    You posted it in the COMEDY category but I thought it was a bit racy :) Sorry ... best I could do. Mind you, your line was good - "Fastest car I've ever owned, Come on Elon, its a bit slow off the mark" :D

    Nice little toy that Draggy, not come across that before. Might be worth a link in your video description?

    I think the USA timings are with a one-foot-rollout, probably for the reason you describe.

    Are you doing stamp-on-accelerator, or pedal-dance-launch? Not sure if the pedal dance is available on 75 (I presume the "I want my Mommy" mode isn't - that's the press-and-hold override screen button for even higher performance)

    Ages since I've done the pedal-dance, from memory it is:
    • Press and continue to hold brake pedal
    • Press accelerator to the floor and release
    • You are still pressing the brake, right? :)
    • Release that when you are ready to go (there's probably a timeout limit)

    Lots of discussion in these forums about this , but certainly the non-P models do not launch from a standstill like the P models do - they have a bit of a "laggy" throttle feel. Hence the comparatively pedestrian 0-30 time.
