We attended Tesla Track day at North Carolina Center for Automotive Research (NCCAR) hosted by Out of Spec Motoring last month in North Carolina.
I rode-along with one of the instructors in his car as he showed me some things to watch out for on the track and with my Model X, then, of course, we started talking Tesla. The Model 3 Long Range is incredibly quick and after all this time in the larger Teslas, I keep forgetting how agile it is. I made gratuitous use of the door hold and learned the lines to follow, I think a Model Y Performance in Track Mode or a Roadster II would be quite an experience on the track!
The Model X is surprisingly quick and nimble for a vehicle with a weight rating of over 5000 pounds! My tire pressure started at 51 psi and after heating was just approaching the mid-50s. I did manage to get the system to back me off for both heat and power consumption. The Traction control system light was blinking nearly constantly.
They taught us about safe handling on the track and what the Model X P100D with Ludicrous Mode (Now Model X Performance with Ludicrous Mode Upgrade) could truly do. Amazingly we did the whole day’s event starting with less than 50% charge!
