    Did they blow a stop sign in the middle of the Thermo Fisher Scientific campus near the end of the video?

    yup... actually says they started race from 30 mph

    from the video's description: "2015 Tesla Model S P85D vs 2006 Lamborghini Murcielago from 30mph roll"

    So this means even Murcielago owners are conceding the 0-30 range to the P85D? :)

    The way all three cars blow right through a stop sign at high speeds is rather disturbing...

    Yeah. Right in front of the Tesla factory, actually. That's a really stupid place to do that, especially when right on the other side of I-880 you've got Cushing Parkway - a 4 lane divided road with absolutely nothing around.

    Of course, any public road is a stupid place to do that, but some places are more stupid than others.

    All Right all these drag videos are predictable. The car 60 ft's good then falls off. Might do well/better in 1/8 mile racing. Especially if it was geared down with the Saleen gears. I hope someone finds out where they got those gears made up at.

    If anyone is interested in a gear swap; I'm sure this place could make a set since they were just straight cut gears(hence the audible gear whine): http://strangeengineering.net/
