    Thats an intresting way to get a mobile charge. Just out of curiosity how many passes are you geting before a noticable drop in performance?

    Interesting... a couple of notes/thoughts on that cool charging setup:

    - It appears that the cars/HPWC are accepting 277V, which other people have reported doing as well. In those cases, it appears the car will limit current to keep the charge rate in the 20kWH range. In the video the car is charging at 34 of 42A... and the charge limit is set to 41A. I assume this is something you dialed in manually, and the car is reducing below that?

    - With a 150KW generator, you could run 7 -15 HPWC's depending on what current you set them up for... :)

    Love the wheels. How much do they weigh?

    I found the generator interesting given Tesla recommends you not actually hook the HPWC up to one (in the install guide).

    this is really cool! a few questions ...

    1. did you notice any quarter mile performance difference between, say, 80% charge and 100%? at what point does quarter mile performance begin to degrade?

    2. did you use the "max battery power" button?

    3. creep on or off?

    4. do you use the "hold" feature and then just mash the gas, or is there more nuance?

    If you watch the races it looks like he's using launch control (car moves/sets a little by prior to launch), which means he's using max battery as well.

    Technically almost all electricity comes from a "generator" of some sort. I think they just strongly advise against it to not give people the idea they can tote around a portable generator for range extending.

    @ fiksegts Congratulations. Did you ever have a chance to weigh the added weight of the pano roof with your new scales?

    Looking at the nearly full state of charge I would assume that is taper - it is falling off due to battery approaching full charge.

    one of the scales was off, I returned them for a new set which I haven't tested out yet....

    I was hoping for 10.69999, I don't think there is much more to do... car is coming off hard with a 1.55 60' time....

    It looks like the trap speed at 1/8 and 1/4 mile can be 2 mph higher though. Probably can hit 10.72 after couple more try.

    I looked back at what I have posted in some older thread (shown below). P100DL fastest 60 foot is 1.543 second (Tesla Racing Channel's P100DL). So 1.55 second could be even better.


    And for those that don't know what I am talking about, here is what I posted in another thread. Showing data from TRC's P100DL performance.

    P100DL 1/8 mile performance (fastest shown first):
    6.805 second at 102.854 mph. 60 foot: 1.543 second (World record for any Tesla. For comparison, Dragtimes' Vbox number on a different P100DL ran 6.8s at 101.9 mph)
    6.816 second at 101.903 mph (with launch control). 60 foot: 1.550 second
    6.837 second at 103.217. 60 foot: 1.575 second
    6.965 second at 100.74 mph (without launch control). 60 foot: 1.611 second

    Always had heard that launch control didn't make much difference, but this makes it look like with launch control it could be as much as .100 faster.

    Made some runs with my MS P90DL but didn't use launch control on any of them. Might have to go back.

    Please let us know how it works out. I'd heard the same. Now that I think about it, I've never made a run down the track using launch mode.
