    Factory Model 3 Performance Spoiler

    Hey Ill sell mine off my 2020 MYP. Its been replaced by Tesla twice now so this 1 is new. I was thinking of going with a slightly bigger one aftermarket. Id have to peel it off so there would prob be some residue from the double tape but email if you want it. Ill do $270 and ship it free...

    Best hitch rack for 2021 MYLR to hold my e-bikes and current weight limit?

    same. its way higher than i thought. The aero behind the car is very important and putting a bike back there really impacts it. Cant imagine how bad sticking it on the roof would be though. As always, the aero stuff gets far worse over about 40 mph so it would depend on your speeds. That...

    DIY Trailer Harness for Model Y

    ? You would use it in the scenario that you wanted to install your own trailer hitch/harness and save a boatload of $. That is super nice ! So it plugs right into the existing tesla harness for the trailer hitch ? $63 ? I paid $100 for the Tekonsha version -...

    Best hitch rack for 2021 MYLR to hold my e-bikes and current weight limit?

    Prob close to 100 lbs. you don’t need to keep worrying about tongue weight discussion. I’ve put my kx250f on it hanging 3’ off the back using a 120 lb dual mx rack. The bike weighs 250#. There was zero issue. Also jumped my 190 # lard ass on the rack at the same time just to see how far...

    Tesla Atlanta

    How bout anyone that would install coil overs and align it? I’m thinking of some MPP coils and 1” drop to lose the unsightly fender gap and also get some range back

    Questions about Ordering Model Y Tow Hitch

    Yeah I’m pretty sure U lose AP once u plug into the wire harness. But for just a bike rack or cargo rack that doesn’t require plug in then it wouldn’t disable AP

    21” Uberturbine wheels

    Yeah and I think you can get smaller wheels with bigger sidewalls to keep similar rolling diameter. It doesn’t look as good imo but fender gap should be same added benefit you can shave 10-15 lbs of rotating mass per wheel, then gain range and performance by dropping down on wheel size and...

    21” Uberturbine wheels

    Hmm really ? I’ve seen a few performance with the smaller wheels and it accented the fender gap issue .. maybe it was just the proportions of tire/rim. If anything it needs 22-23” Rims or lowered 1”

    21” Uberturbine wheels

    You can easily touch up the scrapes - light sanding with fine paper and there is a spray paint that supposedly matches it perfect. Anyone know what the paint is ? I need it also. The rims stick out past the tire which makes them easy to rash. I love the look of the 21s. Whole pt of the...

    Constantly rattling door at highway speeds - can you help me diagnose ahead of SC visit? [video]

    The service center can’t tie their own shoes they definitely won’t solve this. I doubt they would do more than shove a folded paper between the panel and door frame and waste a few hours of your time. u better get good at fixing minor stuff like this. Popping the door panel off is pretty...

    Questions about Ordering Model Y Tow Hitch

    Does that phone holder charge too? If so how ? love your car. That wrap looks really nice. Very aggressive as it should be with a speed demon like this :)

    Switching from Jeep Grand Cherokee to Model Y Performance - Ground clearance issues?

    U are definitely in the sweet spot then. I wish model Y was true SUV but without decent towing range it just isn’t. Really the only place it falls way short. The Rivian will be interesting as it will have a 180kwh battery, more than 2x model Y. If so that vehicle might actually be able to...

    Questions about Ordering Model Y Tow Hitch

    Agree. If you can wait and if you don’t mind the extra cost, factory is way to go if u don’t mind losing AP towing

    Switching from Jeep Grand Cherokee to Model Y Performance - Ground clearance issues?

    Any other ice car would feel lethargic. Maybe not the trackhawk but I drove a Audi SQ7 which I was told was a rocket ship. 😌 felt like it took ages to downshift. Who the hell has to downshift ? 😂 seriously there was no comparison and that’s a 500 hp $100k killer and the MYP was much quicker...

    Track mode Model Y performance

    Yeah they would definitely need a supercharger at the track. My DE’s were 15 min sessions which seemed like an hour lol. I bet you could do 2-3 of those. There were plenty of SUV like XM5’s just no convertibles allowed. Tesla would be fine (but would bruise some supercar driver ego’s)

    Switching from Jeep Grand Cherokee to Model Y Performance - Ground clearance issues?

    You are in the right place. I’ve got both a 16 jcg overland and a 20 myp. the clearance is low in the myp but I’ve never taken it in snow. If you think myp can tow 3600 be careful. In winter it wouldn’t make 100 miles unless you went 35 mph. I love the myp and it makes everything pale in...

    First Test Drive - Initial Impressions And Buying Thoughts

    Cool And I think u will like it. 75 miles per day is easy, you might wish your commute was longer. I don’t think charging on a 120 circuit would net much in winter maybe 1-2 miles per hour depending on how cold but just install a wall charger at home on a 60amp circuit and you will be more...

    Track mode Model Y performance

    Everyone buys cars for different reasons .. some want to granny drive in the slow lane at 40 to see if they can actually get the epa claimed range and some want to track it. I want to track it because it’s so damn fast and fun, it needs a track mode! when you switch from 21 to 20 inch doesn’t...

    I put on a hitch rack yesterday and put a dirtbike on it . The rack weighs 100 and bike 250 about 2’ back off the hitch the car did fine but rear suspension was a little compressed. Avg 450 wh/mi not as bad that’s 150 range. All back roads 45-55 mph. Not sure in hwy at 65 how it would...

    Why did Tesla remove option to disable regenerative braking?

    I hated it at 1st. now I’m addicted. I love 1 pedal driving but takes a little coordination. Why the hell should u use brakes what a waste of potential energy. The car needs every bit to help range and this is a freebie. It’s possible to drive as smooth but takes coordination

    My Model Y smells, does it happen to yours?

    y’all are soft..just some sarcasm I’m sure the guy is very capable but in the time it’s taken to bs on here he could of just done it 10 times by now. Hate to see people waste $ And settle down with the thumbs down it’s really upsetting to me 😂

    My Model Y smells, does it happen to yours?

    It was an attempt to motivate you to get off ur ass…It’s not hard. Just go do it already. The panel comes right off this is not rocket science and you will need to repeatedly do this as the ac is very effective and draws a lot moisture out of humid air which runs back into your oem paper...

    2020 Model Y LR AWD For Sale

    Have you considered trade in ? Depending on local tax laws you could take advantage of significant tax off set. For instance if you trade in at 60k and buy at 70k you will only pay car sales tax on 10k, roughly $660. Versus buying without trade in at 70k, you pay $4600 or so in tax. Neat...

    Blog Report: Ford Doubles Production Target for F-150 Lightning

    F150 would need to triple its range before it’s usable. CT would need to show any signs of reality before it’s taken seriously. what about Rivian or hummer ? Somehow rivian screwed up the front end but otherwise looks semi promising. Haven’t looked into hummer much yet, not a Gm fan

    My Model Y smells, does it happen to yours?

    If the process takes you more than 10 min you are incompetent .. look on youtube, buy the charcoal filters and evap cleaner. Its really easy theres no need to pay anyone to do this. and you better get good at it, you will need to do this every 9 months or so.

    Blog Report: Ford Doubles Production Target for F-150 Lightning

    not sure if you have space but for it but for local towing runs why not just get a small utlilty trailer ? Any telsa or (ICE car for that matter) + a harbor freight 4/8 is perfect for local towing < 100 miles. its actually much better for hauling all that stuff and much more, but you gotta be...

    Tesla Rear Emblem Change

    Mine (2020) had holes under the emblem so I had to put it back on. Love the Tesla lettering but I cant without expensive body work. Not worth it. Wish they would of put holes under the stupid spoiler instead, thats what keeps falling off.

    Blog Report: Ford Doubles Production Target for F-150 Lightning

    definitely not what ive seen F150 used for and definitely not what id use f150 for. With a EPA (?? bs) range of 230 its real world range would be maybe 175, 150 maybe in winter. Towing you can divide by 3 summer and 4 winter. This becomes worthless for towing. if you dont want to tow in it...

    Model Y vs Mustang Mach E

    Cheap cars are assembled with a million plastic push pins, yes what is your point ? These aren’t cheap cars lol. Yes I’ve taken many cars apart. Go look at how Porsche Audi BMW MB assemble body structure and interior. They do it right. Tesla is assembling their cars like a kellogs toy in...

    230 mi / 300 mi range and it’s going to tow 10,000 lbs ?!?!?!! will it’s towing range at that weight be more than a few miles lol ? They can’t be serious.

    Model Y vs Mustang Mach E

    How well it was put together ? Seriously? have you taken one apart to put in any mods ? It’s a million plastic push pins lol. You can take it apart with your fingernail. but I still think it’s better than Ford’s first real EV to challenge Tesla so I would stick with but watch the others...

    Resale value, and replacement ICE

    The Audi dealer is offering me 26k on wife’s jeep or 62k on myp and not really budging on Q7 over price at 72k moderately equipped .. It’s funny they keep saying I’m asking too much for my trades but they are way over Msrp on the Q7 .. waiting game I guess. Hate dealing with sh1tball car...

    Resale value, and replacement ICE

    Model Y vs Mustang Mach E

    I meant more that this is Ford’s first EV. Tesla has a lot more experience so maybe smart to let Ford work out the bugs for a year or so. That car is going to get a whole lot better quickly and hopefully becomes a viable alternative to Tesla (to force Tesla to up their game)

    Heated steering wheel?

    Curious also. How could you install heated wheel if it wasn’t an option? How would you turn it on and off ? Plenty of nice aftermarket carbon and or leather wheels out there that are heated

    Resale value, and replacement ICE

    Man the jeep has been spot on tho. I do fear it’s long term like +7 years ownership experience as that’s when it would come off the extended b2b warranty I bought. It has a very $$ quadra track all wheel drive system with all sorts Of air suspension to raise and lower which is very expensive...

    Model Y vs Mustang Mach E

    To the person considering Mach E — go drive one. Keep it overnight, run the battery hard and charge to full. let us know, I’m really intrigued by it but very skeptical getting into a 1st run vehicle as so much will improve within the next few years on it. I have my personal doubts it would...
