    RWD in Snow

    One of my friend is planning to purchase Model 3 SR. He has concerns with RWD performance in Snow, as he has always owned AWD cars. I did tell him my experience that I never had issues with RWD even without snow tires, although I drive very less. Has any other RWD owners faced issues in New...

    Ride Quality - Tesla Y RWD vs AWD

    There is a 500 lbs weight reduction from the AWD version (4,416 lbs) to the RWD version (3,920 lbs). For those who have driven both versions, does the RWD have a noticeable better ride quality?

    Any rumors on when MY RWD might be released in USA

    Hi all, I am one of those people that signed up for the MY RWD (I did not care about AWD and wanted the extra range). Anyway, the rumor mill has been pretty quiet on the potential release date since the company said it would release in “a few months”. back in July. Just wondering if I am...

    RWD 3-row Model Y order cancelled by Tesla

    I got a text over the weekend saying that the preorder for my configuration, a RWD 3-row Model Y, will be cancelled due to it not being available until 2022. Anyone else get something like this? On my Tesla account, it says that my preorder has been cancelled and the refund is in the works...

    Tire size issues. RWD Model 3 LR

    Hi all, I purchased after market wheel for my RWD M3 and been having some trouble with some tire installers like Discount Tires who mention that the size of the tire I am choosing is incorrect. I'm moving from my stock 18" aero wheel to 235/35/20 front and rear. Apparently these wheels do not...

    (Lack of) Track Mode Blues

    Feeling down in the dumps because all the cool kids have the Performance Model 3 with Track Mode V2 while you're riding around with slip start? Maybe you've tried out Dyno mode and ended up in a ditch or spun around doing donuts. But, what can you do to actually get better lap times? Well...

    LR RWD Range Increase

    Now that the AWD’s range is approximately the same as the RWD version, the order page on the Tesla RWD account’s mileage indicates “NaNmi”. I would guess that to mean “Not available ? mileage”. Does anyone have a better guess at what Tesla is trying to communicate?

    0-60 MPH test of LR RWD on 2019.36.2.1

    A very rudimentary test of the new power increase using an online stopwatch and slow motion video. Conditions were wet and cold (41F) and the battery was a little cold too. The only preconditioning was a 20 minute top-off charge about 15 minutes prior. It slipped slightly on launch. I’ll run...

    Back to School

    Attended the Alfa Romeo club's advanced time-trial school over the weekend at the Streets of Willow. The instructors and events were great & we got tons of track time. Charging was more of an issue than I was hoping it would be, but I was able to make it work. (caution - the video is crazy...

    SCCA Autocross

I had planned to do some runs with stock traction control, and compare them against runs using MPP Party Box VSC defeat device. I quickly found that it...

    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...

    LR AWD AP vs. LR RWD FSD (April 2019)

    Do you regret buying a RWD Model S?

    Morning all, I did some searching but couldn't see a perfect answer. I am looking at buying a used Model S and have seen a RWD car in almost perfect spec, but I am concerned that I would regret holding out for an AWD, even though never needed AWD in the UK before and current cars are RWD only...

    Waiting for M3 LR RWD in the Netherlands

    Living in the Netherlands, I have waiting (reservation) since beginning 2018. Maybe, with some luck, I will become a Tesla owner some day.

    Model 3 RWD: Frunk Replacement for more Storage

    Has anyone come across any companies making bigger frunk liners for more storage capacity on the Model 3 RWD? I know there's a huge open cavity under the frunk since there's no front Motor, and Tesla wanted to keep manufacturing changes to a minimum between the two models. I'd really like to...

    Help me decide: RWD or AWD? $8,000 difference!

    I priced out a RWD and AWD with similar options. RWD: $58,000 out the door incl taxes, fees. AWD: $66,000 out the door incl. taxes, fees. AWD costs roughly ~8,000 more. I drove the AWD on my test drive and thought it was ridiculously FAST - although I loved that, I'd be happy with even...

    Ideal travel speed in RWD?

    Has anyone done or could help with this analysis? What is the fastest speed we should use on m3 to get somewhere far (1000+ miles) while using only superchargers to charge up in order to get somewhere in the shortest amount of time? I.e. driving 90 mph in m3, battery loses about 30% so it...

    Dual motor vs. RWD in winter driving.

    I haven't been able to find a good thread on this subject even though I'm sure it exists. Does the extra costs warrant the getting a car with dual motors??? My main concern for getting Dual Motors would be winter handling but I'm unsure of the extra cost? What is your experience/thoughts?
