    Very cool. R&T has no problem shredding rubber from tires they don't own.

    I'm curious how many people have turned off TC just to try out smoking the tires. If you have a P85 will it smoke the tires by just hitting the accelerator? I'm hearing a clunk noise in my drivetrain when slowly accelerating/decelerating so I haven't tried yet. Just curious how easy it is.

    Hmm. Something is wrong with my car then. Re-torqued the rear wheels based on a recommendation and took the car for a test drive. The car can barely chirp the wheels and the "clunk" is still there. Guess its time for a visit to the service center...

    It's very easy if you turn off the traction control. It will only chirp and go if it's turned on.

    I had traction control off and it barely chirped the tires. It still pulls hard, but based on what everyone has said here and the videos I have seen on YouTube there is something very wrong with my car. I called Tesla and am waiting for SC to call back (mainly for the clunk noise, but will bring this up now as well).
