Using your data I compute an acceleration of 21.6 fps2 and a speed of 106 mph at the 2nd arrow. Also 0-60 mph in 4.0 sec. [now what could be stupider than math in public?]According to my very rough estimate, using this video, the arrows on the pavement, Google Earth and my calculator, this truck accelerates from a stop and gets to the 2nd arrow, which is ~561 ft (191 m) from its starting point in 7.2 seconds. This is an average of 77.9 ft/sec (23.75 m/sec) or 53 mph (85.5 kph). That seems really quick.
Does anyone know a good formula for guestimating the truck's velocity at the 2nd arrow (561 ft) mark?
If I was managing the CT project I would focus all testing on the dual motor first and GTM with it first. There is so much new on this truck that reducing variables and working on a baseline with only one variant would be the fastest way to get to market. Tri-motor can come later, thats how I would do it.... Has anyone seen any signs of the tri-motor yet?We can't tell. Only one of the trucks so far has been labeled.
There are not too many people that have owned R1T or Lightning and regretted buying one. And I doubt there will be many that will regret buying a CT precisely for the reason you noted here.That’s ludicrous!!!
