Passing a light today one turned right next to me so I punched it bit and since it was from a roll he couldn't really catch up but didn't really get blown away either. He was there hanging but it wouldn't have been for long, we were in the 20 to 60 range and really couldn't go more since the area we were in. The next light turned red and I new he wanted a go. So the green hit and knowing I'm on the streets, put it in second and slowly rolled on it - still spun some. He of course got the jump as it's awd and then when I connected floored it and pulled on him fast. He of course, was one car length ahead and as my front bumper started hitting his rear bumper, he shut it down.

I know he was thinking he won that and that's fine... I can see the ego Tesla guys must have but I'm sure he looked in his side view and said oh shit... Better let that train pass as I'm going to loose. Waiting to see something posted somewhere so we can have a good laugh. I was pulling him in fast and would have blown by him by 80ish range for sure.

Hey, props to him either way...

AWD from a dig is tough to beat... I smoke just about everything up to 40 mph in my Jeep.

No one ever wants to race the Viper. I plan on getting some DRs as soon as I get mine past 500 miles. (If it will ever get here)

Glad you are out enjoying your HC. Win or lose...still better than driving a Prius.

Didn't bother me one bit! I knew going at it he would pop ahead and I'm sure he knows that hence the quick shut down or he is one of those, "HAHAHA I beet you to 40!" He knows what went down when he tried to catch up in the beginning....

It's all good. Our cars look soo much better than those things. The more I see em here in SoCal the more I dislike their look.

I was at a local "establishment" Friday night and people were watching a Tesla roll by and when they looked at me I said, "That's the sound of his personality, Wanna hear mine?" Everyone laughed...

Not dogging them but for 130k + for a P85D.. just nutty.
No kidding. It's not just about transportation for me, getting from point A to point B, never has been. It's about the 'experience', the journey. I want most of my senses involved (hmmm, I might lick my cat...so that would be all of them...lol). I want to see it, FEEL it, hear it, smell it, I want the rumble, the noise, all of it, otherwise you might as well be in the back seat taking a nap...

The Tesla is a bad ass car, make no bones about it. Those bashing it, have you ever ridden in one? It has some amazing features. I'd have zero issue owning one. Lets not forget this isn't a massive GM/Ford/Chrysler/Toyota operation. This guys set out to do something and did it. Musk is a genius. Ragging on someone else's choice in car is just childish. There is a butt for every seat. Don't get all pissy just because someone likes something different from you.

I'm not saying one has to love the car, but if you can't respect what that car is and how it was done, that's just ignorance. I will never own a chevy, but doesn't mean I can't respect some of the things they put out there. Big difference. I could mimic your comment about taking a stick to the eye vs owning a chevy.

You can speak your opinion and he can speak to his. Thats your, his and everyone's right. His point still stands, you don't have to agree with it. :)
