    Accelerating when braking?

    My wife drove our Y into another car which was parked opposite the space she was intending to use. She insists her foot didn’t slip off the brake and onto the accelerator and was so upset that I believe her. Is this a known problem? I intend to have the car checked by Tesla but would like to...

    Test drove 2016 Model S P100D; Surprised by sluggish acceleration and weak regenerative braking.

    Hello, 2019 Model 3 Long Range (acceleration boost) owner here. I want to trade my Model 3 for a 2016 Model S P100D. I test drove a vehicle last weekend and the acceleration was much weaker than I expected. The car has been on the lot for 80-odd days and was at 50% charge. The car felt heavy and...

    Hankook iON EVO AS acceleration testing

    I had to switch to all season tires recently. I decided to get the Hankook iON EVO AS tires because they offer great tread life, exceptional efficiency, and they are cheap. However, I was expecting a severe hit to acceleration because everyone kept telling me that all season tires have terrible...

    Slower Acceleration and weird behaviour 2020 Model 3 SR+

    Question for 2019/2020 Model 3 SR+ Owners I have a 2020 (Purchased Dec 2019) with about 118,000kms (74,000mi) on the odometer. I’ve noticed the acceleration reduce quite a bit in comparison to my early 2021 build. Only differences are Michelin Radial X tires (80% tred) on the 2020 and mileage...

    23M3P - Burning and/or Overheating Electric Smell During High Performance Driving

    I have a relatively new (~3000 miles) Model 3 Performance. I was aggressive on the accelerator for a solid 20-30 seconds today (wasn't flooring it but close) and a few seconds after I let off the pedal, a distinct smell of overheating electronics (possibly burning?) started filling the car. If...

    Clicking sound from rear when accelerating or regen decelerating

    I've noticed in the last several months that my 2013 Tesla Model S 60 is making metallic a single click sound from the rear of the car whenever transitioning from acceleration to deceleration or vice verse. It was most noticeable when starting from a stop during the initial acceleration and the...

    TIL: Plaid acceleration mode continually conditions battery and affects HVAC?

    I was looking at the owners manual for something and this piece about acceleration mode and energy consumption/efficiency caught my eye. I didn't know Plaid mode put the car into a different state. I've always kept acceleration mode on Plaid and wondered why even in stop-and-go traffic I cannot...

    Tow hitch, does it affect acceleration or range?

    I accidentally ordered a factory-installed tow hitch for my MYLR. The tow bar system weights around 30kg (65 lbs), according to some specs (not sure if that is accurate). Does the existence of the tow bar affect range, performance or acceleration, without towing and without having the trailer...

    Quick Throttle Bursts

    We were listening to some music, when I decided to spam the throttle to the beat. It was a couple quick full presses of the throttle, so the car looked like it was bouncing on the road. Does this negatively effect the car in any way? Pretty fun rocking back & worth because of the huge amount...

    M3 Performance - Traction control on hard acceleration

    I have a 2022 Model 3 performance, with Pirelli P Zero tyres. It's done around 1050 miles so tyres are all new still. If the road is not 100% dry, if I floor the accelerator down from stopped, the traction control comes on almost all the time. The icon is displayed and it limits the...

    Most will hate this question...[is there a way to play exhaust sounds when I accelerate?]

    All my life I've owned muscle cars, and made the switch to my M3 AWD a few months ago. Everything is perfect, however I'm missing the exhaust sounds of my old cars. Is there an app/program I can open that will play exhaust sounds as I accelerate?? There are some on the App Store but they are...

    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...

    Acceleration of my MYLR

    I’m not sure but I feel the acceleration of my new MYLR 7 seater is way faster than claimed 4.8 sec. I’ve owned few fast cars before but MYLR is on a new level. When I punch it off the line at the red light, I’m going 80 before I can even register my speed. Did I get an extra strong example? Or...

    Acceleration boost upgrade, no software update needed?

    This evening, I decided to take the plunge, and purchased the acceleration boost upgrade on my phone for my 2022 M3LR. For context, my vehicle sits in my apartment building’s parking garage (no Wi-Fi). When a software update is needed I typically let the car take care of itself while I’m at work...

    Tesla Refreshed S Review

    Tesla Refreshed S Review I’ve read a lot of « fair and comprehensive » reports of the refreshed Tesla S & Plaid. To me these reports are mostly missing a key factor — FUN. Driving the updated S with yoke steering plus all the bells & whistles is freaking FUN. I haven’t enjoyed driving a car...

    Ingenext Boost 50 / OEM Acceleration Upgrade Comparison Video

    Hello all! I am considering putting together a comparison video that pits the Ingenext Boost 50 module against the OEM Acceleration Upgrade. This would require a pretty significant time and capital investment. So, I am wondering if you all think it might provide value. Let me know what you...

    Plaid is slow on highspeed.

    Tesla Model S Plaid is often referred to as the fastest pruduction vehicle in the world. But I doubt it Is there anybody who can do the accelaration test to 250-300km/h ? I can't seem to find the data of 0-300km/h time of Plaid. I think it's because the acceleration from 250 to 300km is slow...

    Make the Model Y Performance ~Quicker~

    Hello all, Owner of a 2021 Model Y Performance here. I'm wondering if anyone has found out; how can the MYP be made quicker? I understand the car is blazingly quick, and many will question why more speed and rapid acceleration are needed. But, I believe the MYP should be able to outperform...

    Tesla Plaid toying with other high performance cars on the dragstrip whilst trying not to get kicked off

    Here's the main video: I think there ***may*** come a time when watching the Plaid win all these races becomes monotonous and predictable, but today is not that day. The whole video is worth a watch, but for the impatient below, I linked just the races. For those not in the know, the ET...

    Infotainment upgrade hurt acceleration and suspension

    Upgraded from MCU1 to MCU2 on a 2017 Model S 90D. Good news? We have Netflix and Sentry Mode! Bad news? Acceleration is slow off a traffic light stop and the smart air suspension is now bumpy and wobbly. Before the upgrade the acceleration was fast and the smart air suspension was like riding...

    What’s this sound every time I accelerate? Service has no idea so far and says it’s not normal.

    two recordings I made :). Been driving me nuts and ruining my performance model 3 experience! it‘s super loud and it’s NOT the speed limit warning :)

    Sound while accelerating

    I have been driving the Model 3 for about 1.5 yrs. I have recently experienced a humming sound while accelerating the car that is akin to the engines revving up before airplanes start the takeoff on a runway; the sound is way lower but is irritating. At higher speeds, I don't hear it but that...

    Model Y LR and Performance Test-Drive Review

    I test drove the MY LR 7 Seater earlier, and now I've just finished an overnight test drive of the MYP! I drove around casually but also tried to push the car to see how it might do in more performance oriented driving, as I typically take my car to the track 1-2 times a year. My thoughts...

    I tried "Launch Mode" for the first time today.

    I've had Tessie for 11 months. Never have I tried Launch Mode. I've done a lot of acceleration runs without it, but today was different. I printed out the instructions then drove to a lonely desert road. What follows is what I posted earlier on a local car enthusiast website: Tesla's "Ludicrous...

    Noise from passenger front door - like a loose nut in door

    This noise sounds like a nut that is loose in the door. I doubt there is a nut that is loose in there, but it's just to explain what it sounds like. I hear a "knock" when I accelerate or decelerate. If I accelerate/brake very slowly, the noise doesn't happen. But if I drive normally, at every...

    Autopilot Acceleration too rapid

    Any advice on any settings to change? In traffic, car waits for other in front to take off. There is some delay and then it launches after the other cars and 80% of time it then needs to brake... Exactly the same in ‘Chill Mode’ almost as if it ignores on Autopilot.

    Safe acceleration

    In the interest of doing safe & legal accelerations, I was wondering if you can ask the car to stop a hard acceleration at 5 over the speed limit. It happens so fast it would be easy to go over without a little help!

    Grinding sound under acceleration while heavily loaded

    Are any other Model X owners experiencing a grinding noise under acceleration? This 2019 Model X is my second (previous was a 2016) and I am familiar with the long time shudder/clunking noise during acceleration. This is definitively not that sound. Definitely a grinding and only while the...

    Accelerator pressed : cruise will not brake when pedal isn’t pressed

    So here’s a new one. 2019.36.2.1 AP1 last few days has popped up a message “accelerator pressed, cruise will not brake”, which I’m used to seeing if I actually accelerate on autopilot, but this time I’m not pressing either pedal. The first time it happened, I instinctively pressed the...

    Acceleration limitations on MXM4 tires for dual motor?

    Lately I've been watching my screen during launches from a stop and noticed I'm not getting max acceleration with the bar only reaching about ~80% for the first second. Acceleration feels same as before though I haven't always been watching the screen so not sure if this is recent or not. I...

    Scary acceleration, how to reduce?

    I use NOA a lot, MadMax, very happy with it, keeps getting better. I also use AS/TACC on surface roads/streets whenever the context is right. I've gotten good at popping in and out of AS. It's great. My issue is a rather brutal acceleration style I find nerve-wracking. It's e.g. annoying in...

    What would you pay for more unlocked acceleration?

    Let's say Tesla can actually unlock more speed for the M3P, and likely the slower models as well. What would you pay for a .5 second faster 0-60 time? I would kill for more jerk off the line as well. Elon, are you there? Take my money! As a side note, would you give up even more range for...

    Does anyone else feel like the first 0-10mph are limited in the M3P?

    The jerk/torque at 20-50mph is fantastic. I just love it. However, I feel like they are artificially controlling this power at 0-10mph or so. The car just doesn't jerk right off the line like I thought it would. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Pre-Facelift 90D Performance

    Hi all - Does anyone have information about pre-facelift 2016 90D performance numbers ? I'm seeing some conflicting information about whether the acceleration and range of the 90D was always 0-60 in 4.2s and 294 miles, or if that higher performance only came into being with the mid-2016...

    New Ownership Impressions and Advice

    I love the car, it's faster than expected. Solidly built. Intuitive, if you play with the menu screen while it's parked first. Definitely needs a home charging station installed (at least a 240V plug). Here's a detailed review after picking up the 2018 Model 3, and the first 300 miles driven...

    Uncorked 100D beats P100D in sports mode

    To my big surprise, the uncorked 100D beats the P100D in sport mode. Would expect the same results at least. But maybe the cars are set up the same, but the weight difference plays a role... But at least I got payback as well :-D (test was done under controlled circumstances. Do not try to...

    0-60 in 4.3 seconds on new RWD Model S

    Waiting for get delivery of my Model S RWD 75 next week. The 0-60 specs are 4.3 seconds on this car and I was wondering if that is reasonable - given that its a RWD and might lose traction if floored. Can't wait to try it myself, but wondering if anyone who has the newer spec'ed Model S can...

    How to get P85 to full power

    Hi everyone. I have a CPO 2013 P85 that I took delivery of this past Tuesday. Just putting the pedal to the floor and testing the acceleration, it definitely does not feel much faster than a regular 85. 0-60 appears to be well over 5 seconds, just by counting while watching the speed. I haven't...

    Acceleration and performance of the X75D compared to a 2014 S85?

    Picking up a X75D on Saturday to replace our 2014 S85 (pre-AP, RWD), and I just now started wondering if the X75D will feel slower than our old car. 0-60 and 0-100 are listed as slower than our old car, but I also there was some issues with these numbers back in 2014 so I'm not quite sure if the...
