    Model Y on the track

    I couldn't find a thread about track time and racing in general on Model Y. Is anyone else using Model Y Performance for autocross or lapping? On our local autocross events there are multiple Model 3s - one is always 1st/2nd, another two are usually in top 10 (out of 80 cars). I don't feel...

    Racing a bunch of FSD cars on a track

    I would love to see a bunch of FSD cars racing on a track. But I have questions: 1. How would they behave? 2. Could they "learn" track etiquette? 3. How fast would/could they go? 4. Could they eventually be able to drive a track better/faster than a human driver? 5. How many accidents would...

    FS: (4) 19" Advan Racing GT Beyond wheels w/tires and TPMS (SF Bay Area)

    Originally bought these to use as a second, track-focused wheel setup for my 2021 M3P but I'm moving up to Central Oregon soon and will have more use for a winter-focused second set, so I'm selling them. These wheels only have about 100 miles on them with zero track use, so they're essentially...

    Plaid roll racing

    I see a bunch of threads on drag racing the plaid, but I want to know what is the best setting for roll racing in it. Back when I had the model 3, I would use track mode, and put it in rear wheel drive. For some reason the RWD track mode on that car was faster for me than AWD so I’m wondering if...

    Racing Brake XT910 Brake Pad Upgrade For M3P

    Well here goes my first ever post, so go easy on me 😅. I just swapped out the stock P3D pads for the Racing Brake XT910 pads, and I cant believe I didn't do it sooner. Living in Ontario, Canada, one of my worries was how they would perform in the cold weather, but so far there are no downsides...

    Tips on drag racing your Model S Plaid...on the track.

    For those who have not yet experienced what it’s like to be on a drag strip with your MS Plaid, this post is for you. Most big US drag strips operate under rules of the National Hot Rod Association, which is fine unless you drive a really quick, unmodified (stock) electric car. The Plaid can...

    Taller Diameter Wheel or Smaller Diameter Wheel?

    Without overcomplicating this thread, I've heard Tesla's "like" a taller diameter wheel, they would rather a 20" or 19" then a 18" or 17". I know with regular ICE vehicles the size of the wheel can affect gearing, since we don't have gears how does it work for us? To set the line I use my Tesla...

    Tesla Podium at Global Time Attack *Video*

    Happy to report my 2nd place podium at Global Time Attack at Buttonwillow. I competed in Enthusiast class which limited my setup but was still a great challenge. My tires were one of the biggest limiting factors. I was restricted to 255 with a minimum 220 tread wear. I also needed to include all...

    Unplugged P3D vs GT3 RS

    Given that I do have a heavily modded P3D with Unplugged suspension, BFB brake kit, track wheels with 315's, etc.. ). I think I could hang with a GT3 RS. I have found myself tracking with these guys on multiple occasions. Turns seem to be no issue and I can actually put pressure on them. The...

    Brainstorming of race seat build for Model 3

    I was recently actively defending that for dual-use purpose Model 3 doesn't need more than Schroth Quick Fit 4 point harness. While it tremendously better keeps your ass and allows you to turn a wheel instead of holding to it, it's not really helping you to properly feel what happens with a car...

    Hi. I am really interested in getting into racing and was wondering if there was any track that allowed a beginner in a stock car to go on the track and race.(beginner 17 years old.) I know its definitely not the best idea in a stock car that isn't as fast as the rest of the lineup, but do you...

    I hit the drag strip again last night - new personal best!

    I decided on the spur of the moment to head out to the strip to see what effects the warmer weather and lighter wheels might have compared to when I ran in March. It was a typical "Test 'n Tune", and pretty busy overall considering that it was mid-week. Lots of "Murrican" muscle, both old and...

    Model 3 in motorsports?

    In my opinion, it''ll be a few years before Tesla can focus on anything besides the Gigafactory and 3, but a certain poster got me thinking about EVs and motorsports. I think the Model S is a a little on the heavy side for competition, but I can see a stripped down Al/Carbon fiber "Model 3"...
