Was TC really off? And if so, what are the chances we'll be able to do it without unplugging things?
....and that's how you install $2000 worth of rubber on asphalt.
This is the Brake and Roll test. Tesla style. Just with no brake.
That looks like a RWD car to me... or it certainly has a lot of RWD bias in power delivery
The original link claims otherwise Tesla on Twitter
that is a lot of power
Boy, look at all the fun Tesla won't let us have.*
*Unless we unplug stuff
looks like a square tire/wheel setup, but hard to see at this resolution... anyone with better eyes than me?
That's not the way I'd expect a RWD vehicle to move.
It's extremely likely that the design is such that the rear motor is capable of far more power than the front.
Yep looks the same to me
I'd like to believe that they wouldn't post a video from the official account where they relied on unplugging sensors. It's easy enough to just have a software switch for Performance that tells TC to back the **** off.
I'm not holding my breath... it's Tesla, after all.
For the Model 3 P to be a track demon as Musk insists it will, it would have to have a mode that turns traction control off and even ABS possibly. This is probably going to be only available on P spec cars.
I certainly hope you are right!
My Subaru WRXs could do similar stunts in the snow with TC ON. Not sure about dry asphalt, but still.
Any wiggle room will be appreciated for not-on-track shenanigans. For on-track, all off would be ideal of course.
Perfect for burnouts at the Dairy Queen.
That was also a thing in Montreal, so that seems to be cross-border. Good times!
The reason I wonder if TC was actually off is that a "relaxed" TC like Subaru's allowed for a little opposite steering while not cutting power or jumping on the brakes. It allowed me to hold a slide until I turned the wheel a little too much at which point HAL 9000 would cut in.
Watching the above video, I did not see extreme opposite steering angles, so I wonder of that driver was simply testing to see where the limit was and when the machine would jump in and kill the party.
differing levels of intervention would be great. similar to most performance cars in this class that have something along the lines of 'normal, sport, track, and wet.'
can't wait to see some real performance driving... this driver looks like he's just messing around, trying to get the wheels to slip and make smoke which can certainly be fun in it's own right.
Elons pic of the first one off the line looks staggered to me.
Very nice, thanks for posting. This I think is the new Thunderhill Raceway Park skidpad (near Willows, CA). I hope to try it some day.
