    How does an independent shop reset steering angle after alignment?

    Funny that is one of the most important things an alignment shop should do. That and make sure everything is tightened up afterward.

    My Car is on a Diet.

    For the record, the UP PP car weighed in at 3999lbs with randy in it. I would say an estimate of 600-700lbs of OE components were removed but the full cage and other misc items brought the curb weight back up. All windows are also lexan except the back window.

    How does an independent shop reset steering angle after alignment?

    I track 3-4 times a month and tune my alignment monthly. I'll even make minor adjustments myself with toe plates. Just wanted to boost your confidence in knowing that just about any alignment shop can perform service on your car. Sure, there is a slight risk. I would say you're more than likely...

    Tesla Podium at Global Time Attack *Video*

    I don't have any MPP parts on my car but I can imagine a BMCB could help. How much of a benefit is in question. I'm certainly not against it.

    Tesla Podium at Global Time Attack *Video*

    Surely. I'm pretty damn happy with my setup. Coupled with a good tire I have incredible stopping power without blasting through sets of pads every couple of track days. I have the front big brake kit to thank for that. - Front BFB kit by Unplugged Performance. Carbon 395mm rotors with 6 piston...

    Tesla Podium at Global Time Attack *Video*

    If you look at in that perspective the name fits. There are people coming from around the world to drive at GTA. Canada, Australia, UK, Japan, and parts of Europe.

    Tesla Podium at Global Time Attack *Video*

    Thanks Mash! I would say the combination of driver, grip, and software hack got that well-deserved 1:52.8. Dai is a professional driver who has a lot of seat time at Buttonwillow. Here's the main difference in cars: Dai's Car: Aero: Large Wing, Front Splitter and Side Skirts Tires: Advan...

    Yeah, I really don't know their reasoning behind the name. I'm just a driver in the event. lol

    ya know, I am not sure about that. but you do make a valid point. Perhaps they plan to expand.

    Tesla Podium at Global Time Attack *Video*

    Happy to report my 2nd place podium at Global Time Attack at Buttonwillow. I competed in Enthusiast class which limited my setup but was still a great challenge. My tires were one of the biggest limiting factors. I was restricted to 255 with a minimum 220 tread wear. I also needed to include all...

    VIR Full EV Lap Record - 2:04.9

    Congrats on the PB! I've had my eye on VIR for a tour I'm working on. Superchargers seem to be pretty far from the track. Do they have 50amps available or you have different solution? Do you use Assetto Corsa VIR? I hear the track design is pretty good. By the way, Great tire selection btw. I...

    Unplugged Track Beasts! 3 vs Y

    Yeah, it's pretty impressive. There are only about 10/80+ Teslas I know in sub 2. They are all 3's except this Y.

    Unplugged Track Beasts! 3 vs Y

    Thanks! Gopro Hero 9. although I think it does too good of job stabilizing sometimes. Perhaps I need to turn off camera stabilization to promote the true experience I'm going through. I'm also thinking of mounting a helmet cam.

    Modded up and laying down records!

    Proud to announce another track record! I'm stoked how the car is handling and looking forward to my next track event in two weeks at Buttonwillow.

    Unplugged Track Beasts! 3 vs Y

    Thank you! One thing I want to note on Y speed displayed on screen. It is not precise because it's not taking into account for the smaller UP 18" race wheels. I estimate about 6mph slower than what it actually shows.

    Ways to improve comfort without voiding warranty

    Maybe look into replacing the OEM spring with an Unplugged mild spring. This is proven for a softer ride. Also a cheaper alternative to coilovers. It's VERY unlikely Tesla will void your warranty over springs. To give you some perspective, my car is modded from head to toe and looks like a race...

    Unplugged Track Beasts! 3 vs Y

    I tracked the 3 and Y in one 15min session. The way the Buttonwillow track is configured you have to do a minimum of 3 complete runs to get a hot lap in (out lap, hot lap, cool down). Everything worked out and I managed to get the SUV lap record and a PB in my 3 all in the same session. Later...

    Unplugged P3D vs GT3 RS

    Yeah I was definitely limited at this point. 4th lap in on a 2.5mile track. Unplugged has really incredible cooling solutions they are developing. Can’t wait for them to release those products!

    Unplugged P3D vs GT3 RS

    Given that I do have a heavily modded P3D with Unplugged suspension, BFB brake kit, track wheels with 315's, etc.. ). I think I could hang with a GT3 RS. I have found myself tracking with these guys on multiple occasions. Turns seem to be no issue and I can actually put pressure on them. The...

    MASTER THREAD: Comprehensive Road-Course Modification Guide — Optimizing the 3 for the track

    The modded front fenders and the camber are what gets those 315's to fit. Ride height is 26.5 inches measured from ground to middle of the finder.

    Thank you for your input. I am very aware of the threshold and pre-conditioning process. This time attack start line was 1.5 miles in at phil hill. I know I pushed a little too hard prior to start but I also know I didnt loose much time. Power felt consitant and speed was on par throuout the...

    Setting My Sights on the Track Record. Video and Car Specs!

    Yeah had no problem in the rear. Camber is -2.7 rear, -3.5 front.
  33. fastp3d

    Setting My Sights on the Track Record. Video and Car Specs!

    Yeah with spacers too! The rear is no problem. The front is the issue. You must relocate the speed sensor wire, add a wheel spacer so the trires dont hit the upright, and run modified fenders so there are no tire contact issues.

    Setting My Sights on the Track Record. Video and Car Specs!

    I recently ran Buttonwillow for a personal best at 1:57.3. That was the last session of the day! I'm a close second to the Tesla street record by 1.5secs. I'll have another go in December at Tesla Corsa with more upgrades to come! My car setup: 2018 Tesla Model 3 Performance on Track Mode v2...

    Hi Guys, I just wanted to chime in. I'm on the new update 2020.36.10 with Ohmmu. I did get a message showing that the battery needs to be replaced but the great news is it no longer shows the repeated annoying message on the left where it use to always reside. To me, this is manageable. The...

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    I'm just about to hit 45,000 miles. I Supercharge 95% of the time and to 100% SOC all the time. I've never felt Tesla intentionally throttle me. In fact, I just hit 250kv at an SC yesterday.

    Silverstone Track day in a Model 3 Performance

    Actually you can do this at the track. I do it. Once you make a template it is easy as drag and drop video and cvs file. Then sync timing... Can do it in minutes. But I do agree, there could be better solutions. Video review with TM data straight from the Model 3 screen would be king.
