    TMC Book of Records for the Model S...

    So this has been mentioned from time to time, but thinking we can make this an official thread for "firsts" and records for the Model S.

    First to take a Model S cross country: Steve and Jesse for Owner Bill, VIN 38 - Blog story

    Highest elevation driven to date: Cottonwood at Trail Ridge CO, 12,183'

    Velo1 is shooting for Mt. Evans at 14,256' this Spring.

    What will you be the first to do with your Model S?

    First to put 400 miles down in one drive?

    Over time, lets make this the <strike>Guiness</strike> TMC Book of Records for the Model S.

    What will yours be???

    I can't confirm this but maybe the first person to be dropped off at their Model S pickup in another Model S.

    Some other records I've seen posted (but I don't recall the exact #s, so I'll let them fill them in):
    • Highest Wh/mile usage
    • Highest Wh/mile regen
    • Highest projected range (though this is a bit of a software artifact)

    How about longest wait from reservation to delivery? (Will probably go to someone who wants a RHD version in Europe...)

    No ferry ride yet for me. (My wife and I did go on a ferry last weekend, but not in the Model S).

    But I may be the first to get a hitch - it is being installed now; I pick it up Saturday.

    Fastest speed?? Or is the S limited by the speedometer rather than motor output? My Zero is limited by speed in eco mode, but with a strong tail wind in sport mode I've hit about 7 kph faster than its "top speed".

    Or would people get in trouble...?

    We almost got that done at the party Cattledog threw for my car but they ended up going home reserving. I imagine someone has done that already by now.
