    I remembered my vague estimations about how fast 250HP roadster could go. In that thread I came up with about 160mph in appropriate third gear. Some time ago we also learned that Tesla had to limit the top speed to 125mph because of adequate cooling as current motor is air cooled. I understand there may not be enough space around for effectively aircooling it while constantly running above 120+kW. Liquid cooling?

    In that therad someone mentioned that ESS is not capable of constantly outputting more than 120kW. Did we learn something that says otherwise?
