    NHRA / IHRA rules for Plaid/Plaid+

    This is great news... but it will need to be revised again soon. If the roadster ever makes it out or if Dodge follows through on its "eMuscle car" I think 8 second range is where many of these performance electric vehicles will end up. There really isn't a tradeoff to having a higher power...

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    Guys... the Ford Raptor has a top speed of 107mph Also, Ford realized it needs to develop its own EVs if it wants to survive. The Rivian play was their "easy button" to not distract the main Ford team from their regular ICE work... Then they realized "whoops, we should probably do that too"...

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    Agreed. For my use case, I will tow maybe 2x per year at most so that won’t be a huge factor.

    New Edmunds' slander. Mach-E GT vs MYP.

    The review seemed fine to me... They highlighted some major reasons that the Tesla was better. Every writer has some artistic liberty as long as it is his perception and not blatantly false. MYP ride is kinda rough... really needs air suspension (this is my opinion) Some people don't like...

    Mason mother of 5 dead in Clermont County crash (Model Y crash)

    So the article states at the very end, tesla's have 1 fire for every 205 Million vehicle miles traveled. That statistic doesn't mean anything to the average person. So looking at the tesla report they referenced, it also states ICE vehicles have a fire every 19 Million vehicle miles traveled...

    Wall Charger Installation

    100% agree.. Any certified electrician can do the work. It is not hard.

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    I think you made a great point, actual hardcore off roading is only for a very small section of the population. The "image" of hardcore off roading appeals to a much larger audience. Glad to hear your experience with the Model Y, i too love my model 3 and would not go back to ICE. With all...

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    In my original post, the price difference is only around $4k given the tax credit. I was surprised by it being so close
  9. 1.21GW

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    I think this thread has helped me figure out new ways to be conflicted... lol Best thing on my side is time. With Tesla continuing to raise prices and Rivian's unclear production timeline... I think this will need to be re-visited 6-12 months from now for better clarity. I miss the days...

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    As others have said... the R1S will be thirsty! Also with the 11kW on board charger it maxes out at 25 miles or range per hour vs my model 3 doing 45 with that same power. It would effectively be like driving 2 model 3s in terms of power usage. But if i was in the market for a range rover...

    My great great grandchild will inherit my reservation

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    Lol, my wife would leave me if I got her the cybertruck

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    For me, the extra room isn’t that relevant, it’s nice to have but Y is sufficient and R1S is a bonus

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    :cool:🤯
  15. 1.21GW

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    yeah, that is a good point, i only put my reservation in a little while ago. I am towards the end of the line. With all the other companies coming out with EVs soon maybe there will be another interesting option. The downside I see from many of the legacy OEMs is that they limit the...
  16. 1.21GW

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    This is a good way of putting it. The price difference was a lot smaller than I thought because Rivian still gets the tax credit, that's why I even started considering the R1S. If congress changes the tax credit rules.. that would throw another wrench into the works. I have ruled out the CT...

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    The supercharger network is a huge factor, It may be one of the biggest deciding factors. I love the reliability and convenience of road tripping in my Model 3
  18. 1.21GW

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    Yeah, i have FSD Beta on my Model 3, not sure I'd spend the money on it again. However, It's great when it's not actively trying to murder me.
  19. 1.21GW

    Can you use key card only long term?

    yeah, no issues with that. I also agree purchasing the keyfob would be a great idea.

    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    So I was planning to get a Model Y Performance for my wife, then I went down the rabbit hole of looking into Rivian R1S. Now I am conflicted.. The reviews of the R1T are very good so far Model Y Performance Smaller / easier to park / less storage runs 11's in the 1/4 More efficient than...

    White Interior worth $2k or not?

    Yes, white looks best #facts

    Purchasing a Model S Performance from CarMax

    Have you considered the new Long range model S? it is nearly the same acceleration as a 2020 performance (slightly slower 0-60, but 1/4mile trap speed is much higher). the new Long range would be faster at highway speeds. Only issue would be timing.

    Exact benefit of 19" wheels

    This is exactly why Tesla has a lot of engineers :) However, the simple answer is that most aftermarket wheels/tires will increase the road load in an effort to extract the best traction. The tire companies and automotive OEMs don't offer enough information for us to do the exact calculations...

    Exact benefit of 19" wheels

    The difference between the wheels should be pretty similar for the LR version as well. I’m not sure of the wheel widths on the LR though. Are they narrower than the Plaid?
  25. 1.21GW

    Exact benefit of 19" wheels

    This is a bit of a technical deep dive (warning) but if you are interested to know how much efficiency and power difference there is between 19" Tempest and 21" Arachnids, this will show it.

    Technical deep dive: Plaid Torque curve

    Thanks! i 100% agree, not trying to beg for subscribers, I'll probably never get to the level to make anything off of these videos so I'm not quitting my day job. :cool: I just figured this was the right audience that shares my interest in the technical details, I found it quite fun to discover...

    Technical deep dive: Plaid Torque curve

    I created a video that goes into depth about the Plaid torque curve and shows how it compares to the Dodge Demon and C8 Corvette
  29. 1.21GW

    Will the Plaid exceed 200mph?

    Tire limits are certainly one of the limiting factors. I also think Aerodynamics may have a decent impact as well. It would be interesting to see what speed this car would be drag limited….
  30. 1.21GW

    Will the Plaid exceed 200mph?

    I could see Elon doing something like this as a surprise. Seems like the Powertrain is capable but Aero, tires, etc… is still TBD

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    0-60: 4.2 --> 3.7 1/4 mile: 12.3 -->11.8 I think there are many videos and results in this thread that can show details

    Winter Weather [question about model 3 ownership in cold climates]

    I'm in Michigan. car works great. Get winter tires for improved "greatness" I don't change settings, lube anything, etc.. Just take it through a touchless carwash to clean off salt.

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    I have 19s and my best so far is 11.82 @117.92 I shared a video a while back on this. To me, i think there are more factors than just the wheels that cause that gap.

    Finally hit the 1/4 mile with my 21P

    It won’t help anything. If you are having some trouble accelerating, just make sure you turn off the obstacle aware acceleration setting, I have had that slow me up occasionally. It’s probably not your issue, but sharing just in case.
  37. 1.21GW

    Finally hit the 1/4 mile with my 21P

    the 60ft is really where the Performance version gets ahead of the LR + Boost models. I am running 1.91 60ft times, I would love some 1.7s The Plaid model S is in the 1.5x range, so I don’t expect you’ll see that without a new powertrain upgrade

    Master Thread: Model 3s on the Track / drag strip- Videos, Discussion, Setup, Etc

    Makes sense, also I did not go back to the first post in the thread as my post was merged into this one. Also, could I make a request? If we are going to do master threads, can we have a separation of "Track racing" and "drag racing" videos? i.e. two different master threads. They have...

    Master Thread: Model 3s on the Track / drag strip- Videos, Discussion, Setup, Etc

    Does anyone else have some Model 3+ Acceleration boost drag strip videos? I think my times are right in the middle of the other ones I have been able to find.

    EZ Pass problems

    I just throw mine on the dash when I’m going through the tolls, it has been fine for a number of years. I don’t use it that often though. I have never heard of mounting them on the outside of the car..
  43. 1.21GW

    Master Thread: Model 3s on the Track / drag strip- Videos, Discussion, Setup, Etc

    I took my model 3 out to the drag strip just for fun

    What do you think of the uberturbine wheels on the M3P?

    I think they look great

    Best Song for Premium Audio?

    Of course there won't be a "right" answer. This was meant for people to share their opinion and maybe find something that interests them. Thanks for your thoughts, maybe you should f-stop reading this thread then.
  46. 1.21GW

    When will you upgrade?

    I’m waiting for air suspension and the 4680 cells in the Model Y. I think a bit more range, smoother ride, and possibly some interior noise reduction would really help the Model Y. Although they aren’t having trouble selling them as is, so Tesla isn’t under any pressure to upgrade immediately
  47. 1.21GW

    When will you upgrade?

    I agree that purchasing FSD is a major factor preventing me from upgrading. They depreciate the software that isn’t even available yet.
  48. 1.21GW

    When will you upgrade?

    For many of the early Model 3 owners, it is getting close to 3 years of ownership and If you are like me, you begin to think about “What’s next?” This is the first car I have owned that I am struggling to find something I would want more at this moment. What would convince you to trade in your...
