Tesla Roadster Sport NEDRA record 12.643 at 1/4 mile

Wayland Invitational IV
Scotty Pollacheck, the rider for the Killacycle, had some free time late Saturday evening and was driving the yellow Tesla that DaveD owns (181). He did 13.000 seconds with a Tesla Roadster 2008 that was not fully charged.

So I offered Scotty Pollacheck my new 2010 Tesla Roadster Sport (553) with about a 75% charge and fully warmed up in Performance mode.

Scotty is a lightweight (135 lbs) professional driver/rider. I let him do two runs in the Tesla Roadster Sport and he promptly set the new records.

12.643 and 12.715. You have to do two runs within 1% of each other. If you have it, then the lower of the two counts as the record. We submitted the record to NEDRA (National Electric Drag Racing Assoc) for the SP/A3 class, which is where the Tesla Roadsters are classified.

Record run at 12.643

Backup run to confirm the record at 12.715 (against a Tango)
