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

    I wanted to give this a bump to see if there is any new choices. Going to be running ASP in autocross on A7s and MPP suspension on my P3D. Hoping to run 295-315s on 18in wheels. Any new recommendations or insights?

    MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade - technician skipped screen replacement

    Just picked up the S, I did get the new screen, all the yellow and the screen protector I had are gone, Ic and center screen reboot together, shows fsd with visualizations. Can't get USB drive to format, selection is grayed out.

    MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade - technician skipped screen replacement

    Just dropped off for fsd and mcu2 upgrade. Confirmed screen would be replaced. They said yes because it was ordered and on the ticket. Said however that didn't know if the fsd CPU was there after I got the text that it was there and stopped getting emails. Hope it was so we don't have to go back.

    MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade - technician skipped screen replacement

    Have a 16 S 75D scheduled for hw3 and mcu2 on Monday. The estimate that they sent includes the touchscreen but makes no mention of the IC.

    Reduced Range - Tesla Issued a Service Bulletin for possible fix

    Took my 09/18 build P3D in for FSD upgrade and battery check, was told "many factors affect range", this SB doesn't apply to you, less than 200 miles of range on road trips, blah, blah, blah. Nothing done for battery but got some nifty visualisation on the display of trash cans and traffic lights.

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    2018 model 3 performance, bought when fsd was 2.5k, got app notification to schedule, apt was canceled, part was ordered, part came in 4 days later, rescheduled apt, did it at service due to other issues, install was fast, had to wait on hubs due to click on acceleration. Car came back, had to...

    Wifi turns off when in drive

    I bought premium for this exact reason. You are able to use an app called macrodroid to turn on hotspot once it connects to the cars Bluetooth and then turn it off when disconnected, fairly simple and works really well. However the wifi turning off was annoying so I pay the $10

    2020.4.1 Update Issue

    My 16 S downloaded and installed it like normal, my P3 won't even download the update, I've got premium connectivity and it's on my wifi. I have the update notification but it won't download.

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.50.x - Driving Visualization improvements, new voice commands, Camping Mode

    Wonder if the .7 update has to do with the expiration of premium connectivity?

    Tesla V10 software update rollout: post here if you are still waiting

    Wonder if it matters if you bought FSD pre or post delivery? We bought it when I was on special earlier in the year for our S and P3D+ post delivery, on the East coast and no V10 yet, patiently waiting!

    Unplugged sway bars

    Yup, just retired from the Navy, spent 2 tours with the Marine Corps and now work in the Pentagon clinic. Good catch!!

    Unplugged sway bars

    Not helpful for your question, no condescension, but nothing, only takes 6 bolts to put each one on and I can jack the car and remove the undertray. It's easy, just be safe she use jack stands or a lift.

    Unplugged sway bars

    Typically a rear bar would reduce understeer or pushing in corners, other words the car would turn better, really only makes a difference at speed. The opposite with a front bar only. Using both would reduce the rocking of the car and with these bars you could tune front and rear to get the...

    Unplugged sway bars

    Yup did it myself in about 15 minutes, I used a rattle gun to remove the bar from the links but hand tools would work. Just need a ratchet set and an Allen or torque but set of you don't have a rattle gun to hold the bolt as you take off the nuts. Be aware both rear tires need to be in the air...

    Unplugged sway bars

    I measured and that is the part number. See the attached picture, my caliper doesn't have batteries so ignore the display. It is an October 2018 delivery P3D.

    Slightly stiffer. My wife didn't notice any difference at all.

    Unplugged sway bars

    Short Review of rear only Due to scca rules I can only install one bar and remain in B street. I have a P3D that I've been autocrossing with some track time. I have always noticed some mid corner understeer. The rear bar went in really quickly, and I set it to the highest setting to see what...

    Fell from Model-3's bottom, what's it??

    Looks like the one from the right side under the bumper cover. Lift up the carpet covering the taillight and see if it goes there. Hard to tell the size from the picture.

    2019 Model 3 Performance has a hitch cover

    Funny how informed the service centers are. I made the drive last week to see if I could buy the European panel for my hitch and after the guy walked around asking people I was told no because it was an international part. SMH, back to the SC to try to order. This time with the part number.

    Unplugged sway bars

    Rear bar installed. Super easy, bolted right up, 30 min taking my time with hand tools. Fit and finish is superb. Blue color stands out a bit, I wonder what service will think? Stock bar on the P3D is 20mm vs the standard 16mm listed on the unplugged website. Not sure how much difference I...

    Unplugged sway bars

    The rear that I ordered arrives in Monday. I'll have it on promptly but the next autocross event is not until mid August. I can only run one bar due to scca rules and my suspension is stock P3D. I'd like to add adjustable shocks but again due to the rules I have to use the stock springs and...

    Unplugged sway bars

    Good to hear you are receiving parts!! I can't ever get a response via email but every time I call I get an answer right away!! I've never thought about Elon time with aftermarket parts but I can deal with that. The car pushes mid corner and I over driver, hoping the bar can drive both...

    Unplugged sway bars

    You can usually get one custom bent for a reasonable price, but without being tested, proven like I'm hoping this one will be.

    CAN data and solostorm

    Looking for some help to get CAN data from my model 3 into solostorm. Got an evtv module that connects to the car and gives an obd port and Bluetooth and wifi connectivity. I've been reading but not sure I'm smart enough. Thought is I need to know what PID to tell solostorm for brake pressure...

    Tesla owner (Model 3 preferably) in East KY?

    Dude I was just in SW Virginia for an autocross event. I'll be going back next month. Not sure if the dates yet but if not too far I wouldn't mind.

    Unplugged sway bars

    I ordered 22 March for the full autocross season. I was told that changes had to be made after a Tesla Corsa event to make it better. I'm okay waiting if it is better but you are right communication has been only when I call.

    Unplugged sway bars

    Anyone who is not a beta tester for unplugged performance get their sway bars yet? Last time I spoke to them, 4 weeks ago, they expected them to start shipping 2 weeks ago. Thanks for the heads up. Have one test and tune left in August to get it dialed in.

    P3D Left Rear Wheel Click

    Don't think it is the brake pad indicator. Awesome video with the exact sound. Drive axel nuts could be it. Sway bar will be replaced soon anyway. Thanks for finding the video!!!!

    P3D Left Rear Wheel Click

    Tore down the brakes and cleaned and reassembled. Placed lube as needed, still makes the noise. Relay is interesting thought but only on hard acceleration in either direction, if you start slow, no noise.

    P3D Left Rear Wheel Click

    My P3D has a click or chirp from the left rear wheel. I have checked all of the suspension components and made sure they are tight and lubricated. What is causing the click? Wheel bearing, drive shaft? There is no play is the wheel at all and I can not replicate the noise with the car on jack...

    Just got car - noticing more body roll on twisty roads than usual

    I've ordered a sway bar for the rear in March and still don't have it from unplugged. How did you get it already? They told me they are waiting until after Tesla Corsa. But still waiting... I can't run both due to scca rules.

    Any guesses on when the Model 3 hitch will be available in US.

    Several times, once from DC to NJ and once from DC to Summit Point. Also twice for the test. It did better going to Summit Point because there is a lot of time off the highway. DC to NJ use was 400, DC to SP was 375. Bigger spoiler on the model 3 to push the air up and away from the...

    Any guesses on when the Model 3 hitch will be available in US.

    So far our thought is that it would take a huge spoiler in order to make a difference due to the dirty air behind the 3.

    Any guesses on when the Model 3 hitch will be available in US.

    It's more narrow than the car, you can't even see it with the side mirrors. I did an experiment to see if I could reduce drag but wasn't worth it. Only saved 4 wh/m. The manufacturer of the trailer, Leroy, is going to put it in an aero program to gather some more information.

    Any guesses on when the Model 3 hitch will be available in US.

    Aftermarket hitch from etrailer. Cheaper than Tesla, easy to install, full range from my P3D is 165 miles at 75mph, expect to cut range about in half. From my research it seams to be the typical cut. In the picture it was 6 in the morning and the 8 slots were all empty. If it's a busy time I...

    Sentry Keeper- free Windows software to manage your Sentry videos

    Has Any P3D+ Owners Gotten Carbon Fiber Spoiler?

    Mine was installed yesterday by mobile service. It was a really nice fit but on the passenger side it did lift by 2mm. The tech told me to push it down once it was warmed by the sun. It was small so I figured I would try a great gun. I heated the area until it was hot to almost not touch...

    Sentry Keeper- free Windows software to manage your Sentry videos

    Not too bad on the ps4p. But since the car is so heavy it runs through the rival or re71r about twice as fast as an ice. The tires are worth about 1.5 to 2 sec in the dry.

    Has Any P3D+ Owners Gotten Carbon Fiber Spoiler?

    Took delivery in October 18 in Rockville, MD. Got an email to install the spoiler on an upcoming Sunday in Virginia. I declined, not going to make that drive in DC for a piece of useless carbon on a weekend. Others have gotten mobile service to install and I figure quality will improve with time.

    P3D+ Autocross

    Quick look at a P3D+ at an Autocross school. Not mine, cough cough... One of the instructors has a YouTube channel and wanted to do a quick look and a full video. He got some of the car specs wrong but seeing his Tesla grin at the end of the video is priceless. Enjoy.

    Model 3 AWD Performance 19" or 20" Summer's

    If just commuting I would use 18s. Even with autocrossing I use 18s with the rival s due to the reduction of unsprung mass. My 20s sit in the basement.

    Don't buy FSD for $2k more. [from 2019 - FSD upgrade not available for 2k at this time]

    The only difference between the hw2 and the 2.5 is the extra Nvidia chip/card. All of the other hardware is the same. They did update the MCU but that is independent from AP.

    Don't buy FSD for $2k more. [from 2019 - FSD upgrade not available for 2k at this time]

    Going from hw2 to 3 gives features we are missing, sentry, dash cam, etc, the other is the processing power and neural network of hw3, this should increase the safety of the system even if fsd never happens. From 2.5 to 3 the increase in features is less but the network and processing power in...

    Don't buy FSD for $2k more. [from 2019 - FSD upgrade not available for 2k at this time]

    Just bought it for my hw2 model s but still trying to decide if it is worth it for the hw2.5 model 3. I think it is but wife is on the fence about spending the extra on a car that is 6 months old. Her question is: where does it end? Lower maintenance costs but am I going to be spending 2k...
