Does anyone understand the logic behind that Motor Trend 1 foot rollout? Their claim: We subtract a one-foot rollout from the launch to simulate dragstrip performance (dragstrip runs started the whole quarter-mile acceleration craze and remain the only practical way for most owners to test their own cars, so we want our numbers to match those acquired in this way) So as I understand it, Motor trend doesn't count the first foot of travel. According to Motor Trend regarding the SP100D: The car crosses 1-foot mark and official timing starts. The car is traveling at 5.9 mph, averaging 1.30 g of longitudinal acceleration. So with the SP100D, the car isn't at zero MPH when the timing starts, it is traveling at 5.9 MPH. So isn't that 2.28 seconds a 5.9-60 time? That near 6 mph that isn't really included is nearly 10% of the final 60 MPH speed. At an acceleration of 1G, that first foot takes 1/4 second. Motor Trend says the Tesla is accelerating at 1.3Gs at that point so the elapsed 1 foot time should be less. Don't get me wrong, accelerating to 60 MPH in 7.4 car lengths is amazing, going from "6-60" or even a fudged 0-60 in 2.28 seconds is just as amazing. Still, it just doesn't seem all that accurate.
