    Model 3 windshield shade that won't bake senors?

    Sorry for the delayed response to your posts. At 77, my wife and I have long-ago reached an understanding that we are mutually impossible to buy gifts for, for the exact reasons you both have mentioned. But taking care of our own gifts usually works out so everyone is happy. My sunshade order...

    Model 3 windshield shade that won't bake senors?

    Thanks so much!! Your covercraft shade has a notch at the top so it fits around the sensor cover, Not behind it. Perfect! I will order one for Father's day.

    Model 3 windshield shade that won't bake senors?

    I am looking for a windshield sunshade for my 2020 M3P. So far, they all seem to extend UNDER the black plastic cover ahead of the rear view mirror. That seems to form a solar oven that will bake all of the expensive Tesla sensors like 3 cameras, rain sensor. Etc. Do any of these shades have a...

    Quick Mount for Valentine V1gen2 in 2020 Model 3

    A story about how to install a V1G2 in a 2020 Tesla Model 3, revised since last shown in this thread, has been posted in: https://www.rdforum.org/threads/109329/page-2#post-1611773 and also attached here. Here is the conclusion: "Hard-wiring an RD in a 2020 Tesla Model 3 is more challenging...

    Same thing now happening on my 2020 M3P, even after reset. So I just tune in a local station for news.

    The perfect Model 3 emergency jack?

    Interesting that it was steel, not aluminum that failed. It might be repairable using a thread repair kit like helicoil or permacoil.

    Huge Vibration on Highway then gone? Anyone have info?

    Good to hear that they fixed it!. Was it the hydraulic part of a rear caliper or the electric part, which does the Park function? Interesting that they replaced both sides.. I have had several Model S loaners from the Watertown service center. They were all in chill mode and felt big, heavy...

    Quick Mount for Valentine V1gen2 in 2020 Model 3

    Here is a better photo of the Quick Mount, which has been working very well in my Model 3. A revised version of the story, mostly minor edits, is just about ready to post and I would appreciate any comments, corrections, questions, etc. that might be incorporated. Thanks

    Huge Vibration on Highway then gone? Anyone have info?

    I have seen a similar problem caused by ice frozen to a rim. Perhaps, while your car is sitting in the cold, there is water INSIDE one or more tires that freezes to the tire casing or sound deadening belt, unbalancing the tire(s) until it melts and spreads out?

    Huge Vibration on Highway then gone? Anyone have info?

    It may be the lane departure warning, which shakes the wheel. It feels like you are driving over rumble strips.

    Anyone Buy Modern Spare Tire Kit?

    Good point and solutions! I also carry some wooden blocks, Just in case. With 18" wheels, the problem is even worse because of the taller profile. The Porsche 944 jack is about an inch shorter than the Modern Spare jack, which helps.

    Martian Wheels MW03 - New discussion thread

    Thanks. I thought about that. Or even drilling and tapping the center of the cap so you could use a small nylon screw to yank or jack it out. But, here in New England, I prefer to have the stud and lug nut fully protected. A better but much more expensive solution would be to buy a set of...

    That has not been a problem. I have several 21mm sockets that fit, including a deep impact that is 29.8mm OD. But do recall that others had a problem with thicker wall sockets.

    Martian Wheels MW03 - New discussion thread

    I am also happy with my 18x8.5" MW03 wheels, as posted in the old thread. Even though at 18.9 Lbs, they were a pound overweight (post #271), there was a huge savings compared to the original 20" tires and wheels:. "Original PS4S on 20" gunmetal cast wheels: 53.8-54.2 Lbs each. CC+ on MW03...

    12V outlet switching off again when sleeping since 2019.8.5?

    Preparing to install a new V1 gen2 when it arrives, I did a quick experiment with my 2020 Model 3, 2020.48.35.5 at ~30°F in our garage, plugged into a 30A 220V outlet and charged to 85%.. The following times were measured from "wake up", initiated by opening/closing the driver's door, when all...

    12V Switched Power in Rear (Radar Detector Install)

    Thanks. Valentine is finally ending suspension of their Upgrade program, so my old V1 is on it's way there. I hope to mount the new gen2 from the ceiling of my 2020 as you did and control it from my Android phone. Can the V1 gen2 be set up to work with its display off? .

    Has anyone else had a problem with the plastic tool Martian provides to remove the plastic lug nut covers? It seems too thick to fit and I worry about scratching the wheel. I may make a thinner one out of stainless steel.

    We discussed #1 when my 18" x 8.5" wheels came in a bit heavier than advertised, as discussed in post #278. As mentioned in recent posts, with CrossClimate+ tires, 45 lbs was saved (not including rotational inertia). The installer, usually very critical, was impressed with their lightness and...

    UPDATE on post #437 Martian Wheels MW03 Given a report on CrossClimate+ noise and vibration, I decided to try the new CC+ on MW03 on the car yesterday, rather than waiting until closer to winter. Here are some results that may be of interest: Weight Savings Tires on wheels, including balance...

    Sorry to hear about your bad experience with the CC+. Could it be the balancing? I had mine mounted and balanced at a shop that uses a Hunter GSP9700 Road Force Measurement system. They actually turn the tire on the rim to minimize net radial runout. Thanks for the heads up. I was going to...

    I almost ordered a Dragy, until I looked at the Android app and found that the average rating was only 2.7/5, based on 771 reviews. There were more "1" (poor) ratings than "5"! Some of these bad reviews were because people tried to use it without the Dragy hardware, but still it doesn't look...

    The method we proposed in post#446 does not use GPS at all. Using. only the video camera of a cell phone (or a go-pro if you have one), It video-records the Tesla's speedometer directly. If there is any delay, it would affect both the 0 and 60 MPH timestamps, so would cancel out. But there may...

    Kalim, Thanks for the great idea! I found a free Android app called Timbre that works on mp4 files from the Android camera. It has an Exact Frame view with readout resolution to 1 millisecond.

    Sam1, Thanks. My S10+ phone updates GPS about once per second. Dragy does it 10 times faster (10Hz), so you are right. There is another similar unit that is 20Hz and can be used for drag as well as track events. It is the P-GEAR P-610. Has anyone tried it...

    I would like to do some 0 to 60 runs with the current 20" PS4S to compare with similar runs after I get the lighter CC+ mounted on my lighter MW03 8"x18" wheels later this week. It appears that Track Mode has a lap timer, but I don't see any 0-60 timer. I have an old Android app called "Car...

    So they don't use the MXM4 at all? That certainly explains why there is no EU label for MXM4. There is for the PS4S.
