    2021 Holiday Firmware Release - Predictions and Impressions (after release)

    I want less ui customization features while improving ux. Example- the swipe up and down of music and other icons got lost, in favor of a generic swipe up = climate. Music needs a polishing pass, forever annoyances still live on (eg scroll a list of 400 artists on usb, click on something...

    2021 Holiday Firmware Release - Predictions and Impressions (after release)

    You can think of it the other way around: all things in the ui have a discoverable place with full presence in logical spots: such as tires under service, and some of them may have these cards that are not discoverable but nice to have at a glance or at a swipe while driving. (I’m in the i liked...

    I stopped updating at 2021.4.18 and I have FSD - you maybe should have too

    They have to be very mindful about what are the side effects of cosmetic “skins” and suuuper careful about functional and layout skins- this is a safety issue over self expression. If you hang pink fluffy dice from your rear view mirror and they block your view, regulators understand it’s a...

    ONLY FOR USERS WITH 98/99 NEW FSD

    I smell opportunities for the accessory makers to print that “Student AI Driver” sticker. (“They were so preoccupied with whether they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.”)

    Aaand just got an update from 25.2 to 25.6 . MY AWD, 7seat FSD, enrolled from day 1 and 99 score. Hopefully some of those of you waiting will get it too!

    What happens if I try to charge 2 cars at the same time?

    Yeah, they have had them for years now, I remember it was for destination chargers. It must have been a sugarload of overstock !

    What happens if I try to charge 2 cars at the same time?

    My point is, why would they not just manufacture gen3 wall connectors for both terminations; instead of maintaining two sets (gen 2 and gen 3) of casings, electronics, etc in supply, under warranty, etc. It seems better to reduce supply complexity AND use first mover advantage on setting up an...

    What happens if I try to charge 2 cars at the same time?

    This is correct. I was looking at having a Tesla and a J1772 power sharing (replacing a 3 with a Rivian in 202x) but right now it’s not possible. I can’t imagine why this is better from a manufacturing perspective. One would think power-sharing will be very common in households at the front of...

    Dirt and Snow Coilover - Unplugged Performance

    I’m sure unlimited can provide ground truth, i have no idea how to measure it. Of course it must depend on the height chosen, I added 1.75ish inches from stock.

    Model 3 Trunk Leak After Rain

    Had the symptom (Seattle) - and with the latest rains and winds found the subtrunk bottom with 0.1 cm of water- feeling grateful to past me for getting a maxpider subtrunk liner It came down to pine needles and grimy rubber-lid contact. See attached. While obviously design could help avoid...

    Dirt and Snow Coilover - Unplugged Performance

    Looks great- Off-topic question, is someone on the way to replace the roof rack bars with one that are flat/straight? I carry a lot of ad hoc stuff but putting a whole rack makes the view from the interior looks like a cage. I have had zero time to write a review . In the meantime, some pics.

    Hi to anyone who may be interested- I just got the Unplugged Performance Dirt and Snow Offroad Coilovers installed. I have learned so much from this forum over the last ~10 years, and I tend to do so little on my cars that this a good opportunity for me to contribute back. So, I plan to do a...

    Tesla’s head of heavy duty trucking has left the company

    I'm not offended at all 🤣. My point is - you, I, others can raise the bar with our choices so we can come here to enjoy (or demoan) something about Tesla instead of a scroll wall of generalized offendickery ping pong.

    Any other lift kit players aside from MPP?

    I don’t have the code, but everything seems to say it’s odometer. Therefore yes, one would expect the number to go up by 5% as each “mile” is 5/% physically longer to the car.

    Maxpider 3-D for 7 seater finally shipped!

    Did you get it or was it only a “your shipping label has been created” notification (that’s what I have). We are using the 7 seats more than we thought we would even with Covid isolation and avoiding sharing rides going on.

    Still in the trunk. 2nd law of thermodynamics and other more meaningful things to do keep getting in the way. We finished building our kids’ school play yard! Farm work! Work work!

    Any other lift kit players aside from MPP?

    I would guess a 5% ish from the norm, as expected. Other than that not noticeable but I’m not scientific about it. This is in Seattle in a rainy and windy week, over 431 miles. A nice surprise is that it seems that the car does a lot of its calculations based on the measured kWh/mi, which...

    Your wait time may be even longer. Hertz ordered 100,000 Teslas

    I find Tesla to be the best rental cars. And I’m talking eg in Colorado snow and mountains. Most rental cars are not used for everyday domestic use, it’s mostly corporate, tourism, trips, relatives, etc. Usually there’s super chargers and destinations with chargers in the mix

    The what. Please stop putting reactions in others (“you seem offended”) , tasteless references to folks’ home towns. If someone’s thumbs down demoralizes you take it up with them , don’t drag the rest of the forum into it. The forum is pretty good at recognizing facts in general. Opinions about...

    MPP Lift Kit Install Instructions, Range Discussion & Driving Impressions

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I went for the 245/60 Narrower and risk rubs to get an extra cm clearance? Meh. But I’m a utilitarian and short of extra time- if minmaxing is your thing go for it! Enjoy the journey-

    I also swapped in the Black Rhino Mozs. Other options remaining after discarding dozens were TsW Ascent, Bardo , Bristol , fifteen52 tarmac , and Black Rhino Morocco and Kruger (ymmv, these may have characteristics that don’t make them suitable) . Between the 5x114.3 , 18x8.5, offset, weight...

    Rear Camber Adjust Link DIY Possible, But Requires More Work Than It Appears On Paper

    Kirkland Tire Pros does a bunch of Tesla suspension, wheel mods, etc . They installed my mpp adjustable camber arms and will be doing new upp shocks . Super recommended, and the Tesla expertise shows (from little things like understanding keycards to bigger ones like knowing about lift pucks or...

    MPP Lift Kit Install Instructions, Range Discussion & Driving Impressions

    Yes there is a great thread (thought I linked it) with detailed analysis of load per axle and the envelope it covers. There were nice load graphs and I learned a lot about stuff that as an engineer I appreciate but never cared much about in the past because I’ve never cared to mod cars wheels...

    Vendor MPP 1.75″ Model Y Suspension Lift Kit

    Of course it is not official or in writing, but it does not void the warranty according to a service advisor who came do a thing on our 3 - he saw and commented on the Y so we talked for a while about all the Ys in the area (Seattle) he’s worked on with MPP kits, impact on driving, amount of...

    Yakima EXO System

    I was coincidentally looking at it today- seems a smart system, but the whole getup (swing bar, base fork, higher fork, a box and ski carriers, and doodads) was coming at $2k which I’m having trouble justifying to myself.

    MPP Lift Kit Install Instructions, Range Discussion & Driving Impressions

    Yes do you need TPMS and yes you need to order it from Tesla because Model Y uses a special Bluetooth protocol (cant recall whether it is proprietary or just uncommon). I took mine from the previous wheel because 2021 supply chain.

    Vendor MPP 1.75″ Model Y Suspension Lift Kit

    That was exactly what got explained to me by MPP, UP, the folks that did my suspension, and my back of napkin geometry sketches. as a neophyte to suspension but an engineer, I wouldn’t describe it, as “better handling”: a negative camber (wheels angled outwards as you get closer to the...

    MPP Lift Kit Install Instructions, Range Discussion & Driving Impressions

    At least for me, I wanted something that 1) fit the car (thus 18 or larger) would max the sidewall (thus small as possible wheel: 18, and maximize radius of tire) while preventing any mechanical problems (rubbing, bad camber, etc), while using the MPP lift kit. Wh/mi readings offsets for me...

    Trailer hitch lock

    Email 1Up or call them to tell them you have mY and they will send you one that finishes in an angle, that gives the geometry you need. they say they don’t advertise it on the website because people would get confused but I don’t agree.

    Safety Score

    For those that want to have fun instead of sitting it out or complain, I have found a crummy but ok app that you can set to make noises upon hitting preset lateral and front/back g thresholds. like a lot of sensor apps it’s no beaut but it adds a fun ding ding when hitting high enough braking...
  44. EchoDelta

    Any other lift kit players aside from MPP?

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ no idea. I can check the geometry when i see the car. I personally thought AT style tires (like Toyo open country, falken wildpeak , Yokohama g015 ish) looked great but not worth the efficiency or noise.

    Continental CrossContact LX25, 245/60 R18 (Note- i don’t have space-time-energy to have two sets of tires so this is a good all season balance for me. They seem quieter than OEM but maybe it’s placebo effect, or maybe it’s that i’m driving like grandma obsessing over my SafetyScore this week)...

    Any other lift kit players aside from MPP?

    A local shop to where I live had a MY owner pay them to iteratively and empirically try the largest diameter they could avoiding rubbing. 245/60 18 on wheels with 35mm offset was the best they could do. I have the MPP lift kit, adjustable camber arms, stock shocks and these larger wheels and...
