NOTE=Tesla Admits To Sometimes Limiting Battery Output / HP If Launch Mode Is Used Too Often.

It is a bit confusing, but actually the P100D is the only model we know for 100% sure that doesn’t have the excessive use/output limit on it (new pack/hardware/BMS design).

“…using launch mode places an increased stress on the entire powertrain accelerating aging and fatigue of various components. The computer systems automatically track launch mode usage and continually estimate fatigue damage. Depending on how launch mode is used, the computer may eventually limit the available power during launch mode to protect the powertrain. Note that this is a common strategy also employed in other high performance cars. As discussed, upgrading to the P100D ludicrous will remove this limit and will not be limited in the future as the P100D does not have this limit for launch mode.”

…Ludicrous will run sub 11 seconds, so there you have the difference.

The Tesla driver delayed a lot of time in the start.

yeah someone needs to analyse the video to see what the delay is between the two cars. seems like they ran 1/4 mile in about the same time

The Porsche driver cheated a bit at the start. It wasn’t a delay

Tesla driver delayed,, Tesla by itself —

Couldn’t they electronically adjust/calculate the time based on when the nose reaches a point an inch or two after the start? Seems that would settle all of the false, poor and delayed starts. Or is that one of the few remaining pieces that make this an “art”?
