Tesla Roadster Sport 553 versus another Tesla Roadster

Here is the video of me driving the Roadster Sport 553 (right lane) vs another Tesla. My personal best was 12.82 seconds. I was just doing a regular acceleration without holding the brake and loading the acceleration pedal. I tried that once and got a horrible time, so I stopped trying to be cute. I still managed 12.82 to 12.88 on a regular basis with approx 75% to 80% charge levels. Once I figure out how to properly launch, my times will come down. I am a total novice at this.

  1. The difference between the Tesla and Tesla Sport did not seem notable.

    What do you get with the Sport Roadster? Not terrifically better acceleration apparently.

    • The difference between the Sport and the non-Sport was significant.
      The best time for the Sport was 12.643.
      The best time for any of the non-Sport Roadsters was 12.989.

      I never lost a head to head matchup against any of the other Tesla Roadsters except my very first run when I messed up my launch. Every time after that the Sport Roadster was consistently able to accelerate faster and produce a better 1/4 mile time.

      It was amazing how consistent the Tesla Roadsters were. My 1/4 mile times were always within 0.1 seconds of each other. The only variable was my state of charge. The higher my charge, the better my time was. It was the same for everyone.

  2. Tesla Roadster the Next Generation Sports Car…

    This is the greatest car ever. Can you imagine to ride all day with the pleasure of Porsche GT3, and to pay about $10 for this. It is just amazing!!!…

  3. Seems like you are a true specialist. Did you study about the issue? *lol*
