    Supercharger Voting Round 2

    Why cannot we directly label locations and cast vote? Most of the locations are not helpful anyway. We need some SCs along the Kirkland-Newcastle I-405 side. One SC in Bellevue compared to 5 SCs in Seattle side is obviously out of balance, I-5 is already overcrowded! Also want the Enumclaw SC...

    Why they always choose to start building new superchargers in winter? Seems like most of the summer time are wasted.

    Vendor Model 3 Race Build Update- Unplugged Performance

    We see your Plaid S race car with Randy’s name on it. Will you bring both S and 3 to Pikes Peak? Looking forward to see if Plaid can break some record, and how it runs compared to 3.

    Issue after 2021.4.18.2 update - Autopilot not available

    Seems this to be a problem occurred during update installation. Not solvable by reboot or power off. Opened a service request and they push me the same firmware again. Everything seems recovered after re-update to the same 4.18.2 version.

    Issue after 2021.4.18.2 update - Autopilot not available

    It’s weird because all the visualization stuff works fine. The cameras are working, the car recognizes all the lanes and objects it should do. But the grey tiny steering wheel never appears… No luck when I tried to start autopilot it always report “Cruise control not available”. Don’t have...

    Model 3 Tires, Tire Sizes, Types, make / model recommendations, tire discussions, etc

    Model 3 Tires, Tire Sizes, Types, make / model recommendations, tire discussions, etc

    My RE71R’s are close to their end and I heard they are discontinued. Looking for a replacement and GYSC3 seems to be the people’s choice. Anyone had any chance ran them on combined road/track/autocross experience? I can handle my 71r pretty good in rain on highway but not sure if GYSC3 is...

    Supercharger - Seattle, WA - NE Northgate Way

    Definitely not that much. Wednesday morning I went there 9am, forgot to turn on the navigation so no pre-heating, and got 82kw at 40%.

    Creaking sound from left front suspension

    I heard a lot of owners in China complaining about the same problem. They have very good shape roads, so roads are not the cause.

    M3P owners: Anyone tried remove rear sway bar?

    So I found my alignment, camber front -1.15 rear -1.3, toe front 1.7mm rear 2mm. I may not go that far to -3/-2, but probably need more front camber? Do I need MPP adjustable FUCA to get -1.5 front?

    M3P owners: Anyone tried remove rear sway bar?

    I have MPP sport coilovers and OEM sway bar on my M3P. In my few track and autocross experience, I feel it quite easy to spin. Either too much throttle, or too much regen will lose my rear traction. I have a square setup of tires. Someone told me removing the rear sway bar will make the rear...

    Washington SB 5444 - to impose a mileage tax on owners of electric and hybrid vehicles

    Well technically I would prefer to collect that when you dispose those tires. Because that’s when you prove “I have worn that much to the roads”. If those tires are disposed because they were nailed/stabbed/anything accidental, the charge would be reduced according to remaining tread depth...

    Washington SB 5444 - to impose a mileage tax on owners of electric and hybrid vehicles

    Why don’t we charge tire tax instead of gas tax? All vehicle use tires, no matter what powers it. Also heavier trucks use lots of tires, so they would pay much more tax. Better than flat tax or GPS tracking.

    That’s weird, if this closure is caused by recent power outage then EA chargers should not work.

    External speaker retrofit to enable boombox on 2018 car?

    External speaker retrofit to enable boombox on 2018 car?

    Is that possible? Getting a speaker should not be that hard. Besides that, what I know is 2018 car has those drill-throughs on the front bottom plate for speaker. So I would assume on the other side there also exists some means to hold the speaker. The only problems are, is it simple to connect...

    Supercharger - Seattle, WA - Ballard Way

    One more thing interesting is when I arrived there were two cars charging, and 6 spots available on the nav, that’s fine. Then when I plugged in, there were 3 cars charging in total, but only 2 spots available on the nav. Phantom SC occupation seems to be a problem.

    Engineering Explained- wheel size effects on electric cars

    I think the 20-inch track package wheels are worse in range just because the compound of Cup2 is super sticky. 18inch wheels with same width Cup2 will have same range.

    Which carbotech pad compound?

    I’m running XP10, braking on street works pretty OK.

    PS4s => P zero for new performance model 3

    On Pirelli website I found PZ4 noted “Tesla” in it’s OEM brands. So it’s run flat? Also remember there was a thread about PZ4 side walls not strong enough for model 3.

    PS4s => P zero for new performance model 3

    I don’t think the refreshed model 3 will have different cell modules. The 4680 cell has not been mass produced yet. If the 0.1s is not from the tyres, then there must be some firmware update making this.

    PS4s => P zero for new performance model 3

    Also noticed 3.2s => 3.1s 0-60 time change. Not sure if these two are related. I’m a little confused about P0 series, how many different compounds do they have? I know PS4s has the best reputation for wet performance. Is P0 better in dry conditions?

    At least this one will be faster than Auburn, 250kw vs 150kw.

    Use brake pedal for regen?

    This is what making Tesla so unique from others. I believe one day we will have 100% regen so strong that we no longer need friction brakes. Then we can consider true one pedal car. Before that just put the friction brake on the left so there is always some backup.

    Model S Plaid

    According to the driver’s youtube channel, it will come with Cup2 special gum very similar to Cup2R tires. The platform is totally different from Raven S. Handling like a Model 3 in corners. It also has a Model 3 steering wheel. So yes, I believe it will be on new architecture, die cast...

    Model S Plaid

    I have the similar concern. Don’t believe the current S with only powertrain swap can reach 1:30 on Laguna Seca. The Nurburgring one has a ton of custom modifications, like carbon ceramic brakes and wide body with huge opening... If this is a preorder page like cybertruck and roadster 2, I will...

    LSD (limited slip differential) anyone?

    I suppose they migrated it from some ICE car. So is it designed to handle the electric motor’s massive instant torque?
