    It'll be a sad day when Ozone replaces nitro as the smell hanging in the air at the drags.

    There has been an electric drag scene for quite some time - but few spectators as whilst quick it lacks the noise and theatre of ICE cars.
    Marvellous things so quickly get mundane

      How many retards have retarded working on ic cars????? Only a billion. There a lot of smart people out there and electric is no different to ic they will be modded and some will be total rubbish and unsafe and some will be like Carroll Shelby it's just the way it is.

        Earlier this month, Tesla changed the advertised horsepower of the Model S P85D from 691 hp to 463 hp.

        The company also offers the ‘Ludicrous upgrade’ to increase the max power output of the battery pack from 1300 to 1500 Amps, which enables 532 hp according to Tesla. – still significantly less than the original 691 hp.
        Whoops... Tesla telling fibs about power output. After lecturing other about fibbing

        From an advertised 515kw to a revised 345kw. Class action perhaps?

          I drove a P85D the other day in Insane Mode (the Ludicrous ones aren't here yet). Sure felt like quite a bit more than 436hp...it felt like an honest 700!

            Full torque from 0 rpm will probably do that.

              dont really think 436hp is going to push 2.3T to an 11 second 1/4 mile.

                Seeing a handful of these around Perth, which is keen considering there is sfa charging infrastructure and the nearest dealer is Melbourne....

                  The Electric motor / drive train modding argument sounds eerily similar to the 'Only workshops will be able to modify this new fangled EFI stuff' argument of 1986

                    They do have it however it's a bit smaller to fit the front motors.

                      Trap speeds for Tesla show its all in the launch. A RWD Hellcat will chase it down.

                        Yes, but you can't fight physics. 997 911 turbo is the closest match I can find, 480hp, AWD, tons of grip, 0-60 in 3.4, 11.6 1/4 and it weighs 600kg less than the Tesla. I have no doubt it needs less power to accomplish the same time down the 1/4 mile, but it is nowhere near the low 400s. There are people putting RWD teslas on the dyno and getting 400+ hp - http://insideevs.com/video-autocar-s...s-to-the-dyno/

                            Why is everyone banging on about it running 11's, shouldn't the trap speed be more telling of the power output?

                              Close enough to prove to you it's the realms of possibility?

                                Do those "formulas" work when powered by electrical motors? Or are they strictly physics? Something with a bazillion horsepower but take ages to get to full power won't allow enough time to accelerate so would give a false reading for example.
