You might want to change your title to reflect that a Model 3 was involved!

@ODWms Thanks for the post.

Wow. And that's even not the performance M3 which would make them look like VW bugs.
That 5% upgrade is very cool that Tesla gave us.

Hellcat with the right driver should give the P model a run for its money.

2 WD against AWD. The Hellcat was gaining . They only raced to 60 MPH. They got the weight wrong on the AWD model 3 too. Don't those Hellcats have two different keys? a Red and a Black. Red for racing mode. Wonder which one they used.

Point being, that the 3 was up against a car in a drag race that was “out of its league,” and still won. 60 was the race. The AWD non P has half the horsepower. The P would have been a more “equal” challenger (no pun) to the Dodge, would have beat it more soundly; and even it it would have been at more than a 250 horse deficit.

I'd rather be in a Tesla. Wouldn't like an engine sitting in my lap maybe losing my legs.
