Ref: AP - take off from stop lag & aggressive acceleration in v10
I'd expect that given the multitude of sensors it has, the car should be able to take off within microseconds of the car in front's movement. But, while it has improved w/ V10, the lag between when the car in front starts moving to when your M3 takes off is still ~2.5 sec.
Its especially irritating because in v10, the M3 accelerates pretty hard to recover the car-to-car distance after the delayed take-off. One thing Tesla must realize is that when people are using AP/ auto cruise, comform overwhelmingly trumps performance (acceleration). It needs to be smooth, not jerky. While it may be tolerable for the driver, its especially annoying for the passengers. Its so bad in fact that (under duress from the family), *I have been forbidden from using AP on surface streets*.
Tesla, please fix this ASAP
