    Jebinc’s Plaid Vibration Experiment Results!!!

    I think the issue might be play in inner joints, perhaps rollers too small? I had 2 new axles and both have play on them.

    Jebinc’s Plaid Vibration Experiment Results!!!

    I think you are right with the loop bit, bad axle makes more vibration, under load old soft bushing cannot damp it so the axle getting worse, new bushing mitigate that to some extent, but at the point people complain about the vibration its too late to just change the bushing so new axles is a must.

    Jebinc’s Plaid Vibration Experiment Results!!!

    Each rubber bit in the bushings has numbers on them like +17 etc, I think thats stiffness. For reference look at the image, thats the old revision driver side motor mount for pre lift S. It has values between +15 and +17, whereas new revision has +21 to +22.

    Vibration on hard acceleration

    Ok so I had a little thinking about this. I do think the issue must be coming from the fact that the axles are just making non centric rotations thus causing little vibrations, they are unnoticeable and just damped when the bushing are within their working area, but as soon as I hit hard on the...

    Jebinc’s Plaid Vibration Experiment Results!!!

    Possibly they did stiffen it, would be interesting to know the numbers from the rubber and confront it with the previous models versions.

    Jebinc’s Plaid Vibration Experiment Results!!!

    Thats what I did, check out Vibration on hard acceleration where you can find the video from inside, its not plaid but the mechanics are most likely the same. The thing I suspect which is also kinda confirmed with this thread is that on hard acceleration the axles bend to an angle where its...

    Vibration on hard acceleration

    Ok so this has been discussed many times however I want to have an engineering look at it. My Tesla S 2016 P90D pre lift had the shrudder thing, basically driveshafts were broken, fine. So what I have done is I replaced them both, also checked the center bearing for the right half shaft and its...

    High pitch reduced by 7-8db

    Good luck, yea with wool you can put it anywhere, can fill every single hole, one advice though, use face mask when doing it, it spreads lots of tiny chunks when you play with it so not too good to breathe it

    High pitch reduced by 7-8db

    Its been ok, havent seen any issues. Its just regular rock wool, same you use for house roof insulation.

    Tesla S windshield noise fix DIY

    Hey guys, I thought I would share my mod with you. I was experiencing some windshield noise with speeds over 50mph. I did some research and experimented with putting tape over windshield holes around. It fixed it so I came up with solution that you might find interesting. It completely fixes...

    Extra screen project model s

    All connected now. Just need to calibrate it and good to drive.

    Extra screen project model s

    I was thinking of leaving it as it is now, it will still be usable. I actually removed the perpendicular piece that connects both the sliding and rotating covers so that I can access all space more easily with the new screen attached.

    Extra screen project model s

    Getting closer, the addon is almost ready, now just need to install all the 360 cameras and connect it.

    High pitch reduced by 7-8db

    So far so good, not sure about moisture yet but will be installing 360 cameras soon so will inspect it.

    Extra screen project model s

    Hi, While your idea is nice I would rather use metal for the frame as it gives me some freedom in bending its shape or assembling it by simply welding it. I plan to wrap it with CF foil in the end but I was also thinking of making it look nicer by using some polymer clay in between to make it...

    Extra screen project model s

    Hey folks, I am starting new project today. The aim is to have additional screen under main mcu. It shall extend my Tesla with functions like: 3D bird view 360 parking camera system, radar warnings during driving, play store apps etc. My main interest was to have bird view like camera system so...

    High pitch reduced by 7-8db

    Its hydrophobic material meaning it doesnt absorb water so should be ok, will see with time, just installed it today.

    High pitch reduced by 7-8db

    It was driving me nuts but today I have reduced high pitch noise (2.8khz) by around 7-8db as measured by my phone. The solution was to put mineral wool between drive unit and firewall. Not too elegant solution but can be easily done. If you wan to try it make sure water can still go down from...

    Why I returned my 2019 Tesla Model X?

    I got that annoying noise in my P90D when the power added to drive units is around 10-20kw, mostly noticable at around 70-80km/h. Attaching recording screenshoot where you can clearly see the spike is around 2.8khz. People were complaining about this noise in model 3 and the fix was to tighten...

    High pitched noise from drive unit

    Wondering if that noise is actually coming from the speakers. That ground strap would suggest so. I have exactly the same problem (high pitch at 2.8Khz) but with my TMS P90D 2016 pre lift. I have found the front ground strap under frunk but it's tightening doesnt do anything. As far as I can...

    Model S Aftermarket CV Axles - Success!

    Hi SwissPatriotRG, It’s been a year since you swapped your axles, would you be able to give us some update about the quality of these new axles, are they still good? I also get some clunks on hard acceleration and wondering if these ones from rockauto are worth it.

    Grid Monitoring (Charging Speed Lowering) in Home Chargers.

    Hi, I got accelev one phase version and I am doing balancing. I observe that grid monitoring isn't active with balancing? Is that on purpose? I charged with balancing overnight and it went down to 1kw charging and never went up again.

    Broken sunroof, out of warranty, diy?

    Hey guys, just bought a used Tesla S 2016. The sunroof is broken, it doesn't react at all when I move it on the mcu panel. Looks like it's not even attempting to move, I cannot hear anything happening. I checked the fuse and it's ok. Is there any realy or something I should look at? Does it have...
