    I didn't take it up that high, but the torque taps out over 60mph. It still has decent acceleration at highway speeds, but it doesn't pin you to the...

    Ha - sorry about that! The battery was 2/3 charge when I started and about half by the time I pulled back into the store. Punching it sucks back a...

    It's a slow blow fuse. It can take ~1,800 amps for 1 second before it blows. Pics/Info: Inside the battery pack - Page 15

    Agreed. The Roadster maxes out around 200kW, so if you punch it when the battery is low it can draw up to 560 amps.

    Some of the variation also comes from differences in the SOC of the lowest brick, which is another factor besides CAC in the ideal range calculation.
