    Vendor Rear Adjustable Camber Bushings for Model S/X Group Buy

    Yes. Wifey said "You are getting too serious about the Tesla" and now no more comments from her. 265/35/21 is not a typo. The passenger side had no issues, the driver side needed a tiewrap to hold the inner fender forward against the cooling line. Check the wheel order picture for width and...

    Vendor Rear Adjustable Camber Bushings for Model S/X Group Buy

    Final on wheels/tires. Very neutral handling and higher lateral Gs (according to Dragy) after these changes: UP adjustable rear camber arms Michelin Sport 4S all around, 265/35 front and 285/30 rear Car factory height set to always low except my driveway, alignment done on low after up down...

    Vendor Rear Adjustable Camber Bushings for Model S/X Group Buy

    IMHO, align with car on low and try for 0.9 degrees camber and 0.1 toe. Add a little toe if the rear wanders too much, but mine tracks well. BTW, running 285/30 on the rear, YMMV. Alignment is slightly off with high suspension settings, but that is on dirt roads so I don't care.

    What alignment specs will you use?

    Anyone install this Unplugged Performance rear camber arm?

    Any chance you can post your alignment specs? I am currently running Lolachampcar specs which are pretty good, but still a little understeer at the limit. What alignment shop you recommend in the SF Bay area? Fremont alignment gets it done, but for $125 and is not exact, just "within specs".

    Waymo Says Its Self-Driving Tech Is More Advanced Than Tesla FSD, Others

    Once you buy FSD is there any location it gets disabled? I have used mine in almost all the lower 48 and Canada, never a problem with FSD being available except for a few odd weather conditions.

    Ride quality on 19’s vs 21 inch wheels

    No differnce in feel of the brakes other than a little firmer due to brake lines. I did front and rear but not large front rotors, easy swap. Never any fade even on the track, but I am on the stock Michelin's. Stock calipers, used RB pads and upgraded brake fluid. ROTOR, PAD, BRAKE KIT -...

    Ride quality on 19’s vs 21 inch wheels

    Another ride improvement is to lower unsprung weight, forged after market wheels and two piece rotors made a noticeable change for me. This is not a huge change, but may be enough. Kinda expensive though, if ride is all you want, looks and acceleration are better.

    Tell me where to meet you in your Waymo car and I will bring my Tesla, then we can compare with an interstate drive.

    Tire inflation monitor glitch

    Metal objects should have no effect. Wheels and moving the weights around does not effect them. More likely the tire change jarred something. I have seen my sensors change when tires are changed.

    3 Unintended Acceleration events when parking my Tesla S P in my garage.

    When posting unintended acceleration, please post if you have creep mode enabled. Pretty hard to get a complete picture without that information.

    Negative Camber in the Rear and Expensive Tires

    Anyone try to make adjustment links with aircraft quality Heim joints and threaded sleeve? Wondering if this could be an inexpensive solution, but needs research on sizing.

    Upgraded anti-sway bar?

    Sorry for the late reply. Yes, some rubbing until I got the offset right and tie wrapped the left (driver side) inner fender. There is a cooler in exactly the right place to put a tie wrap which gives just enough clearance. YMMV, but I rarely get a rub. Right (passenger) side was NP.

    Upgraded anti-sway bar?

    If you are going to push the handling I suggest getting the wheel alignment done right. You may have to buy some aftermarket parts as not all cars will get to these specs. I wound up putting 265's on the front and playing with tire pressures to get the handling where I wanted. Tesla Model S
