P100DL max power with 36.1?

I'm kicking myself for not grabbing a photo of the IC after my run at the drag strip right after getting 2019.36.1. Unfortunately, my GoPro video from in the car is not quite high res enough to make out the numbers on the screen :-(

I may charge up tonight or tomorrow and do some quick runs in a parking lot to grab the max battery output figures.
 
Yes, please. Very eager to see these results.

Did some pulls this morning at about 87% SoC. Without launch mode, max power was 557kW. 155.5 and 367.5 front/rear. In launch mode (on normal asphalt, not a prepped drag strip so not sure if it was traction limited) peak was 575.7, 181/375 front/rear. And I'm not sure why the front + rear peaks only add up to 556 :)

I just got 2019.36.2.1, installing now but I assume it's just bug fixes.

Good numbers! I think the update doesn’t necessarily up the HP to much, it is more likely the curve of delivery and drop off (torque and HP).

Agreed. I think it's more like 50 more HP from the front motor during certain points in the curve when the rear is otherwise traction limited anyway. The release notes implied as much.

But dyno agrees. Seems like more torque coming from the front motor, even with a cold (~14C) battery. Launches used to not feel as brutal as my P90D, but now I think that may have changed. I assume that follows through to 1/4's.

In this TRC video from July with his raven Model S, the max front and rear hp occur simultaneously at 177.5kw and 360kw. Max battery power was 578.9kw. The sum of new numbers is 18.5kw higher, or about 3.5%. It looks like most of the gain is from the rear motor, though. The TRC car was at a 99% soc vs 87% for the new numbers. There could be more power available.

That's interesting because the rear motor is the same as pre-Raven vehicles. It's only the front motor that shares the fixed magnet design of the model 3.
 
This is my max on 32.12.7
2017 P100DL
I used to get 565-575kW

Yes, of course :)

Interesting. It seems like it may be traction limited then. I'll have to see how much longer the drag strip near me is open this season and get some more runs in so I can capture the stats. The launch certainly felt a lot harder on the strip (or my helmeted head was just heavier as it hit the headrest lol)

I also have a Dragy in my cart on Amazon, but I'm doing No-Spend-November, so I need to wait until December 1st to buy more toys :)
