Tesla Model S takes on Pikes Peak

Posted on July 1, 2016 by T Sportline

Earlier this week Blake Fuller, the founder and CEO of Go Puck and his Tesla Model S (previously our TS6 build) took on the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 2016 and set a record for production electric vehicle class. Fuller completed the 12.42 mile course in 11:48.264 which set the record for EV Production class.

Fuller purchased our 6th Model S company vehicle, a P90D and made a lot of changes to improve efficiency. The Model S interior was stripped out and a roll cage was added at which point the Model S lost around 800 pounds of weight while being race prepped. Fuller and team had to resort to primitive ways to keep the battery cool during the span of the weekend.
