    This is a corner of TrackMustangsOnline for all EV owners taking their cars to a track. The EV owners should be able to gain considerable knowledge from TMO members and as it turns out even Mustang wheels fit on a Tesla Model 3. Everyone is welcome to participate.

    Any guess on recharge times between sessions?
    What size portable generator is needed to recharge? It may be a while before tracks offer recharge stations

    At 120 V it’s very slow. Lime Rock has six Level two chargers, 240V, so they are out there but few and far between.

    From the FB page from a member who has tracked his P3D+.

    "Cameron Rogers Buttonwillow is about 6% per lap, which works our to around 18 miles of range to go 3 miles, or 16 laps at full speed.

    Doesn’t sound like a lot, but most SCCA races are 15 or so laps long."

    @TMSBOSS you really need 240V as 120V takes forever. There are confirmed chargers at Barber as well. Buttonwillow in Central CA has a Super Charger 12 miles from the track and Thunderhill is rumored to have a charger but I have not seen it.

    That's pretty good. Seems like you could run a whole day if you; had a supercharger close by and only ran ~10min per session (4 sessions?).

    You should be golden with a supercharger available -- even running full 25 min sessions. I think I can run three 20 min sessions at Barber using 240 volt charging.

    I would imagine the sound of tire on pavement would be amplified in an EV if for no other reason but the lack of motor sound.

    Not only the tire noise but the wind noise as well. Still quieter than our Ford Fusion and a lot quicker. :D

    Yes it is. The subsidy aspect of selling EV's can't last forever. Sooner or later they will have to be competitive in the market place. While I like the car I'm not a fan of the stock unless you can buy at a really low price. If it goes that low look for a merger or hostile takeover!

    Getting your goods to market (And a lot of it) before other start diluting it can mean survival. Often the first to put it out isn't always around when the market matures.
