Interesting that the M5 beats the Model 3 on every performance metric. But lap time is identical.
Obviously a well sorted chassis on the model 3.

its literally one track and is therefore not conclusive. The m5 has a much better chassis and better suspension for handling. Theres no denying that the Model 3 is a beast in Autocross though
