Tesla Model 3 Performance 1/4 mile 11.771@113.55
vs an Infiniti G35 that didn't stand a chance. :)

Listen to that G35 uselessly spinning its wheels at the start, then the engine as it tries to accelerate. I used to think that sounded like "speed". Now I think it sounds like a noisy, straining piece of the past. :cool:

that's my track! (as in mine because I sit in traffic next to it twice a day ;))
I've even driven on it, but only during the christmas lights display - so 15 mph with the headlights out at night probably isn't quite the same I'm going to guess.

Three races in this video. It appears that DÆrik's upgrade to lighter, wider wheels has helped his quarter mile times and trap speeds.
