    Improving brake "feel"

    When I first got the car (Performance), I thought the stock brakes were OK. Nothing extraordinary, but nothing to complain about either. After a visit to the track (2 sessions of 15 minutes), they became the worst brakes I ever experienced, most likely due to glazing. I did add the MPP brace...

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

    I run XP20 front and XP12 rear (on the MPP BBK). After bedding in (no track day yet on them), they developed a mild whistle when braking. I have no problem running them like this on the street. As already mentioned on this thread, with hold mode, I rarely use the brake in the city, and even when...

    Model 3 Long Range 2021 refresh 19" wheels [question about lowering or spacers]

    Beautiful. Do you have any rear camber adjustment?

    Please help on abnormal tire wear (Track). Thanks!

    No problem at all removing the wheels with the hub centric rings. I could only source plastic ones in that size when I got the wheels and I expected them to melt, so I got 2 sets of 10 for good measure. After 3 track days, I'm still using the original 4 plastic rings. And I was using the brakes...

    Please help on abnormal tire wear (Track). Thanks!

    If you're going to get a dedicated set of wheels for the track (which is ideal), go with a track dedicated tire. Cup 2 is a great tire, but Michelin made compromises with it to make it work for street as well. If you only have 1 set of wheels, Cup 2 is a good compromise, but for track wheels...

    Please help on abnormal tire wear (Track). Thanks!

    Definitely get alignment checked after replacing the tires. You passenger front (which is rotated in the photo) also shows sign of heavy inside wear. Your inner tire wear looks a lot like what I had here M3P front inside tire wear In my case, the cause was bad toe, with no track use on the...

    Raybestos Track Pads for Model 3

    What track pad setup front/rear would you recommend the MPP BBKs (StopTech caliper front, and thicker rotor with clamshell in the rear), on wider stickier tires (265 mm AR-1)? ST43 front and rear, or XP12 front and rear?

    Upgraded To Performance Brakes

    Confirmed with a test fit. The front MPP BBK Stoptech calipers fit over the 18" aeros with tight clearance (but enough for my comfort). I did the test mount with the stock rotors (was not ready to cut the dust shield just yet). I expect the spokes to have even more room with the thicker hat...

    Upgraded To Performance Brakes

    Great, thanks for the confirmation. I already took care of the rear calipers (grinding and red caliper paint) and have the 18" aeros on for the winter.

    Upgraded To Performance Brakes

    Looks nice. How much clearance do you have to the wheel barrel? I ordered a set, and it would be great if the 18 aeros cleared the calipers, for efficiency and other reasons, even if it’s a tight fit. MPP description states they don’t fit.

    Matching LR AWD efficiency in P3D+

    I put 18" aero on my performance. Did not need to add spacers because the new versions of the 18" wheels from Tesla came machined to account for the hub lip, but I did need to grind the rear calipers. See Will 18" Aero wheel fit a car with Performance big brakes? I put Continental...

    M3P front inside tire wear

    Installed new tires and got an alignment. As expected, toe was way off.

    M3P front inside tire wear

    This weekend when swapping the wheels to my Model 3 I noticed extreme wear to the inside of the front tires. Is this an alignment issue or something else? Context: - Wheels and tires are original 20" performance PS4S - Tires have 25,000 km on them, mostly highway - Issue occurred in...

    Will 18" Aero wheel fit a car with Performance big brakes?

    I bought a new set of 18” Aeros from Tesla Switzerland for my M3P and to my surprise they were machined to accommodate for the hub lip. Ended up installing them without spacers, just the grinding of the rear callipers.

    Carbotech Performance Brake Pads for Model 3 - Review

    After putting a generous amount of brake anti-squeal paste on the back of the pad (Liqui Moly 20240, I don't have access to CRC), I don't hear the rattle anymore when driving. I have a track day coming up in 10 days, I hope this will withstand the track abuse.

    Carbotech Performance Brake Pads for Model 3 - Review

    Upon further inspection, there's a lot of play in the pad that goes in the caliper: Carbotech XP12 Tesla M3P rear (with sound) Not all 4 rear pads are exactly the same - some fit more snugly than other. I put the pads the fit the tightest in the calipers (not the one in the video above), but...

    Possibly. Thanks for all for all of the feedback. I'll re-install in the upcoming days and pay closer attention to the pads seating.

    Carbotech Performance Brake Pads for Model 3 - Review

    Did you experience any rattle / clunking noise from the pads? I installed a set of XP12 in the rear and after an hour of spirited driving I started hearing some clunking noise from the rear right side. While drive back home, the clunking intensified, and sounded almost like a drive unit issue...

    Installed my tablet on a dash mount

    I tried Torque Pro today and it put the car in limp mode (acceleration reduced warning) when scanning for protocols. I am using the ODBLink LX with the GPSTrackingAmerica ODB2 harness on a 2020 M3P. ScanMyTesla works without issues.

    Do you need a PID mapping file for Torque?

    Blocking or covering the air vent output?

    I also need this, for the exact same reason.

    Installed my tablet on a dash mount

    Before adding the 2 velcro strips, it would shake a little bit when driving on rough roads. With the 2 velcro strips, it does not at one, it's on with the dash.

    Installed my tablet on a dash mount

    I have a similar setup, with a Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2019) 8" and the Steelie ize car mount kit. Instead of the typical setup, I decided to stick the large ball on the tablet and to put the small ring on the car. This way, it's a bit more discrete when I remove the tablet. I also added some...

    Any experience with Nankang AR-1?

    I have a set of AR-1's mounted, in the same size as yours (265/35 R19), just waiting for the tracks to open in my neck of the woods.

    Track Tire/wheel Set Advice

    Thanks for the suggestion - rears clear the Dekagram 19x9.5 Profile B with room to spare. I don't have the tires mounted yet. Here's the test-fit photo in a poorly lit environment (the white lip is just plastic for protection during transport).

    Track Tire/wheel Set Advice

    I reluctantly order a set of Dekagram 19x9.5 Profile B - finally test fitted them this morning, and they do clear the front calipers, just barely, with around 5mm space between the spokes and the caliper.

    Track Tire/wheel Set Advice

    Quoted wrong picture. Here's the photo from destructure00 which makes me think profile B (less concave) should clear caliper.

    Track Tire/wheel Set Advice

    Hi, I'd like to get the Dekagram 19x9.5 B DKB9514355 (for reduced weight and the availability to ship internationally) but can't figure out how the less concave profile looks. From the detailed photos posted by destructure00 (thank you), it looks that the spokes should clear even if they were...
