  1. That’s 2.75Gs of acceleration.

    I find that hard to believe as achievable without like rockets strapped on or something. Just the tire grip and downforce required alone would be a problem for a production car.

    For context: Top fuel dragsters need non-street legal tires, huge airfoils for downforce, and to operate on a track with a specially finished surface to even get close to that acceleration.

  2. This is cool, but can we just slow down for a second? I feel like the EV “who can do 0-60 the fastest” race is getting out of hand. We already have a 5 seat sedan that can go 0-60 faster than multiple new multimillion hypercars, 2 seconds to 60 is ridiculous, it’s cool, but just ridiculous. Can we focus on other parts of how the car drives? We have already gone crazy with 0-60 times, we can move on.

  3. That’s nice I guess. But I just want affordable electric cars, with reasonable range, that are actually available for purchase. Bring on the nice boring ECivics and Corolla-E’s please.

  4. Tesla needs glue to get the 2.0 0-60 times. On non glue it’s a little slower.

    With rocket boosters, it could do it.

    With even *stickier* glue, yes. Theoretically the energy to reach 60 mph is the same, so you “just” need double the horsepower. You may need higher C discharge batteries and a beefier motor. This adds weight so you need slightly more than double the horsepower.

    This seems doable. Just upsize the motors, use a separate one for each wheel, and it can be done. Plaid has 3 motors. Use 4 bigger ones.

    The problem is the traction – that stickier glue you are gonna need will seem kinda like cheating cuz it sorta is.
