For a lark, J. put his Tesla Model X into Ludicrous Mode for maximum possible acceleration (I heard 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, or about 0.86 g).

I felt the blood drain out of my hands, and felt a surge of blood from the front of my brain to the back. I wondered for a second if I was going to stroke out. And we even ended early, reaching only 50 mph.

These are race car accelerations! Still, the challenging roller coasters can reach 4g, and fighter pilots have worse to deal with. But for a civilian car, quite a shock!

I need aspirin....
