    FS: Model S drive unit (~2016), hacked and ready for custom conversion

    I'm moving and need to get rid of this drive unit. I'll sell if for a good price, if it can be sold quickly. It's hacked with Huebner's / Damien's control board and very easy to setup. It's the same drive unit I described here: and here...

    Roadster battery pack specs?

    Roadster battery pack specs?

    That's the most important part. Charging too fast at low temp leads to lithium plating and dendrites, which may puncture the separator resulting in a fire. The BMS must limit charge current based on SoC and temperature, active heating allows for the pack to be charged sooner. I'm thinking with...

    Roadster battery pack specs?

    The cost drivers are 1. the cells 2. the tooling to be able to manufacture the sheets (CNC wire bonding machine, maybe a molded part or two) 3. the engineering work to design/manufacture them Perhaps we could have a deal where replacement sheets should a sheet fail for an existing customer be...

    Roadster battery pack specs?

    The BMS can be handled. We have already designed drop in BMB replacements. The BMS/SoC computer can be fooled. The model 3 cells charging profile is the same as the LG cells. I believe we can still accomplish the life goal of 10 or more years without active cooling. The roadster only pulls 700A...

    Roadster battery pack specs?

    We're trying to gauge interest in aftermarket replacement roadster sheets. I'm thinking to use Model 3 cells with a custom designed assembly, wire bonded to custom busbars - basically a fully drop in factory replacement. There are two schools of thought. Fill up the modules and get a pack...

    Did one more vamp drain check. Last day was only 1 mile lost 9 miles lost over 5 days. Price also lowered again! $43,700!

    FS: 2018 Model 3, White, Perfect, 9.8k miles

    Price lowered $1400 $44,100. Car is nearly immaculate. Longest range Tesla ever made. 335mi EPA. Quick walkaround: Also going to do a vamp drain test this weekend. Started 161 miles mid-day Friday. I will follow up Monday. Sitting in about 35°F as it's quite cold this weekend.

    FS: 2018 Model 3, White, Perfect, 9.8k miles

    I think it's 6k. If someone is dead set on AP. We may want to do the ap update before ownership is transferred on Tesla side, just to ensure they honor the 6k price. That wouldn't be a problem.

    FS: 2018 Model 3, White, Perfect, 9.8k miles

    No EAP, but eligible for the discounted upgrade. I live 2 miles from work and only drive half the time. 88% of the miles were road-trip miles with only me or one other person in the car. No food, pets, kids, spills have occurred in the car:p Pics below.

    Rear Drive Unit Milling Noise - Real Fix? (no warranty)

    You miss the milling sound? I'll trade DU with you. :-D TBH, I have not checked the catalog. I'll have a look. I assume they wont sell things like bearings from the DU, only the whole unit. I assumed I would have to contact SKF myself and spec the bearings. Shouldn't be too hard.

    Rear Drive Unit Milling Noise - Real Fix? (no warranty)

    I'm picking up a rough 2013 85 with milling noise. Does anyone have info on a real fix? Replace the rotor/gear bearings? Add a carbon brush? The car is rebuilt so no warranty AFAIK. I've disassembled multiple drive units, no issues there. I just hope to confirm what the fix is.

    FS: 2018 Model 3, White, Perfect, 9.8k miles

    I've reluctantly decided to sell my amazing Model 3. It's a June delivery with a 23k VIN. I work for a small startup and we're on shaky ground, and the car is just not needed. I picked up a rough shape Model S for a very low price and will use that. I prefer driving the Model 3 100x more. It's...

    What is limiting factor to Model 3 Power Output?

    almost definitely software. The battery is very strong, my calcs put it at or better then the 100kwh pack in the MS, assuming wiring and fuses are up to the task. The cells are a good 50% more power on the same weight/volume basis as the 18650's in the MS/MX. I think there's room in the motor...

    116MPGe has me on the fence, thinking of RWD now

    I assure you the model 3 does do "torque sleep" for the front motor. It's just a matter of turning off switching; really basic feature. The lesser range of the AWD three comes down the the 250 lbs of extra mass and the frictional losses of having that rotor and gears spinning at 10,000 rpm...

    Model 3 Software Updates

    I was wrong I was not pushed the v9. I talked to an acquaintance in service. He tried to push the update to my car. The v9 was not available at all to push to my M3.

    No tow mode because of permanent magnet motor?

    I'm sorry my drawing is not more clear ... But there really is no way having the pack connected will have any effect on protecting the fets. I think you should sit down and carefully draw a voltage across any of the phase legs and you will see that once you exceed 650v you will just get a dead...

    No tow mode because of permanent magnet motor?

    The body diodes wont do anything. If the back emf exceeds 650v, the mosfet will conduct in the forward direction (with a 650v drop) The pack can't help either, since it's a fact that the mosfet will conduct at 650V when it is off. The pack being connected or not wont really make any difference...

    No tow mode because of permanent magnet motor?

    Just the inverter, yes. The motor won't be damaged. You are completely right, if you were traveling at 90mph, and you cut 12v power to the inverter , it would quickly go poof. Exceedingly rare circumstance in practice. This is why field weaking is so uncommon for hobbiest / diy ev projects...

    No tow mode because of permanent magnet motor?

    Is most certainly because of back emf. That you can't tow evs on the drive wheels, that is.

    No tow mode because of permanent magnet motor?

    I assure you the model 3 motor will produce a back emf that exceeds the battery voltage by 50mph, not 150mph.

    How does the Model 3's PMSR Motor generate current during regen?

    The motor is an IPM style just like Nissan leaf and what the Prius has had for almost two decades. There is nothing really special about the design. Tesla marketing. :-) Even Milwaukee power tools use IPM motors these days.

    No tow mode because of permanent magnet motor?

    The model 3 motor BEMF is around 350V at 40mph. This would not be a problem as the inverter MOSFET's will simply block any current flow and 350V is no problem. If it were to be towed at 80mph, the BEMF would hit 700V, and the failure would be catastphic and perhaps even a little spectacular. The...

    FS: 2012 Azure Dynamics Ford Transit Connect (EV CARGO VAN!)

    It's at 1,400 miles. I still drive it everyday, but only live 2 miles from work. One of the BMS module boards is bad, so I parallel all 96 cells. and it runs off the other side BMS. So, it runs on full range except, at the moment: (the van has two completely independent parallel packs from the...

    Left my A/C on MAX for 5 hrs

    This is completely false. The compressor in any car, even a gas car is a highly variable load. Many gas cars use variable displacement compressors. Their load will also change a different pressure drops at the same displacement setting. And electric car ac compressor is even more variable as...

    How can Elon recommend 39 psi for comfort?...

    Yeah definitely annoying I was thinking to tweet at him about this. Should be 35-37 PSI before warning goes off. Oh and make it so the damn warnings can be dismissed. The way it is... kinda ridiculous.
