    That's pretty good. It is the same result as the P85D insane mode. With the P90DL refresh and the P100DL, no Mustang will be beating Tesla.

    By the way, your thread should belongs in the "driving dynamics" section
    Model S: Driving Dynamics

    Ugh, a MUSTANG???? I have a P90D on order but I guess that I now may reconsider and go with the P100D. :(

    His result is P90D non-Ludicrous that runs 11.7 second at 1/4 mile.

    The record so far for P90D with Ludicrous runs 10.8 seconds. If you get P100D with Ludicrous, it will runs 10.6 seconds.

    Oh, I see. Too bad I didn't opt for L when I placed my order, as we all know it's no longer an option in the P90D.

    I bet if you called Tesla they'd be glad to take your $10,000 to software enable the Ludicrous option. It's not available to new orders since the P100D's are out.

    Good point and if they agreed, they would probably end up charging me $10.5K because of that $500 change order request.

    They shouldn't. They still have the store item that you can order to upgrade a P90D to a P90DL for $10k. So after delivery you could pay $10k to make it a L, and then spend $20k more to make it a P100DL... :)

    Interesting, I was under the impression that they wouldn't software upgrade the NEW P90D. Maybe it's just that you can't order the L option in the new build. Thanks for sharing!

    Who knows maybe they won't, but I can't seem them turning down $10k for flipping a switch and installing an underline.

    10k + labor
    I was told it's a 2 day job, did not get an exact labor cost.

    Was that Sac Race Park?

    That's a good ET. Not a particularly fast track, especially in hot air.

    The mustang was obviously wearing slicks an was not stock. The sixty says slicks, the MPH says modified.

    EDIT - You tree'd him hard. Funny stuff.

    I think that is for a P85D to P85DL. We have had reports that all P90Ds already have the hardware and that it is just a software switch to go P90DL.

    I'm just relaying what the service center is saying.
    The upgrade from P85D to ludicrous is only 5k.
    So I'm fairly sure they knew we were talking about a P90D as they said 10k + labor

    Note to road warriors:

    You are not going to beat cars specifically set up for drag racing. You won't even beat pickups. Mod'd Stangs or Camaros? No.

    At the DHRA Diesel Nationals in Texas, we ran [email protected] in a street legal 6420lb 4x4 pickup that was driven to the track.



    That is not considered fast.

    A Tesla P90 is crazy quick for a street car, perhaps the quickest. A modified car used for drag racing will walk away from it though.

    Pretty sure P100DL will be 10.6x second.

    10.6 for a 'drag car' is no longer considered quick. IIRC, that video is ~10 years old and the fastest trucks that event were running 9.xx seconds. The class I ran in was the 10.50 Index Pro Street class. However, I did my license for Super Gas at 9.20's in a NA Camaro running a crate engine and gasoline.

    In any case, you missed the point. Folk were posting "You Should Beat A Mustang" are not familiar with dragracing. Mustangs run anywhere between 17 seconds and 4 seconds in the quarter. "You Should Beat A Stock Mustang" is more realistic goal. Once you're modified, all bets are off.

    The Tesla is not even the quickest street legal electric car when you are talking about modified cars.

    The Flux Capacitor is now the world’s fastest street-legal electric car

    Cliff Notes: Stock Production Cars are slow compared to modified Drag Cars. This will never change.
