Watch Tesla Model 3 Performance Race … Model 3 Performance & More

SEP 27 2018 BY ELECTRICCARSTV 5

This time, the Tesla Model 3 Performance races against its most well-matched rival, along with a few others.

We have two newer Tesla Model 3 Performance racing videos for you hot off the presses. We found them on one of the more obscure YouTube channels, so these unique race videos have yet to catch a lot of eyes. In the first short video (above), we watch a Model 3 Performance with 18-inch wheels (red car) face off against an ungraded Model 3 Performance with 20-inch wheels (blue car). It’s always interesting to see the difference that upgrades can make.

Moving forward to the second video, which is much longer, we see the same upgraded blue Tesla Model 3 Performance with 20-inch wheels pit against a variety of random competitors in the Modified class. Check out the video below to see the results. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Well at least 10 years from now the drag strips will be quiet and clean.

“It’s always interesting to see the difference that upgrades can make.”

I’m not very familiar with drag racing, can you explain what differences are you seeing? Are the numbers shown (7.628 / 7.601) the quarter mile times? Seem very similar to me?

1/8 miles i would think.

“Upgrades” are making zero positive difference here. I ran my P3D- at the drag strip last night and my 1/8-mile times were all between 7.55 and 7.59 (as the night got cooler and the battery SOC dropped). Most of this guy’s times were 7.6x, and none were as fast as my fastest. My car is 100% stock, 18″ aero wheels and OEM Michelin MXM4 tires.

Watching the video, I think the driver needs a lesson on staging. The difference between his best time and mine can easily be explained with just staging. Also SOC and battery temperature could account for the differences. The one thing that’s clearly not helping are any so-called upgrades.

What’s interesting is the second video, showing repeated relatively consistent times. Wonder how many kWh the driver used through out the night?
