That moment when you're first at the stoplight...

I have to admit, I'm very rarely not the first at stop lights ;) Probably because I'm too fast for the lights to go green.

That moment when you're first at the stoplight all ready to race, and there's a tractor trailer beside you.

You rev the engine to 8000 RPMs. The light turns green and you drop the clutch. The car lurches forward and shoves you back into your seat. That giant grin on your face....suddenly fades. The tractor trailer blows by you, a full load of Tesla's in tow. All you can do; is watch the future pull away.

In that case...I should trade my X to get performance version of Model 3!!
Then I don't need to worry about having BMW M3 on my next lane.

That is one that bugs me about the X... the consolation is you can tow an M3 behind the X and still be pretty fast.

I have X 90D...can I beat a 4 sec ICE car for 1000 ft?

Chances are you can - as long as the ICE car isn’t being driven by a professional driver or using launch control.

I don’t worry about them anyway. Most of them end up spinning their wheels. On paper on good pavement; it’s close. An unprepared or imperfect surface gives it over to the Tesla pretty easily to 60.
