    Titan 7 O.W.L. Titanium Race Nut for Tesla

    Someone take these off my hands so I don't have to pay a restocking fee to return them to Titan7 :)

    Tein coilovers coming and springs too!

    See post 44, Tein reported they will be EFDC compatible. Super interested in this. I'm an existing Driveway customer, not just some random internet goober :) Will be in touch.

    The question is will you guys install them with an EFDC system?! :)

    Help me with Ride Height measurement

    Ground-to-fender, especially comparing different cars, is not useful as even slight tire pressure differences will affect it. Hub-to-fender is the only consistent measurement and ignores wheel/tire differences. Even then however it has to be the exact same wheels measured the exact same way on...

    Anyone Buy Modern Spare Tire Kit?

    Note that you can lift both tires from one side of the car too. I.e. if you can't fit the jack at the closest jack point, try the other one. Personally I hope I never need it either way!

    Does performance feel safer?

    I think you'd only run into diminishing returns if the car felt unsafe while accelerating. Think of a big block V8 50s-70s muscle car shredding tires and listing to the side. The Tesla's, even the fastest ones, have such good traction control and stability that they feel safe when accelerating...

    Choosing the Right Enkei PF01's for a M3P

    Because big shiny wheels sell cars :) 99% of buyers, even Performance buyers, probably will never think about it. But they will complain about range!

    Choosing the Right Enkei PF01's for a M3P

    I too was concerned about the affect the wider tires would have on steering. Having switched from 235 to 255, I can feel zero difference in steering. In retrospect I should have just gone with 275's all around for max grip. This is just to say, I see no reason to run staggered tires at all. The...

    MASTER THREAD: Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Thanks! I saw those; they're 22mm hex, won't fit in stock bore. I mean the nut will fit but a socket won't except maybe thin wall, but I don't want to risk screwing up my brand new $4000 wheels :) I think these were designed for the Model S which is 22mm. I'm actually not sure the 30mm flange...

    Vendor M14x1.5 grade 5 titanium lug nuts set of 20 that fit Tesla model S 3 X Y

    I'll add another vote for closed-end nuts, if you ever think of expanding your offerings :) Some other feedback: After having tried some 10 different lugs, I think anything with a 19mm hex looks too small on stock bore. I realize you originally made these for an aftermarket bore, but with...

    MASTER THREAD: Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    One of my specific goals is to find closed-end nuts. Which makes everything harder since almost all the "tuner nuts" are open. And if they're not open end, they're way too long! I also think the ~19mm nuts look too small, it's the reason I didn't like the Titan 7 ones (in addition to being too...

    Continuing my lug nut journey...maybe these photos will help others so they don't have to order 7 different sets of lugs like I have... (I apologize in advance that some photos only have 4 lugs, I was trying to keep costs down by not buying full sets when possible...) Stock for comparison...

    Feature Idea: Built-in 0-60 Measuring Function

    Phone GPS, and the one in your car, measures position at 1hz (once per second). Not nearly often enough to measure 0-60. The Draggy measures at 10hz (which still sounds really low, but it's 10 times faster). So it's not just a software change in this case, you need GPS hardware with a higher...

    Electronic Damper rumors?

    Looks like Tein is planning to have EDFC-compatible dampers for the Model 3: Tein coilovers coming and springs too! (which is pretty cool, EDFC looks a lot better than KW DDC)

    Titan 7 O.W.L. Titanium Race Nut for Tesla

    No special key needed, it's a 19mm hex. I imagine the S/X lugs are 21 or 22 mm so I'm guessing the caps don't fit but I have no experience with it.

    Titan 7 O.W.L. Titanium Race Nut for Tesla

    Brand new. They retail for $320, you would pay ~$360 after tax and shipping for new ones. Note that I did not drive on them, I installed 5 lugs on one wheel and decided I didn't like they way they look, and for this kind of money I need to LOVE them :) Selling for $320 shipped, so save yourself...

    Adjustable vs Non-adjustable MPP Comfort Coilovers

    *I* want to run those wires! KW doesn't offer DDC for the Model 3. I emailed them about it but never got a reply. I hadn't looked at Tein, their controller looks more advanced, but do they have a Model 3 application? I'd be totally fine with either of these...

    Need advice: Grey P3D- wheels and tires

    There are literally thousands of wheel designs out there and whether or not they look sportier is completely subjective :p Check out Signature's gallery for a lot of Tesla-specific shots (or just do a Google image search). Keep in mind that most wheel designs are copies of high-end wheels, so...

    Adjustable vs Non-adjustable MPP Comfort Coilovers

    One thing to consider is how lazy you are. Damping adjustments require crawling around in the dirt and/or jacking the car up. I had KW v3 dampers on a previous car (these are double adjustable, compression and rebound like MPP). I had a fantasy that I would make them stiffer for driving days and...

    Staggered or Square Setup

    You didn't indicate a tire width so it's difficult to answer. If you're going to stuff 275 tires in there, your offset options will be limited anyway. That being said, there's a third option: "square staggered"...or is it "staggered square"? Run the same tires on all 4 wheels but with staggered...

    MASTER THREAD: Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Titan 7 O.W.L. Titanium Race Nut's. Not 100% sure I like them better than stock, to be honest. I didn't realize they would look so much smaller...they also have a ton of unused thread so I started digging into the wheel stud threads... (reposting stock wheel for easy comparison)

    Clunk with quick sudden acceleration. Any potential issues over time?

    You guys are right, hold mode is the key. I never use it so I never heard the sound but if you unable hold mode and then step on the gas but it definitely a clunk.

    Clunk with quick sudden acceleration. Any potential issues over time?

    There's no "driveline" in a traditional sense a Tesla. Just CV axles. I have no "clunk" when accelerating and it's perfectly acceptable to stomp on the "gas" pedal. The car has excellent traction control so you'll pretty much never spin the tires. I suspect the noise you heard was unrelated to...

    Ghost breaking

    I wish we had a way to report problems like the Beta users do. I recently took a drive I haven't done in 1.5 years and the car did the phantom breaking in the exact same spot it did 1.5 years ago.

    The reason Tesla will overtake BMW

    Not as much as I would have hoped. To be fair they are WAY better than the stock dampers. The stock performance dampers are really poorly tuned and, after adding lowering springs, it just made things worse. OTOH I chose the MPP Comforts as a cheap stop-gap. I really hope someone (e.g. KW) makes...

    The reason Tesla will overtake BMW

    The video is the definition of fluff :( No research at all, just some guy's opinion based on like 2 tweets. It's a complaint about BMW *marketing*. Retail marketing these days is pretty universally bad, regardless of brand. Fun fact, marketing has very little to do with product design. "The...

    MASTER THREAD: Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    I know Mountain Pass and a few others run 275 tires without issue. I chose 255 to to get a balance between range and performance, plus the slightly larger size gives me more battery height.

    EVS Motors Wheel Spacers for Model 3 15mm f/20mm r

    Wheel spacers for the Model 3. These are made for the OEM wheels and meant to bring the wheels out towards the fenders more for a flush look. Currently with the stock wheels, the fenders dramatically hang over the wheels. This will fix that awkward look. Fronts are 15mm, rears are 20mm. You can...

    the rate at which this car chews thru tires is insane

    Check your pressures too. The recommended pressures, while good for mileage, will wear the center of the tires faster. At some point Tesla changed from 45 PSI to 42 PSI, which is still high.

    MASTER THREAD: Jack Points — location, use, damage, pads, etc.

    It's already been mentioned, but I can understand not everyone wants to read the entire thread (especially after it was annoyingly merged): you don't need extra jack pads. Furthermore, if your car is lowered, it will be pretty much impossible to fit a jack under with an extra pad installed. For...
