Ok there are many people that like to talk up 0-60 times but a lot of people care about what comes after 60, and the fact that the model s (and many other electric cars for that matter) sucks absolute crap after about 80-90 or from a roll. Not surprisingly, this is very apparent when in the quarter mile, the model s loses to cars that cant launch near as good. So what can be done to improve this? I know that battery technology will improve and get lighter and this will help with the fact that the model s weighs around 1000-1500lbs more than most of the cars it races so after your off the line and the extra traction and instant torque advantage goes away and the weight greatly hurts it. Also there is the fact that the power and the torque drops off greatly the faster you go. So to solve this could we not have a quick shifting 2 speed transmission like whats in the rimac? Maybe on just the rear axle or both, i don't know. I mean come on, both the rimac and most teams in formula e have more than one gear. A two speed transmission can be built to be very reliable and with very little additional mechanical losses. I know tesla first tried this with the roadster but i believe that they gave up on it because it couldn't handle the power. But with more that one transmission and when your not trying to send all the instant power through on trans like in the rimac, it works fine. I also wan't to point out that there are transmissions that can take the power: powerglides and turbo 400's running with 1000's of hp at the strip. Cooling issues can be solved right now, its just the fact that not many have built electric cars with the track in mind. The model s certainly doesn't have enough cooling. What I am saying is, is that the race doesn't end at 60, nor does it always start from a stop(like coming out of a corner at the track), and I would like to talk to people about how we can improve this because electric vehicles will dominate at some point and I want us performance people to be ready.
