    This made my day. My car buddies call my P85D a golf cart (now I do too.). It is fun messing with their GT3s and GTRs.

    That was really awesome to watch. Check out the launch if you can, they only show it briefly. Here is my screen capture:

    I know that they do this many times to help it be consistent, but one of the videos of them all launching is so crazy to see the Tesla almost a car length ahead at launch.

    *EDIT* Definitely wasn't the only one to notice this. Great catch!

    Love it.Love it.Love it.
    with the exception the last 10 sec of the Video they add some funky sound FX to the PD100 Lanching that sounds like it has a deep growling muffler. check it out do you hear it too?

    BTW, the technical term for that feeling you get when the car launches and your back side is yanked against the seat is appropriately called "jerk" (also jolt, surge, or lurch)....the derivative of acceleration. IMO, a much less pleasant sensation than high acceleration.
