TMC Podcast #21 will stream live today at 1PM PDT. We will be discussing the wider release of FSD Beta, as well as other topics. As always, you can watch it and participate in the live chat on YouTube.
The Model S long range did AWFUL on the first iteration of the cold FTP. I wonder whether they tweaked it and reran it and now can use a larger multiplier. Though it was the battery capacity not the efficiency that suffered, so not sure that would actually affect the scalar the way the formulas are set up.
In their latest submissions I finally noticed that they include their worksheets for how they obtain the scalar and the formulas are public domain so it should be possible to calculate the scalar myself now if I ever get around to it.
If I did, I could more intelligently speak to whether the cold FTP result likely had anything to do with this adjustment.
