because electric motors are for pussies.
A Tesla Model S does better burnouts than most traditionally powered cars, just sayin.
^im sorry but what does a burnout have to with anything? Electric motors have torque…. thats it. Theyre shitty, the designs are flawed. We use gasoline engines for a fucking reason. POWWAAA. Want to be a bitch? Buy a tesla or a leaf. But leave real cars to the rest of us who arent pussys.
Can’t really have a proper conversation with people so biased. Teslas win awards and drags races. They’re great cars and if you think otherwise you are wrong to a point. Do some homework we don’t live in the 20’s anymore.
seriously, just read up on the Tesla - it’s not a bad car.
Hey 2tall, don’t be an idiot.
Here’s a free physics lesson:
Do you know that to calculate Horsepower, one measures Torque?
Torque is what moves the car, Horsepower is a measure of how much work is done.
To measure horsepower, you take the torque measurement multiply it by the RPMs at which that measurement was taken and divide that by 5252. This gives you ‘horsepower’, which is a measure of ‘power’.
'Power' is nothing more than the rate of doing work and in this case horsepower is the measure of power it takes to move 550 pounds 1 foot in 1 second (or to move 33,000 pounds 1 foot in one minute).
HORSEPOWER IS NOT WHAT MOVES YOUR CAR, IT’S A MEASURE OF HOW MUCH YOUR CAR CAN MOVE.
Torque is the measure of the rotational force generated by your engine or motor, if electric.
At which point, I have to ask you if you’ve ever been in an electric vehicle, any kind, go kart, golf cart, Tesla, etc. Go drive one that’s not held back by a voltage regulator and get back to me.
There’s gobs of power in electric motors, the torque can be variable or constant and it comes at very low RPMs. Electric cars can literally snap out of the starting gates because they don’t need to build up power at high RPMs the same way engines do. This gives you phenomenal throttle response and pull-away power.
