Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous vs P85D Ludicrous Drag Race

DragTimes recently pitted two Ludicrously quick electric cars together in drag race – the Model S P90DL and P85DL (both Ludicrous enabled).

The two videos consist of a roll race, and a race from a dead stop.

Video evidence shows that the Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous without doubt is quicker, but now we can see the difference compared to P85D (also with the Ludicrous upgrade).

Holmes don’t do slow.

Silly race. Everyone knows that red cars are faster than white cars. 🙂

The white car just needs a few stickers.
They’re good for 5hp each.

A fart can wouldn’t hurt either.

Yeah, and a set of fat racing stripes adds another 10 HP. Put them all on the white car and it would be an even race!

It looked like the red 90d jumped first each time, but it’s hard to tell. Put them on a strip and show me the timing results. I’m sure the 90D is quicker and faster, but without the reaction time this is just a fun video.

I agree, looks that way to me too. Obviously if two cars with identical acceleration race and one starts slightly before the other, the former will have a slightly higher speed all the time and keep pulling away slowly.

The 90 is probably faster, but there’s really not much in it. Would be fun to see how long it’d take the 90 to catch up if the 85 had a 0.05 second head start…!

P90DL 11.22 seconds quarter
P85DL 11.45 seconds quarter

Sacramento Raceway 16 March 2016

Similar state of charge and no changes over “normal” tire pressure. 90DL had 21″ performance tires and 85DL had the 19″ all season tires.

Saw it was on a public street, with no signs of the road being closed to the public.

Didn’t watch.

Ditto w/o the cussin’..find two Tesla drivers who can actually race.. then you’re really doing something. . these two are embarrassing. .probably can’t parallel park w/o the parking assist either…
