    Seattle Area SCCA-Like Tesla Events

    Alright.... I'm down to give this a shot. I can't make it on the 15th but it looks like the next one after that is on the 30th (on the AutoX schedule but not the track schedule). But I'm only going if there'll be other Teslas there. I too have heard the stories of this red Model 3 at Evergreen...

    Thanks for checking and sharing that info. Well.... looks like Tesla Corsa XX - Ridge Motorsport Park is still a few years away.

    Seattle Area SCCA-Like Tesla Events

    There's that big expansion of the Pacific Innovation Center and Motorsports Park project happening right now at PR. Maybe that's where new SCs would go? A SC right there at PR would be HUGE! It would make PR just as capable for Teslas as some of the tracks in Cali are. Now all we need is for...

    Formula E - Vancouver, BC

    This year Formula E will be holding it's first event in Vancouver, BC on July 2nd, 2022: 2022 VANCOUVER E-PRIX This is reminiscent of the day back in the 1990's and early 2000's when the Indy CART series ran a city circuit in downtown Vancouver, 'cept this time they'll be electric.

    Seattle Area SCCA-Like Tesla Events

    The days of autoX events at Boeing Everett are long gone. We lost access about 11 years ago, if I recall correctly. BEAC uses Sanderson Field exclusively now as do a lot of car clubs in the area. It probably brings in more income to the port of Shelton during the warm months than the planes...

    Seattle Area SCCA-Like Tesla Events

    I'm a local autoX-er / occasional HPDE participant in the Seattle area. You're absolutely right that there are very little involvement from Teslas when it comes to autoX and HPDEs, unlike CA where there's a lot of Tesla involvement. I think the main reason why The Ridge and Pacific Raceways...

    Snow storm

    Byron did a 'How long can a Tesla keep you warm in winter?' test about a year ago. Definitely worth the time to watch. It should put to rest anyone's concerns.

    Alaska Highway Superchargers

    More or less a hunch. There would have to be enough vehicles willing & capable to travel that route before Tesla would invest in expanding to connect the lower 48 to AK. While the S3XY line up can make that drive today, they would probably be limited to only 4 months for S & 3 and maybe 6...

    Alaska Highway Superchargers

    The earliest Tesla will probably have this section of the SC network built out will probably be a year after the Cybertruck is in full volume production, maybe summer 2024.

    Supercharger - Tumwater, WA

    At times when there are a lot of ICE cars refueling and semis going in and out, that location is a hot mess.

    Scan My Tesla for Track Duty

    Yeah, tons of parameters, currently 104 for the Model 3 to be exact. I've never tried logging more than 14 at a time but I've noticed about an average of 15 millisecond refresh rate. scan my tesla

    Scan My Tesla for Track Duty

    While the Track Mode display and other data loggers work well, I found Scan My Tesla worked really well not for just data logging the parameters that you could only get from an ODB2 connection but also as telemetry. I mounted an 8" tablet to an adjustable free floating mount that doesn't get in...

    2021 Tesla Model 2, 20" Uberturbines

    I'm more than happy to sell them to anyone. I just would like the convenience of a local pickup and not have to deal with the complexities of shipping. C'mon up to Seattle, we're at the time of year where you can almost step outside without getting wet. ;)

    2021 Tesla Model 2, 20" Uberturbines

    Yep, thanks for the suggestion. I've been a member of SEVA in the past, back in the days when Don Crabtree and Dave Cloud were still with us. I'm currently not a member. Looking for a shop with a history of automotive tuning that's specific to EVs now or a new shop that is made up of EV...

    2021 Tesla Model 2, 20" Uberturbines

    I wish I could correct the title of this post as people may not want wheels off of the "super-rare" Model 2. If anyone knows, I'd appreciate it if you could tell me. For that typo; dropping the price to $2800.

    2021 Uberturbine Wheel Weight

    Yeah, this was the lightest of the 2 wheels I weighed (the other one was 39 lbs). The tire is pretty much at the end of its usable life a lot of rubber had been spent. When new its 22 lbs according to Tirerack. I don't know if a tire like this can lose 5-6 lbs of rubber, I'd have to weigh it...

    2021 Uberturbine Wheel Weight

    The other day I wanted to compare the weight of the 2021 M3P 20" Uberturbine wheel & tire to the summer wheels that I use on my 2018 LR RWD. Uberturbines: - Stock wheel w/ 2021 M3P, 20x9, +35mm ET - Stock 235/35-20 Pirelli P-Zero - 690 miles - Condition: New - No wheel lug cap - Weight: 54.5...

    dragy 10Hz GPS - Mounting Location On Model 3 ?

    Just to FYI. Wherever you decide to mount it, DO NOT use the adhesive steel plates that come with it on the dash board. Only after 2 days I noticed that something didn't look right. I removed the plate and attempted to clean it up with a clean microfiber and some interior cleaner. I...

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    I'm noticing the the octovalue is one noisy bit of Tesla tech. Whenever my car turns on it seems like it starts up w/ a lot of whirling and gurgling that I can even hear inside the car while driving down the street at times. Works really well though. It seems to warm up the cabin really...

    New Service Center - Seattle (SoDo)

    What I kinda like about this location is that it's across the street from The Shop. I find it interesting that the Tesla brand is now within sight of the membership and visitors.

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    Something I noticed today when driving down the same route twice; once in my 2018 and later in the 2021. The 2021 is definitely quieter. Seems like the major difference in noise comes from the tires and/or through the floor of the cabin. Stock wheels and tires on both: 2018: 18" w/ Michelin...

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    This might have been mentioned earlier in the thread, disregard if it has: I've been watching Bjorn Nyland's episodes with the 2021 AWD he's testing and he briefly mentioned that the aftermarket (and I assume the ones currently available from Tesla) sun shades don't fit the 2021. I took the...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Got my M3P today. Location: Seattle area Ordered on 10/25 Notified by Tesla on 12/15 Picked up at Renton SC on 12/19 Pickup went relatively smooth. Lots of people picking up today. Now all I need is some dry weather (says the guy from Seattle at the start of winter :( ).

    Are wheel locks worth it? And if so, which are best?

    Tesla's are targeted for their wheels: Tesla owners warned tires and rims are high-value theft targets: LAPD.

    Roof Tinting Yay or Nay?

    I say nah to roof tint. I got the roof screens (https://www.amazon.com/Sunshade-Overhead-Custom-Fit-Sunshades-Compatible/dp/B07Q9BC8K7/ref=sr_1_3_sspa) and they worked fantastic during the summer. They definitely made it cooler in the car with them than without. It also blocked a lot of the...

    Seattle P3D: all-season tires vs winter wheel + tire package

    ChadS, how much clearance are you getting between the inside of the wheel and the rear caliper. I like the idea of getting 18's for winter tires, just wondering if the TSportline wheels and other 18" makes have better clearance than the stock 18's. Thanks.

    Sleeping in the car for 2 weeks?

    I think Wade Anderson from Tesla Social did that when he went to Alaska in his Model 3. You can review his videos and count, it may not have been continuous but while he was north of the US boarder he was pretty much living out of his car for about 2 or more weeks it seems...

    Track report - I need a bigger battery, cooling and brakes were fine

    Nice write-up. I was just curious if you happened to know or ask anyone at the Ridge if they would be reinstalling their Destination Chargers that they had before the new construction. I recalled they were setup for 12kW before they took them down.

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    Seems like when Mountain Pass Performance dyno-ed the Model Y Performance they got more power (502 WHP) than the non-refresh Model 3 (480 WHP). Could the refreshed TM3 Performance be getting the same power bump?

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    Something that I haven't seen covered by the reviews out of China is can the rear trunk now be opened AND closed from the MCU and the phone app? I would think that it would but I haven't seen any verification of it yet.
  43. Drivesolo

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    As far as relevant hardware components that can't be affected by OTA updates or easily purchased and put on by most owners; probably not. Maybe some new stuff by the end of 2021 again.

    That would indicate a wider tire also. Maybe that's where there .1 sec improvement comes from?

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    The current speculation is that the US P3D Refresh will now come with Pirelli P-Zeros, which is the max performance summer tire that is comparable to the Michelin Pilot Sports 4Ss. According to Tirerack's comparison from 2017, the 4S is the better (grippier) tire...
