The Super Charger is located on the grounds of the Nurburgring GP circuit. They have enough power there to light a medium sized city. Tapping into that power supply would not be a massive undertaking

From what we are told the Goodyear RS are DOT legal. But then again so is a Hoosier A7

We don’t know the specs of the brakes but yes you can assume little to no regen

1. They ran with other traffic in testing which is standard. They did reserve the track when they ran in the official timing sessions.

Yes basically but on a street car using street tires and rubber bushings, chassis stiffness is not really a big deal.

Its more like 400-500lbs minimum. Could be even more on a luxury car like a Tesla

No there are plenty of standard chargers around but just no SuperChargers at the Ring itself. Also not having Superchargers hasn’t stopped anyone (including myself) from running laps in a Tesla there

Trust me in the history of BS manufacturer record attempts at the Ring this doesn’t even rank in the top 10

I generally agree but I will say that you can not accuse Tesla of cheating as they haven’t claimed to set any official lap records. They brought a test prototype and ran laps. All of the actual times came from our guys hand timing not Tesla.

You’ve got to give Tesla credit. They mobilized the shit out of this effort

Why wouldn’t they reuse buyback cars? Gotta save money somewhere right?

You know someone at Porsche was like “Hey the Tesla has broken down! Quick send out a Taycan”!

Porsche may have used the F1 not the F1 RS. Completely different tire

Thanks for the honest question. Unfortunately I just answered that same question a half dozen other times on this post. See if you can find my responses and if you still have any questions I am happy to answer them
