    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    Thanks. I'm not the most eloquent but its something. "Can we unbury the model 3 now? It is far from a SS car. The "problem" is in my opinion easier to drive fast than just about anything else due to its traction/stability control abilities. So people are butt hurt that someone with less skill...

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    I wouldn't run without ABS. Unless you are a god, you will be giving up time or flat spotting your tires. The only time to disconnect abs in a non track mode car would be to have fun in a snowy empty parking lot or you got a set of tires you want to finish off in a squeal show.

    You want a tire warmer? I've been running a 350z in STU this year so not sure I'll transition that fast. Plus you'd have to convince my wife to let me go, got a friend's wedding in DC on the 10th.

    Why are you running the zero g config if you are using 19's? Just to confirm. Ran 265 REs and PS4S without issue. Swap to 275 AO52s and now you have issues. But you HAVE NOT swapped back to PS4S or REs and experienced no cut in power with the same manuevers?

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    SCCA doesn't pay out for AutoX... But yeah I figured the no EV-X would lose you the most. No reason to add it if we have no one running it, supps are already done for this year sorry :( You bringing the hoosiers? but seriously there will be seats available in other cars that will be more...

Unfortunately we are not recognizing EV-X (maybe next year as I might go that route) so we would stuff you in XS but come out for the weekend for a national level competition where you could get paid! Supercharger is 30 minutes away, I...

    Sur4G, Autocross (60+ second courses on mainly asphalt, small concrete section), stock camber, driven 99% on course I drove home on them once, maybe twice. I'm no alien but I did win my local non "pro" class, averaging 8th in PAX. 🤷‍♂️

    I flipped mine after ~4 events. Wore perfectly even. one or three small spots of delamination occurring on the edge when I could feel it getting squishy from heat in the rear.

    Supercharger ~25 minutes away at Del Lago casino. I get to Seneca at ~93% after charging up to 100%. I was debating EV-X but I got an offer to co-drive in a STU 350z for this year so I jumped in that We do have on site camping! Or Sampson State Park is across the street We have a two day pay...

    Does a Model 3 first production with low VIN (#567) increase value?

    *sugar* they could fill my whole back seat with batteries and trunk too if I can get more track time.
  24. GAGT

    Going to order a new Model 3 performance. Should I consider the long range AWD?

    Is snow a factor? Because if it is you'll regret not getting the performance to toss around in it. I'd expect your guess of 8-10k a year will be low, it seriously is that much fun to drive. You'll find excuses to drive it. The instant power without any noise is hilariously addicting. By about...

    https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/posts/5935286/ Assuming stock suspension. You'll want to zip tie the abs wire, and you might want a 5mm spacer. SUR4G's in 275/35 fit fine but the 275/35 Rivals were not fine.

    Not trying to knock you or anything but one of any of those are more than I paid for all 4 of my 19x9s LOL. And because we just got a batch of pictures from May, here is one. Totally ate that cone :(

    My car (literally) smells like dog #[email protected]!

    Ah finally. Newer forum is finally starting to hate the newbies questions who don't search and read. I can't handle the 4xe forum right now. Damn plebs

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    There. Easier to tell when running on a track where you know what your time is supposed to be. When 'crossing I always compare myself to similar competitors to evaluate time across different course layouts. An STU prepped 350z with a driver with similar driving experience to mine was my...

    Audio system looses bass or all sound, and strange clicking

    I've had similar issues since last summer! Bass would cut out when i had the volume maxed or almost maxed but music would still play. I could change to any input and there would be no bass, did a soft reset(steering wheel buttons) and still nothing. I believe I even did the hard reset...

    2021 AutoX Points season log. 2019 Performance on Mountain Pass Performance parts.

    While I'm sure it was more of a joke, with EVs instant torque I do wonder how much better it would be compared to an ICE doing it.

    2021 AutoX Points season log. 2019 Performance on Mountain Pass Performance parts.

    No e brake? Manually adjust to -10 stability entering the pin, stab throttle maintaining the turn and adjust back to 0 (or whatever you use) to get all the grips out of the exit. :p

    Software to interpret Trackmode data

    I recall someone posting a free software to analyze Trackmode data but I cannot seem to find it. What are you using? I want to compare my fastest run to someone who humbled me during a fun run. Edit: Found what I was thinking of Free track mode telemetry viewer now to start figuring it out!
  34. GAGT

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    Just an update, they also can catch the ABS wire :( Silly me thought that was only a issue when gaining camber so I never pre-emptively zip tied them back. Granted it occurred in the braking zone on a ~75 mph left gradually increasing sweeper(mocked after Suzuki 130r)
  35. GAGT

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    oof I defiantly opened a 2015 pdf not the 2021 one. Alright that is way better but don't you think it would be top dog?
  36. GAGT

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    I don't think STU is an option. It would be top dog for sure. Now this is based on my ability to get about the same raw times as a national champ 350z driven by someone who I believe to have similar driver abilities as myself (aka good but not that good haha) while I'm still in SS. These are at...

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

    Didn't know you tried supercar 3's. I was debating those vs BFGs. Local competitor and guy I'm battling for championship runs the supercar 3's on his BS 'Maro. Says he prefers them to RE-71Rs when he backed to back them. Ultimately I chose the BFG due to much more data on them.

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    That is assuming the M3P is a top 5 car, which like I said it is unfortunately not. But for sure the fact that it can hang with the $120k sports cars is awesome! The hardest part when looking at national results is understanding who is the aliens to be looking at. At the end of the day as long...

    HDPE/Track Day Insurance

    I couldn't buy another M3P out of pocket(Still have a loan too) so insurance was for me, I wasn't going to go off track or hit someone else but I can't control someone hitting me.

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    Gosh this is such a hard topic with so many ifs and buts but.... Nationally we won't be competitive in SS (I think ASP is still out to be determined). As someone stated national courses are usually 40-60 mph sections and of course slaloms which is a huge disadvantage with our weight and lack of...
  41. GAGT

    Autocross- SCCA EV-X Class vs. SS

    Can confirm they do work HOWEVER with stock suspension and stock offset they will clearance themselves on the radius of the knuckle unlike my SUR4G's. Like I said they are self clearancing so its not to worry but figured I should shed some light on that with first hand experience. They do take...

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

    Sad to hear. For my first ever track day after autocrossing for 5 years I was pleased with the increased thermal capacity of the RB XT910s and Motul 660 and the fact that they don't squeal on the street so I will keep them on for the rest of the autocross season... but if I decide to go further...

    GDI I bought this car with the sole intentions of getting rid of "nah bro its stage 2 so its gots the launch control burbles through my V7 accessport on the revision 27 under cheat code up down up down left right a b start". Don't be doing this to me.

    Eibach sway bushings too tight?

    Given the lack of issues, no. Did you tighten everything up when the suspension was loaded?

    Winter driving advice, winter tire choices, etc.

    Your tire choice, driving style, and weather will greatly affect your range. Your rim choice will slightly(basically invisibly) affect your range. They are winter rims man, just send it on what you want (economic decision or because those rims look fly as hell). I personally went a mixture of...
