Tesla Model S track tested at Buttonwillow raceway

LOL, no I did not curse at it outloud. I realize of course it's not a purpose-built race car, but I did not expect power limitation to come on so soon. I went to Willow Springs and the Streets of Wilow before, and on both tracks it took like half a day before the power limitation kicked in. Not sure if it had to do with the fact that it was winter. So it was somewhat disappointing that it started limiting power here so soon. Also wish there was a way to tell if it's the battery, the inverter, or the motor that overheats. On Model S there are no gages to show that. I used the Garmin VIRB Elite camera with built-in GPS. And yeah, I noticed when you have rapid direction and/or speed changes, it goes out of whack for a few seconds. Not sure what to do about it other than getting professional equipment. Still, it's accurate for most of the track.
