    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    It was actually a full plate replacement. The welcome party was at a local kart track Friday night. I saw the plate, and the owner of the Kart track let me borrow it for the event... After Saturday's evening competition and the rush to get off site, I actually forgot to swap my lic plate back...

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    Thanks, I appreciate it. 😁 You are correct, that is 100% bench racing, and you do not have all the facts, thus your opinion on performance/pax etc on this particular event is void. BS and FS got dry runs all weekend. I was about to run and the sky opened up with many lightening delays. We sat...

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    Today, I won my third Pro Solo this season in S4 using the AS4 pax. Sorry for f'ing it up, but there is no way these toasters are getting kicked back to BS... 🤗😂🤣 Ended up 9th in the Super Challenge. Tires are near end of life, and will be now used to local events. Gotta get another set and...

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    Umm, ok? It wasn't braggadocio, it was the fact that they moved the car, so I was going to do a full faith effort in attempt to win. Come the second week of September, I will know that I did everything in my power to put the Tesla on top of A Street. If I do not do that well, and I feel that...

    I like how you thumbed down my post. You are a long time SCCA hater, we get it. Why bother even respond to something you hate? #doitbetter

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    oh, that is just dumb. Running a stock class car in a mod class is a waste of time/resources. SCCA classing is relatively simple, if a class does not make numbers, it gets cut. I lost my shirt campaigning a fwd car in SM for 10 years, Of course, literally a few months after I sold that car, SMF...

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    nah, I am good with AS. EVX is appealing to me, but I don't want to ruin the car for daily use. I know, people are going to say "my EVX car works fine daily", but I am sure we have radically different daily requirements/conditions. I already have to swap out shocks and a swaybar for winter use...

    Good job Mr. Ron! 🥰 That video was excellent, almost looked like it was sped up! :eek:

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    I agree with both of you... 🤡 😂🤣 Although I ran on re71rs (my rain setup is not here yet) both my and Jeremy's M3P's were less affected by the rainy slick sealed asphalt vs every other competitors car setup. You had to have some patience on entry, but if you nailed that you could floor it and...

    Would a Performance with 18" aero wheels (e.g. FastEV EV01+) and LRR tires be like a LR in economy and range?

    WOW!!! you do 500 miles A DAY?!? :eek: :eek: :eek: Wheels are Max Forged wheels. Here is their IG: https://www.instagram.com/maxforgedwheels/

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    Thanks. I won S4 by .024 over Josh Luster in Aaron Shoe's SM/XA Evo. In 3rd place was Jeremy in his stock M3P (save for a set of my SCCA street class legal 19's/re71rs). Jeremy was in the challenge and coned it away getting 6th iirc. That was my first time in the challenge with the new format...

    DWS06+ or PS4AS or FK460

    Erm... compared to my RE71RS, the PSAS4 make no noise at all. If they do make noise, it is imperceptible to me with the radio at even a low volume. Heck, my shocks make more noise then the PSAS4... IMHO, the PSAS4 is a much better performing tire on the porky Tesla compared to the DWS06+ in all...

    Correct, the only national event in Jersey is the Pro.

    DWS06+ or PS4AS or FK460

    you want a 265 width tire that is good in snow? :eek: I have run DWS06+ and PSAS4 on this car, in multiple widths. I absolutely love the PSAS4 for all season use, mainly because i have a set of dedicated snow tires. I have a set of 235/45-18 currently that i use in the winter months, but swap...

    I have forged Aero wheels on my 2022 M3P and I am getting quite good range, even despite the cold temps currently. #sleeper 😎

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    Lots of suspension movement. I kept ripping front mud flaps off the car at events. they would hit the ground and I would hear a "pop" then a clacking when they were hitting the side of the car... so i put them on quick release clips and remove them at each event now. 🤓

    Still better then SS. I have to find the $, but i plan on doing a decent AS effort in 2024. 🤗

    No, the factory 18" Aero wheels from Tesla will not work on the P brakes without significant modification. The Performance Aeros are forged wheels that have the P brake hub step and the barrel is made to clear the P e-brake motor. 😎
