    My neighbor just got a P100D and he was talking about some procedure of warming the batteries up before you are allowed to use Ludicrous mode. Can someone explain? Is the P90D the same procedure?

    Per my experience I can always turn on Ludicrous even when the battery is cold. Of course at such times the power output is limited. Maybe he was talking about max battery?

    Probably Ludicrous+
    It requires optimum battery conditions
    Is this what you were thinking of?

    My friend has a P100D+ and yes, to get "max power" for the ludicrous launch mode you need to warm the batteries. The time needed seems to vary, but he did mention waiting 20-30 minutes before (I assume this was when the car was first turned on after sitting all night). I think this only applies to the P100DL+ special mode. Here is a page I found describing everything:

    This is how you engage Tesla's new Ludicrous Plus mode

    On my P90D you can go into Ludicrous mode anytime but if you want to do a 'launch' then you have to enable the max battery temp. You don't have to let the battery heat up to optimum level to do the launch tho.

    I have a P100D and I'm certain it's the same for the P90D.

    In order to get the absolute fastest acceleration time you need to allow battery to get to maximum operating temperature. This is true for Ludicrous and Ludicrous + mode. You can still accelerate at a ridiculous rate in either mode but to get the best time you need to get the battery at max operating temperature.

    This usually takes 30-40mins when battery is at a resting temperature. It is kind of annoying but luckily it's still pretty ridiculous fast in Ludicrous mode regardless of battery temperature.

    Any performance model will have max battery power below the acceleration option under the driving sub-menu. This heats the battery to an optimal temperature for maximum power output and performance. Non-P models don't have this option.
