I could of sown it was 5.5sec because I used to think to myself that the AWD was a full second quicker at 4.5. Now, I noticed it now list 5.1 0-60... am I going crazy here?

    The standard-range battery version was advertised as 5.6s 0-60. That's probably what you were thinking of.

    5.5 sounds about right for the SR

    You might be mixing up SR and LR. From last year

    0-100km/h shows at 5.4 seconds. Then again, 60mp/h is different from 100 km/h

    there have been some media articles and videos that presented the SR 0-60 time when discussion the LR. perhaps some of those incorrect reports confused you.

    LR has always been marketed as 5.1 seconds

    Nope. You're going crazy.

    (RWD was always 5.1 for 0-60)

    Vehicle Virgins VBOXd 4.4 going slightly uphill. 18" aero wheels. He's gonna do mine with 19s, and it'll be lowered, with wheels and PS4S. Should go down slightly but supposedly new update improves power a little. Ill text him and ask to borrow VBOX

    The Tesla Model 3 Does 0-60 MPH In 4.4 – 4.6 Seconds, Way Faster Than Tesla’s Claims

    But the more relevant bit seems to be his # is significantly quicker than anyone else has been able to get out of the same car.

    4.6-4.8, with rollout (so really 4.9-5.1) is what every other professional review (from the drag times guy to actual car mags) appear to get.

    unless your 20's weigh low 20lbs, you'll probably actually have a slower 0-60 time.

    Also the rubber can offset that time. Anyone have suggestions for 20’s for a good price?
