Where do I get racing/track-day Electrons for my Model S…

I also have other cars that I track and when I take those cars to the Track I put racing fuel into them for higher performance…I wondering where I can source racing EV electrons for my new Model S if I were to take it to the track!

mmmmmm Racing-HPWC - I feel the power!

Many tracks have 14-50 or other 240 volt outlets available for power tools and RVs. You might want to call and check but you may just have to look around when you are there.

@dortor - Talk to Tesla and see if the can adjust the car to run on Muons rather than Electrons. Should get 200 times as much energy.

I know when dragtimes did their runs for the record in the S they were charging up right at the track to get the most voltage out of the pack. That's how they got their fastest time. I'm looking to hit a local 1/8 mile soon and see what times I can get. I want to try a few ideas for launching the car.

Will a fully charged Model S accelerate faster than a halfway charged Model S?

nickjhowe | March 10, 2013

@DouglasR - the only impact I'm aware of is if the car is half empty because you've been thrashing it. If the Roadster is anything to go by it gets to the point (based on videos I've seen of the Roadsters on track days) where it can't dump enough heat, and performance begins to suffer.

The tracks near me have a few 14-50 plugs for RVs, though it isn't clear I will be able to use them yet. It does make for having a group Model S outing less interesting, since there will be contention for charging.

Those high octane racing electrons can be elusive indeed. Darned charged particles moving at insane speeds and all. Hard to catch in a net.

dortor | March 10, 2013

but what if I made the net have really really small holes?

It's so crazy, it just might WORK!

I suspect a “Flux Capacitor” should do the trick.
