LR RWD Acceleration

LR RWD Acceleration

Finally got around to testing acceleration since the Dec 2019 power increase. Same location, same weather, same SoC. Right about a quarter second faster to 60. Has anyone done before and after testing of the SR or MR?

Didn’t clock my LR RWD but just know it’s faster. Absolutely live the concept of downloading a faster car

Don’t get too excited-some of us have lived through updates that slowed down the car. Tesla giveth, and Tesla taketh away.

I remember the period of time when folks were claiming slower acceleration, but i’ve never seen any actual data on that, and it never felt like it ever slowed down after an update to me since July ‘18 delivery.

Poor man's tip for getting fairly accurate 0-60 times (would give credit but forgot where I saw it):

1. On Tesla browser, go to Google and search for stopwatch.
2. Start stop watch.
3. Using a passenger or camera mount, start video of the speedo and stopwatch. Obviously use highest frame rate possible on your camera or phone.
4. Hit the gas. I mean accel pedal. lol
5. After the run, calculate elapsed time between 0mph and 60mph.

Didn’t clock it, but it’s definitely faster.

@M3phan, the infamous slow down release was before July 2018. May 2018 to be precise.

That probably has more to do with your lead foot from enjoying a faster car:)
