    The quest for wider wheels and tires, 295, 305 and beyond...

    A couple of corvette guys I know did that with A7's on their fronts. I was worried about putting one on a 10.5":rolleyes:.They worked well but I got some 11" now for my rear 315A7's & they fit better + room for more I'd think. 325 or 335 maybe? need to up the front to 315(really 325) minimum

    But it’s an interesting idea. Truck wheels maybe

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    @SK360 that seems odd. I run full camber all the time and have inner wear but not just the corner like that, much more into the tread. that's on my 255 Comp2A all season tires on 18" though . 0 toe on rear and maybe <1/4" in total on front. ~3 rear camber >3front

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

    What needs more clearance in the front? >=305? 295 yoko, or some specific offset? What do you really gain? I’d like 315/335 A7 but that does need some clearance. I just got a pair or 11”x18”+40 Koenig rears for my 315 A7, fit much better than the 10.5 +25, Larison rock hill climb next weekend...

    I was going to post this. To even put GM here seems disingenuous at best. & Ford has 20k chargers / 60k plugs now!? I’ve never seen one, are they at every dealership and some? Is this even true. & are dealerships in places anyone wants to go to charge? None that I’ve seen in CA are

    I got warnings braking for turn 2 after 1 hot lap. At the top of a 2 mile hill climb my fronts are over 1000F

    When is ultra Long Range battery coming?

    this is pure BS. price, availability & stupidity is stopping mass adoption + more stupidity I've had an S since 2012 and a 3 added late '19 too. the 3 can do 600 miles in 8 hours (hauling ass). The S took ~12 hrs to do 600 miles. current charge rates and capacity are close to ideal as long as...

    ..& TTM& 1/4ly TSLA is ramping so fast compared to any of those others...add a few years to that and it would be absolutely unbelievable to most

    All I can think of is that there are signs all over town showing off how much the materials used to run these ICE things costs.

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    @gearchruncher I had some issues when I was running one of my bigger sets (275 Nexen or 295 Hoosiers) - did have a frayed speed sensor but cut and cleanly spliced it. After that I only had a couple of runs where it had problems still but then nothing after that one day of auto x....was a bit...

    The quest for wider wheels and tires, 295, 305 and beyond...

    front is just 295 and fits really nice. I wouldn't have thought the 315 on 10.5"+25 would go under the rear without seeing this picture. No one said anything about the fit so I assume it is ok for ASP? ...I'd probably get a pair of 11" +40 if anyone complains that these poke but they do fit so...

    Fake sounds!!? So That’s a sarcastic ’no nonsense’ I hope I love racing my 3 up hills! Mary hill Performs identical to these with less ‘drama’ & I get music to race to This is a different type of toy. 10% quicker(at least)

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

    Mary HIll Loops Hill Climb last weekend - I took 4th overall, 2 STOHR racecars ran 121 & 123 seconds. 2700 lb Subi ran 133.8 & I did a 135.2 (2nd Sunday run) ..sooo close! pretty sure square 315 or the warmer afternoon would've been enough for 3rd...I even ran a 135.7 on my 5th run!!! @360V...

    One lap at Laguna seca it too much for regular MPP rotors. That’s on street tires. I put these on my rear for a hill climb. Sickly quicker than my 295 squared. Can’t wait for fronts too 🤗

    18" ..my 275 nexen on 10.5 square are fast... during practice my laps were 2 seconds faster than my older A9 295s on a 55 s course. I didn't think they'd be toast after 2 hills, 1 enduro and a couple of 1/2 auto x days. ..they were I guess I was matching SSP Z06's on 315/345 A7s they need...

    ….I didn’t realize you can fit an 18” 315 A7 on a 9.5” wheel! I’m racing a couple of corvettes with that on front and 345 on rear. I think I’m gonna put a 315 at lleast on my koni when the 295 are done and test fitment….I’m on my nexen practicing and matching their best lap times BTW. They are...

    since this is related to most all discussion here ...is tax paid on the 44B sale? (assuming it happens) that is my only issue with any of this. I'd surely be required to pay sales tax on something like that...unless Delaware (Tesla financial base place?) Oregon, Alaska, Montana, NH.

    $17B+ this year + CT ramp faster that expected (what areas weren't shown at Texas!?) also expecting some other vehicle announced soonish (besides the dedicated transport taxi) along with the other 3 vehicles next year. isn't FTM PE already under 50? in my mind it all makes sense. waiting for...

    Qualified? I drove like an ass for over a month and got my score up to 100 for over a week....then we had an autocross weekend and it dropped again. dumb AF. why in track mode is it doing safety score analysis?!

    I was thinking I would need to do that until I started selling puts and covered taxes + added back all shares sold. selling shares is not really needed it seems. just patience & timing

    this is my Nexen 275 tires on a new set of the 10.5" 18 Konigs. the front has MPP uppers and upper shock mount nuts(?not hats) tightened under load to try and get the most camber I could.

    all I see is an easy $1800 SP...but that's too low for what is actually going to happen. Crazy 🥳 glad I learned about selling put options and buying LEAPS. & shorter termed calls last week fantastic 2 months so far...first one of the year was a bit of a teacher ;p

    Nine-year-old Tesla with the original battery, yes you should buy a used one

    Ya, I'm 250 miles from any service and they won't send a ranger here it seems? My 12V died so I put in a Ohmmu battery but it gets drawn down pretty quick and isn't being charged. Tesla says to tow it & they also won't look at it without a Tesla Pb 12V in it (I've spent months of time taking...

    Ya, the A7 are only 25.3” diameter and would probably work on your setup. nexen 275 only had issues in the front when I was at Laguna seca. Maybe because I had no front sway bar though? …They rolled my fenders a bit for me ;). 315A7 is my goal. Maybe Walmart fender bits and a saw. Gonna hurt to...

    I think my rear camber is about -3. I did all of my own alignment and had it checked once. It was -3,5/3.8 and I took a tiny bit out. Coils may have settled since I had the measurements done? Hub center to fender is 14 1/2”….this is the only picture I have on me. Car has 235RE on enkei...
