    Plug and play carbon ceramic rotors without big brake upgrade?

    Has anyone found any carbon ceramic brake rotor upgrades without having to upgrade to the big brake it? I have a 2012-2020 generation Model S and am thinking about getting lighter rotors for better range and performance.

    Can anyone please confirm (or deny) whether a bang-like noise from the brakes would be heard when the Automatic Emergency Braking system engages at very low speeds (Model 3)? For example, when the car rolls slightly at traffic lights and a pedestrian rushes towards it, or when it is reversing...

    Dirt Roads and Salt Brine: Rusted 2 Y.O. Model Y Rear Brake Lines in New Hampshire

    Hello All, I have a 2020 Model Y that I drive up in fairly rural New Hampshire - part of my road is dirt, and I drive regularly on roads that are treated with brine including I-89. When I went to get my car inspected, the mechanic pointed out my rusted (to the point of near failure) rear brake...

    Car Wash Mode: The Requirement to Apply Brake to Access Free Roll/Drive is Dangerous

    When in Car Wash Mode, we should be able to put the car back into drive from neutral/free roll without applying the brakes first at the end. For automatic car washes where you're on a conveyor belt with a car staged directly behind you, the last thing you want to do is engage the brakes at any...

    Brake Shuddering

    ‘17 MS 100D with front brake shuddering. The front pads were replaced last year before I bought it. I have put about 10k miles on it and they are shuddering again. I would think if the rotors were warped the charging of the pads would not have solved the initial issue. Anyone else have the same...

    Phantom Braking Needs to be Reported and Fixed

    Yeah, it's bad. I'll be cruising along at 70 mph and my Model Y sees a yellow caution sign with flashing lights and hits the brakes. I push the camera icon to report each incident. Not sure how much that helps, if at all.

    PSA: Bed in your brakes

    I took delivery of my Model Y in December. Overwhelmingly, I have been using regen for one-pedal driving so naturally, the brakes haven’t seen much use. So, imagine my surprise when I, using some of the Model Y’s many horsepowers, needed to use some brakes and she did NOT want to stop...

    Why did Tesla remove option to disable regenerative braking?

    Model 3 LR vs Performance for 1-2 track days a year

    Concerns over Model 3 Performance brakes efficiency. How good is it? After market brakes?

    Hi I had a great opportunity to buy a brand-new model 3 performance from someone else. Apparently, he needs that money for his business. The car is arriving mid-late next month. Despite ordering the Performance model, I’ve never driven it. I’ve ridden in it. It was amazingly quick as my head...

    Conflicting parking brake failure messages

    In the past few days, my 2015 Model S has displayed two messages I had never seen before. The first time, it said the parking brake did not engage when I parked it, and warned that the car might roll away. This struck me as curious because I would think that the PARK feature would hold it in...
