I'm still in shock over Elon himself replying to me (again) on Twitter. I never thought lightning would strike twice in a lifetime.

I've been petitioning him for a Ridiculous Speed Mode for the Performance Model 3 for a long time now. I guess I finally wore him down :D

No need to add screenshots of tweets, you can link directly to them and they show up here (so others have ready access to it)

Unfortunately not possible, P3D's have a different, higher-capacity Silicon Carbide inverter that's necessary to handle the bigger current draws for the additional power.
Are you basing that on this tweet?
I read the tweet differently. It sounds like the hardware is identical in AWD & Performance (including the silicon carbide inverters), and the only difference is the lot sorting.

I think Elon meant ludicrous is as fast as possible.......however “plaid” is beyond being ludicrous in the fashion world.

Guess he won’t be wearing plaid shirts anytime soon. :)

Pretty sure the launch mode on the new Roadster will be “plaid” which I think means M3P will prob just continue to have “Track Mode” as its perk. I rather like that it’ll do 3.2s 0-60 every time I hit the peddle regardless of an option engaged.

Plaid is what happens when you go to Ludicrous Speed, as you can see in the clip @Foxtrotter posted.

As I tell my passengers, this car doesn't have Ludicrous Speed so I can't go to Plaid. Now you know how nerdy my passengers tend to be.
