Testing at Palm Beach International Raceway (March 4th, 2015):

Brooks Weisblat of dragtimes spent the past 365 days trying to squeeze out ever ounce of performance from his Tesla Model P85D… in the end… all he needed were a new set of wheels… courtesy of Speed Design… The new Pulse MV2 Wheels

That’s gotta be the fastest Tesla in the East…. Maybe the whole country !
