    Vendor GiroDisc 370mm Rotors for GM Brembo 6-Pot Calipers

    It takes a village to raise a kit. This one is TMC's very own. @Lukez pioneered the 6-piston CTS-V DIY for the Model S. Then @jesse_le prototyped a rotor with GiroDisc for the Model 3 and Y. These full-floating slotted GiroDisc rotors for the Model 3 and Y come in at 370mm x 34mm. This mirrors...

    Vendor G-LOC Track and Autocross Brake Pads for Model 3

    Hi y'all. Long time lurker here, and now glad to finally be a part of this community. I consider myself a lucky one out of the bunch, given that my Plaid (Oct 21 delivery) hasn't given me any major issues... until now, seemingly. This post will be detailed, and I hope it will either a)...

    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?

    I'm asking here instead of directly to Tesla because their only Contact Us options were for solar roofs or calling a store and neither of them knows.... While test driving the Model Y I noticed the regenerative braking was pretty aggressive. I called the sales person from the car to ask if I...

    Overzealous ABS While Cornering

    Hey folks, I'm experiencing some odd behavior with my Model 3 Performance's brakes. Yesterday while exiting the highway on a clover-leaf offramp, I lightly hit the brakes and the ABS intervened to the extent that the brakes barely engaged. I came in pretty hot, but nothing out of the ordinary...

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

    Hi everyone, I'm currently considering the M3 LR since I'd definitely get wheel/tire damage with the 20" wheels where I live (Boston). I'm thinking of the 18" aero wheels, and perhaps switching the wheel covers for the orbital covers! There's also a $2,500 rebate for EVs under 50k in...

    Model 3 front Brembo Loaded Calipers NY

    I have a set of Brembo front brake calipers for a Tesla Model 3. Comes loaded with pads, no brake lines. For some reason the previous owner decided to paint them lime green. They came off my friends car. He got red calipers instead of repainting these. They are in perfect working order. Asking...

    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...

    Awful loud scraping noise coming from tire/brake

    Hey guys. Yesterday I noticed an awful high pitch scraping noise coming from the right tire/brake in the back. Especially distinct when backing up and at low speeds.

    Rhythmic rubbing/griding noise from brakes

    No, it's not a pebble ;) M3 performance with 10k miles. Any time the car is moving, I can hear a grinding, or rubbing noise from my front driver's side. I can hear it from inside the car while driving if it's quiet, but it's of course much more noticeable with the windows down, driving near...

    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...

    Horrendous brake feel

    Stock brakes on the M3 standard RWD feel horrendous. Non-linear feel, inspires trepidation rather than confidence. They feel like really cold racing brakes. Even my wife commented on this. Hasn't gotten any better in 1mo of ownership. I saw other threads on this but no solutions. Is this...
