    Unplugged Performance's new PFC bake pads.

    When I heard Unplugged Performance (UP) recently switched over to PFC for their brake pads, I decided to try out the Street & Track pads. Here's my post Autocross review of them. The CarboTech XP8's I've been running for street & Autocross have been acceptable. They have a ton of initial bite...

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

    Yes, EVA foam. The Schroth harness keeps the body tight but my legs still flop around, hence the pad.

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

    To be clear, I'm currently running mostly UP equipment. Yes, it's my daily driver. Yes, I'll be switching to the XA class next year. Yes, I'm doing the Fontana Champ Tour this weekend. Unfortunately, I'll be running AO52's since I didn't plan on entering the ASP class but that's where I ended up.

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

    Zextraterrestrial, CSP- It's a catch all that requires no better than 200TW tires. It'll be gone this year and we'll move to XA. Thanks for the info about the booster brace, I didn't know that. That bolster gets some funny looks. But it works well! I like my harness to be tight around the...

    Success with Unplugged Performance Coilover Suspension Kit

    I switched from the FUCA's I was running was to the UP FUCA's because I wasn't able to get the camber I needed at the height I needed for the Autocross setup I was after. The UP FUCA's gave that to me. In the rear, I needed adjustable camber arms so I switched. The stock toe arms didn't give...

    MPP Customer Service/Build Thread

    SK360, Pro-tip- ;-) You can run the front speed sensors inboard from the sensor itself (From the hub, just like the rear sensors are routed). Don't run it up the upright and your problem is gone forever. I also drill a small hole by the the top speed sensor clip so I can zip tie the extra wire...

    Jim, 1. The prices of the Unplugged parts are posted on the website. I ended up with FUCA's, both swaybars, camber arms, toe arms, performance coilovers, spring arms, race spec wheels, brake pads. I will tell you that the FUCA's and the rear spring arms are in my opinion, unparalleled...

    Success with Unplugged Performance Coilover Suspension Kit

    My driveway requires a battery height of 120 mm to the flat part of the battery tray near the lifting points. It was easy enough to hit the height. I'm not sure what the range of adjustment is but it seemed pretty large.

    Steering settings for Autocross. 1. Does anybody know exactly what is making the steering feel stiffer with sport setting? 2. What setting lets you "feel" road conditions, bumps, tire slip etc?

    Success with Unplugged Performance Coilover Suspension Kit

    I bought my 2021 Tesla Model 3 Performance with the intension of racing the CST, XA and ASP classes in Autocross. When you watch the leaders of these classes, regardless of the car, you'll notice the front end doesn't lift or squat from acceleration or braking. You'll also notice the cars don't...
