    So straightforward it seems like cheating!

    Any idea what his order spec is? I can tell no sunroof or glass roof... also looks like 19" wheels but I can't be sure...

    i love how undramatic it is. no BRAAAAP, no roar, no squeal, no fireworks. just a calmly rising hum. so nuts that it's a mid ten second car. :)

    He dropped the tire psi down to 25 or 30. I would have kept it at 45 for less rolling resistance. It appears the lower psi has a better trade off. We are so close to a legit 10.5 run.

    Lower psi may have improved traction at slow speed more than the loss at high speed
    in which case some Pilot Sport Cups at normal pressure might be all that is needed.

    what if you were to run 19's with lower profile tyres?
    would the slight change in gearing do it?
    (or the opposite of course)

    Good question because the Motor Tend ringer had arachnid 21". Maybe they dropped the PSI down to 25 to get 10.5 @ 125 MPH

    this guy was running 19 inch wheels with the premium interior package nothing else on his build sheet beyond the basic P100D included items like smart air suspension and ludicrous mode

    I've tried dropping pressure, no difference for me...

    I got 2 notices from Drag Times yesterday. The first bested the previous 1/4 mile time by 0.003 sec and then this one beating the new record by 0.084 sec.

    I'm amazed at how easy it is to run a 10.6, just mash the pedal. If I do everything right I turn a 9.7 but launch and clutch engagement has to be perfect, can't nail the throttle in 1st gear, 2nd gear engagement has to be quick but smooth and get to nail the throttle if track conditions are good. The major difference is my ride is only 1790 lbs instead of 5000 lbs.

    yeah it's just absurd how these things can rattle off mid 10s with zero drama or finesse. one speed, all wheel drive. there's simply nothing for the driver to screw it up. it makes a mockery of all those cars howling and squealing, and drivers obsessing over nailing their launch and shifts. it's just like "oh you want to be over there in 10.6 seconds? okay. have a nice day."

    Have I dreamt it or isn't there a mode on the P100D which takes the battery like 50 minutes to heat up? Gives max power for a few minutes? If so, I'm assuming they're using this?

    "Max Battery" is a button you can press that pre-heats your battery so that it can output maximum amperage on demand. Depending on the weather, it takes between 20 minutes and an hour. once the battery is heated to the optimal temperature, it remains at that temp until you turn max battery off. Engaging the "Ludicrous Plus" easter egg also turns on the "Max Battery" heaters.

    These guys are probably using it, but it doesn't make a huge difference. Even in plain old Ludicrous mode, it is easily a 10-second car in the quarter mile.
