Since when Fastestlaps take modified car into consideration and put them on list?

24th rank when it's a modified car? LOOOL
A tons (i mean really à lot ) of cars goes around 55 sec mark on Tsukuba (like the arvou s2000) , this shit has no sense at all

If you look at the Nurburgring lap time list, for example (https://fastestlaps.com/tracks/nordschleife), you will notice 2 modified lap times, one even being the #1 fastest lap.

There are few modified lap times in the laptime charts, they are clearly marked as "modified" and can even be removed from the list if you uncheck Filters > Modified checkbox.

This particular Tesla wasn't even close to the extremes in car modding that we have seen in BM Hot Version etc. This is more like Manthey Racing Porsche GT2. The engine (pardon, the motors) is stock, power output is stock.

Yes the Tesla 3's mods are comparable to the difference between the factory GT2RS and the Manthey modified version. I do think that you should add the factory GT2RS laptime of 6:47.3 in the main Nurburgring list, don't you?
