I tracked the 3 and Y in one 15min session. The way the Buttonwillow track is configured you have to do a minimum of 3 complete runs to get a hot lap in (out lap, hot lap, cool down). Everything worked out and I managed to get the SUV lap record and a PB in my 3 all in the same session. Later that day, I shaved off another second in my 3 which makes it top 4 fastest Teslas at Buttonwillow. Check the video below and tell me what you think!

Nice driving, as usual! The comparison really shows the benefit of slicks. Your min. corner speeds in the Y on slicks were sick, especially at offramp, bus stop and the sweeper.
Thank you! One thing I want to note on Y speed displayed on screen. It is not precise because it's not taking into account for the smaller UP 18" race wheels. I estimate about 6mph slower than what it actually shows.
