    Control Arm Replacement

    As long as the bolts are marked before removing them from the FUCA mount, and are then placed back in the same spots, I would be comfortable not having an alignment done. But, to @dsgerbc point, if they are removed and installed all willy-nilly then there is a chance that the toe could change...

    Impressive, that is certainly an outlier scenario.

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

    Yeah those are often not the best fitment. Cutting off half an inch is probably the best option. Not a lot of ways to secure it long term.

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

    Gotcha, you could try adjusting the FUCA mount to get a bit more caster - or just jump to the MPP Bushings :)
  11. MasterC17

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

    If I'm looking at this correctly it appears you have less caster than stock? I did not have any rubbing issues, but I am using the adjustable caster bushings. What size specifically did you end up getting - 305/30/19?

    AutoX times on UHP All Seasons vs Stickier tires?

    IMO it's worth having a dedicated set of tires for AutoX for the same reason it's worth having a set of summer tires and winter tires in places with snow; the long-term cost is more or less the same and you're not operating at peak performance 100% of the time with one set of tires. A saying I...

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

    Anything 295 or larger is going to need modifications to the front to make it work with stock fenders, there's literally no room left either way (knuckle or fender) so the offset is basically just finding the sweet spot where the tire doesn't rub on either. The primary benefit to 305's is that...

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

    Well, primarily it's a pain in the butt to get to. You really need to remove the front bumper and then the headlight to get access to it. And, even then, I don't think that particular part of the fender is where the concern is. Also, it's lower down which matters a lot less when it comes to...

    MPP compression rod and control arm bearings.

    It's certainly not bad, but it really depends on the person. I don't typically notice or get bothered by NVH stuff, but some people are extremely sensitive to it. And of course, not all NVH is the same. I think it's one of those things, if you're asking, probably err on the side of caution.

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

    A genuine BBK. The issue with the stock P3D calipers is that they can't accept a terribly thick rotor. While the MPP two piece rotors are considerably better than the stock rotors, they're just limited by mass. This is totally dependent on the driver though, there's a number of people who have...
  17. MasterC17

    MPP compression rod and control arm bearings.

    Yes, you should. The FLCA bushings themselves do not change the alignment, but where the bolts are relative to the subframe will change. The compression rod bushings will increase caster, which will cause the other alignment values to change.

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    Not to be contrary, but is it possible that the wider tire is making slight contact with a wheel speed sensor? I obliterated both front wheel speed sensors when I moved from a 275 to 295 because I totally forgot to zip tie them back. But, I've killed one before on 275's too. Just seems odd, I...

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    Interesting, if it were me I might try replacing the wheel speed sensors one at a time and seeing if the concern changes. The tires shouldn't be the root cause.
  20. MasterC17

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    Curious what tire and size you are running? I've kind of always preached for staying within 2% of the stock heights (26.3" - 26.8"). So, anything between 25.8" and 27.3" should be OK, though if you can select something closer to stock heights that's obviously preferred.

    Martian MW05 Race Wheels

    Well I have a different offset than the MW05's which are +40. I have 19x10.5 MW03's in +25. So, I am fairly confident you will need -3 degrees (roughly) of front Camber with 15mm spacers. In the rear, you should only need -2.5 to -3 degrees of camber. I needed almost -4 to fit the 305's.
  22. MasterC17

    MPP compression rod and control arm bearings.

    305's say otherwise 😁 I really think it depends on your use case/goals with the car. For me, having easily and quickly adjustable rear camber is of great benefit. I can add or subtract .3 degrees of camber easily, and I know what adjustments I need to make to the toe arms to compensate...

    MPP compression rod and control arm bearings.

    I still do feel that way about the base Comfort coilovers. Don't get me wrong, the Comfort's (non-adjustable) are great. But, Autocross tends to be a slippery slope, so you don't want to regret not getting the right thing off the bat, especially when you consider installation and alignment...
  24. MasterC17

    MPP compression rod and control arm bearings.

    I would say this - you can dial in the understeer even further with adjustable coilovers. So, the Sport's are worth the upgrade over the Comfort's for that alone. Having said that, you don't need to do everything at once, so you could keep the rear toe and camber arms stock for now. The big...

    Martian MW05 Race Wheels

    It works - albeit barely. You may need to shave your knuckles a mm or two. It requires a lot of camber front and rear. And of course, not all tires are the same, so it could vary from one brand to another. Below photo is on Falken RT660's, 305/30/19.

    MPP compression rod and control arm bearings.

    Ok, so I think you have several contributing factors going on here. Your front camber is definitely low. I would get FUCA's to fix that. Your rear toe-in is causing understeer. Set that to 0 as a baseline. Your tires are part of the problem. I know they're a bit on the expensive side, but the...
  28. MasterC17

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

    Those definitely *look* like they would rub under compression. I just kept adding camber until mine fit, and they ended up with very little poke. Even then, it was extremely tight.
  29. MasterC17

    Please Help Me Decide - I’ve Narrowed it Down to Two Wheels

    Both good options. Martian's are lighter and better looking IMO (having seen both on cars in real life). So, I would go with the MW03 personally.

    Tesla 2022 Model 3 Tires

    Not sure why you guys want the MXM4. It's a pretty subpar tire besides efficiency. They last 15k-25k miles and have poor stopping distance in both the dry and the wet. Hankook makes some great tires. I haven't had a chance to test these yet, but I would not be surprised if they are an upgrade in...

    Brake Fluid replacement, bleeding sequence

    The only way to display it on the UI is with Track Mode. I think you can get the values using ScanMyTesla on a LR though.
  33. MasterC17

    Brake Fluid replacement, bleeding sequence

    Yeah I always do RR, LR, RF, LF and have never had any issues. FWIW I typically only bleed the outer screws on the front calipers unless a caliper is being replaced.
  34. MasterC17

    Rapid tire wear

    The MXM4 does wear fairly quickly. I typically see people get ~15k-25k miles out of them. Some extremely gentle drivers can eek out 30k, but it's rare.

    19" sports wheel vs 19" sports wheel V2

    I would expect to lose about 5% of your range moving from the 18's with the MXM4's to the 19's with the Continental's. Regardless, you are probably going to be closer to 200 miles of range at highway speeds either way. EPA Rated range is a combination of city and highway driving and does not...

    Racing Brake XT910 vs XT970

    I'm sure @Knightshade will be here to roast you himself soon enough, but you clearly have no understanding of how brakes work. The biggest BBK on earth will NOT stop your otherwise stock Model 3 faster or in a shorter distance than the stock brakes in a single-stop scenario. This isn't a...
  39. MasterC17

    19" sports wheel vs 19" sports wheel V2

    I'm assuming you mean for a new build configuration? 18" will net you better range, but the 19" tire is better at just about everything else, especially wear characteristics.
  40. MasterC17

    Lime Rock Park - 59.5!

    Aesthetics and tire availability. I knew I wanted to run 305's and there's more options in 19" than 18".
