    Advice on SSR GTX01

    The SSR GTX01 is a 73mm centerbore. These wheels were never made to be hub centric to the chassis. If they have the Nissan hub rings he can remove them and purchase new ones to be Tesla specific.

    Advice on SSR GTX01

    Hey Tej, you're fine. The GTX01 is the exact part # I helped to promote for SSR. The tire is a bit on the tall side but it should work for the model 3. Just both them on and you'll be ok. I would advise some aftermarket lugnuts that use a 19mm socket though.

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    Here's my car lowered on coilovers with what I consider ideal camber. 1. Same wheel as you 20" sports 2. Michelin PS4S OEM T0 spec 235/35/20 3. -1.1 camber front and -0.6 camber rear Spacers are 20mm Aspira studded spacers. I am sorry I don't have a photo going down the whole side of the...

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    So just for reference, I have aligned hundreds of model 3's and Y's and 99% of the time they all have variations in the rear camber values if a rear camber arm isn't used to find symmetry. So you may get pictures but it does not mean that those images will translate perfectly to what your car...

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    If that's the case then use a ruler and measure from the sidewall or shoulder of the tire to the inside of the fender. You'll have your answer.

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    I think this method is just a bandaid for aesthetics but may not reduce long term cost of tires. If you have your alignment sheet please share it. I think moving the 17mm up front isn't a bad idea but I'd really like to get more visibility on the rear camber settings. More often than not we...

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

    I do not think these two are related. They are totally independent of each other. You need FLCAB regardless of which route you go if you are going to continue putting those arms through the aggressive loads you are with racing whether it be circuit or autox. IMO, it's compulsory. If you...

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    So you have 20x8.5 20" sports with 235/35/20? When I had this setup 20mm studded spacers were flush with corrected camber settings in the rear. I agree that your current setup is not flush enough. Did you align the car? If so please share your printout and have you purchased rear camber arms?

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

    1. 100% you need higher rates. The comforts are not gonna do what you need. Depending on your pace and frequency at track you might even need more than the sport rates. 2. FLCAB should have been one of the first mods to sharpen you steering response. There's a lot of deflection in that...

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

    Comprehensive track attack compliments of @MountainPass and Aspira. Should make for some good times. Coupled this with some Goodyear SC3's based on MPP's tire review and some testing at Tesla Corsa. Can't wait to see this one rip.

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    Personally I would run less in the rear but all depends how you want your tire wear to be or how your car is handling right now.
  17. P3D-R

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    I think this depends how much you you swapping out tires and how you want that car to handle. If you run more negative camber in the rear than the front then the car will have more push / understeer. With that said an AWD Model 3 lowered about that much will usually have about -1.2 degs of...

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    Most go 5mm front and 14mm rear. Personally I think "flush" fitments on stock suspension makes the wheel gap look bigger so I'm not a fan of doing that.
  19. P3D-R

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    Honestly, you're confusing me. I think you're overthinking it so just do whatever your heart tells you to do. I'll explain one more time and then I'll be stepping away from this. When the car is at factory ride height you do not have much camber in the rear so 14mm in the rear is what I...
  20. P3D-R

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    This is in reference to the rear and I'm consolidating the info for you. This is all dependent on ride height. Stock height and no camber adjustment I would get 14mm. Lowered and no camber adjustment I would get 20's. Lowered with camber adjustment I would get 14mm.
  21. P3D-R

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    It's all dependent on where you want your rear camber to be. To fit a 20mm you'd probably need more negative camber than I personally would like to run.
  22. P3D-R

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    There's a track setup thread that we can answer these in or I can just DM you. This might start getting really off topic from spacers. IMO, tire choice will depend on your needs/objectives. I think guys should start on slower tires that won't heat cycle out too fast while they are learning...
  23. P3D-R

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    All relative on your ride height. Generally for every 1" of drop you might gain half a degree of negative camber up front. It's almost double that in the rear for the same drop. In regards to your needs for HPDE events I think it will depend on what your wheel/tire setup is and how much of...
  24. P3D-R

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    We don't gain much camber up front when lowering so only the rear camber arm would be truly needed imo. Front and rear toe is factory adjustable so you're fine.
  25. P3D-R

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    There is hardly any adjustment up front. In fact don't really have camber adjustment anywhere for all intensive purposes. Whatever we have is extremely minute. You'll have to decide for yourself what reasonable is for driver feel and tire wear. I have my own preferences that might not relate...

    KW V3 settings and alignment

    Did you get rear camber arms? What's your current ride height? Measure hub to fender in metric please on a relatively flat and level surface. Also share your wheel and tire setup in detail.
  27. P3D-R

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    Stock camber is relative to the height of the vehicle. When you lower the vehicle you gain more negative camber which is less than ideal imo. Many people will try to correct the aesthetic by adding a bigger spacer in the rear than the front but this does not correct the angle of the tire which...

    MPP Comfort Coilovers - Do I need additional parts?

    I would say 5mm slip ons front and rear with 265/30/20 tires. I think 255/35 are very tall tires and have seen some instances where an all season/winter tire has very tall tread and can rub the upright. This doesn't seem to be an issue with summer tires. I would highly advise getting the rear...

    He always does. Jesse is the best. What year is your P and which wheel do you have? If you want spacer recs I can advise.

    MPP Comfort Coilovers - Do I need additional parts?

    I would advise getting rear camber arms. All too often we see more negative camber in the rear than the front and personally that makes the car understeer more than I'd like on AWD. In addition to that, I like being able to reduce potential premature wear due to unevenness. I tend to see...

    Ideally you should also keep a patch kit with you. That's what we do for our clients. A couple of PTC unions and extra airline in the event there is a breach in the system between the manifold and the bag itself. Sadly that's one of the major risks you take with air. I always keep some...

    Adjusting caster to create heavier off-center steering?

    Redwood FUCA is complicated to adjust as well. You'll need a crow's foot. The UP ones is a bit easier to adjust for this reason. You just want to make sure you check for chassis clearances when you start modifying the shape of the FUCA the way those are adjusted.

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    They are 100% correct. 15mm studded will not work and 18/20 is too much.
  40. P3D-R

    Replaced tires at 15k, checked alignment. Wow, it was off!

    It does not take much to affect toe with height changes. When you lower the vehicle the front toes out but the rear toes in. In addition to that the factory toes out the front wheels so when lowered it just gets worse causing even more inside tire wear. Hope that's helpful. Where is your...

    255/40ZR19 on 19x9.5 too stretched?

    Just thought I'd chime in from experiences I've had from a prior client in regards to this question. I don't have concrete data on the DWS06+ but this is something that people should consider. I have no issues in terms of width for a 255/40 on a 9.5". My concern, Mr. Jerry I presume, is the...

    We don't ask these questions when we go wide. Range is not a priority. It's more about the driving feel of the car. The range is large affected by the tire compound and model more than anything imo.

    Vendor GiroDisc 370mm Rotors for GM Brembo 6-Pot Calipers

    The spiegler lines lack a bracket. We do a lot of the AP essex kits and have to toss those lines out because there's no bracket. It's very hard to pull them off the factory lines as well. I don't know if they created new ones or not but might be easier to just get with goodridge or a company...

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    Yup I wouldn't go past a 9.5 +30 on a silver caliper car with oem rotors and 265's. A lot of people don't realize that stock suspension will still compress "tuck tire" at full compression. It will definitely gain some camber but I don't think I'd push it out as far as he wants.

    Adjusting caster to create heavier off-center steering?

    One benefit of the curve is to alleviate the need for the ball joint to articulate too much. That's one of my biggest concerns and something you should be inspecting as well as chassis clearance. Companies who opt not to include the curve do so to cut the costs of manufacturing. The curve...

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    I recall your wheel sizes which is why I listed them in the post above your reply. My concern with you netting a 19x9.5 +15 offset with 265's is that your tire will contact your fender when the suspension compresses in a corner. Please tread lightly. You will also kick up a lot of debris on...

    Adjusting caster to create heavier off-center steering?

    The design of the Megan arms is horrid imo and lacks so much forethought. The way they do the turnbuckles on the chassis side and then the 3 bolts that allow the ball joint to slid back and forth is just shoddy to me. These are the same design as hardrace arms. I bet they are the ones who...

    Model 3 Performance Spacers

    IDK this is all too confusing to me now. Using spacers is very simple. You just take a measurement from the wheel or tire to the inside of the fender. Use a plumb bob if you need to. Tire fitment is all relative to wheel width, offset, and alignment values. I think you're making it more...

    Adjusting caster to create heavier off-center steering?

    If you adjust the upper carriage to get you nearly symmetrical caster you'll generally end up around +5.8 to +6.2 degrees of caster between 365 to 375mm ride height hub to fender. At least that is what I have found on the hundreds of 3's I've aligned and setup suspension on. I always adjust my...
