Updated with more info on this Cybertruck (posted by @Cyberbestia)

This is a regular Cybertruck, running Cyberbeast software with manufacturer plates and was being used by several influencers at GigaTexas. It was limited by software to a top speed of 112 mph, which is why all the bells were going off at the finish line. Another set of influencers noticed the speed limitation and Tesla engineers updated the firmware on the regular CT to simulate the Cyberbeast UI, however, it's not a Cyberbeast.

The Cyberbeast is built entirely differently, moving rear motor to the front and having two additional motors at the rear, not something that can be duplicated via a firmware update, which was what the engineers were testing on the CT in the video.



Pretty impressive performance from the Cyberbeast. That's a top dog dragster it's going up against.

That was fun

they’d previewed these drag race vids in the initial CT review

I was/am hoping they do some track running. We know EVs are fast off the line (esp if they weigh 7klb), and amazing it can lose by relatively little to a Turbo S, but I’d like them to show some cornering and hard braking performance in the CT

Wow! 911 Turbo S is my ultimate dream car. CT beats the launch acceleration of this top dog. That’s insane. Losing to this machine marginally in a quarter mile drag is a honor! Hope there was no software throttling on the Beast!

Gotta love the Turbo S (or any other 911 for that matter)

Curious to see how the Cybertruck would do against other 911s in the lineup.

No, it’s 100% about tires.
Really? I wouldn't have even thought about that. Would this be bc of the current tires being more terrain tires, or bc of the size? I am an electrical guy so this is outside my wheelhouse.

Would have been nice if they knew that and said it in the review. And confirmed if that BEEP was the speed limit. Maybe in the future, Tesla can offer a performace rim/tire setup that increases the speed limit so you can really test a 1/4 mile race haha

did Tesla lend them the cyberbeast? I didn't watch/listen to every second but the CB in the video has a manufacturer plate

All tires have a speed rating because at some point / speed / duration the heat build up will destroy the structural integrity of the tire carcass leading to catastrophic failure. OEM’s must govern top speed to fall in line with the speed rating for the tire they fit to the vehicle.
