    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    I hate to see a crash like that.. terrible. What kind of track allows someone to go out and push hard with NO HELMET?? And what kind of human goes out on a track and pushes to over 160mph WITHOUT WEARING A HELMET?? 🤦‍♂️

    FSD Beta 10.12

    A couple of weeks of using FSD in San Francisco, and my main complaint is that at 4-way intersection (where every branch is at 90º for each other), my car is making left turns way too shallow - forcing me to take over every time there's a car to my left waiting for me to complete my turn to go...

    2021+ Model S and Model S Plaid Refresh Issues Thread

    Sadly, this is going to make service quality even worse.. as per usual with Elon, it’s all about optics, and in this case, it’s just about reducing the delay to obtain service - not fix the quality of said service, which is much more important in my opinion! (and don’t get me started on “best...

    How hard is it to remove the rear seats in a 2021+ Model S? Asking for a friend who’s tracking his car soon ;)

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Yep, agreed - I think at some point codes will be merged so even if you’re just using AP and haven’t purchased FSD, the camera will be used to monitor attentiveness. Whether they will remove the need to tug the wheel/yoke once in a while is to be seen, but given there are easy “hacks” out there...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Tesla is already using the interior camera on FSD Beta builds to monitor attentiveness, even on the highway despite not being on a single stack yet. If you look away for too long (several seconds) or have a phone in your hand for just a second or two, the car warns you to "Pay attention to the...

    Driver's Side Rear-view Mirror Vibration

    Most welcome. I’m just glad my shaking mirror was finally replaced after nearly a year of ownership. Real shame on Tesla service for all the pushback they gave me on properly fixing such a basic issue on such an expensive car… PS: the replacement mirror assembly now exhibit a slight squeak upon...

    First time I hear of a sub-9 second Plaid, impressive! How much weight did you shed, relative to stock?

    Just got my car back from service today. This was the 3rd time since last summer it's been at the service center for at least the mirror shaking issue (among many others), excluding the mobile service time I took the tech for an extended drive until he admitted it was still a problem after the...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    To be crystal clear on how the Safety Score works: - Miles driven on AP do count for total miles driven - Any dings for following too closely, hard braking, aggressive turning, or forward collision warnings do NOT count while on AP and for three seconds following AP disengagement by the driver...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I wonder if there’s a way to do this on a Model S since the speed limit is shown on a non-touchscreen instrument cluster display. Is there an FSD-specific online manual that describes the operation of the vehicle when running FSD beta versions?

    Just got FSD beta 10.12.2 (firmware version 2022.12.3.20) from a non-FSD version 2022.12.3.3. 100% safety score over the last 2 weeks and ~300 miles.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Yep, that’s why most humans slow down a fair bit when approaching such crests and drive straight over them (instead of at an angle). I would expect FSD to do a similar thing. I remember how over 6 years ago AP1 used to veer left (sometimes onto oncoming traffic!!) when going over crests, which...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I know this neighborhood very well - it's Bernal Heights in San Francisco, notorious for tight roads and two-lane streets that are barely wide enough for one car to pass at a time. Last time I had FSD Beta in late-2021 it did really poorly there, so it looks like 10.12.1 is a good deal better...

    Driver's Side Rear-view Mirror Vibration

    I got mine looked at (again) but they didn’t bother replacing the assembly, just “tightened” it somehow. Not only did this not fix the issue, but whatever they did now makes the mirror shake even more :rolleyes:

    Track Mode/ Safety Score

    I finally got to test this on my Plaid today. Turning on Track Mode then going for a drive DOES log that trip in Safety Score. Example below:

    Model S Plaid Brakes Are Terrible!

    I don’t think so, as the front rotors on the previous S (365mm) and current 3 Performance (355mm) are smaller than the refresh S/X (380mm).

    Safety Score

    Has anyone noticed their overall safety score jump up in the last week or so? Even though I’m not in the FSD beta anymore, I have Tesla insurance so the safety score appeared for me earlier this month. I wasn’t driving super carefully like I used to in the days prior to getting into the beta...

    Model S Plaid Brakes Are Terrible!

    Yeah I was being facetious.. same calipers and pads on all S models, just a color difference. I wish the Plaid came with stock brakes that matched the crazy power & weight.. I decided to keep my RB rotors for now and ordered G-LOC R12 pads from silentspeed.com - hopefully will get them soon so...

    More utter nonsense from Tesla. You can be parked and crank some music with heavy bass, and the mirror will still shake.

    Model S Plaid Brakes Are Terrible!

    Source? I know Tesla does this in track mode for the Model 3 Performance, but with two independent motors in the rear, they can just use each motor for torque vectoring without having to use rear brakes.

    An honest review of the yoke

    Not hard necessarily, but some people such as myself find it annoying despite "getting used it". I much prefer a round wheel for driving on city streets, despite losing a tiny bit of visibility to the dash screen. And for tracking on a closed circuit, it's an absolute must. Don't take my word...

    Highly unlikely that Tesla would retrofit variable rate steering to existing models, if they even ever build one. If they did, you’d most likely have to buy a new car altogether..
