    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.

    Tire Recommendations for 19x9.5 wheels street and track no commute

    Hello All, I hope this isn't inappropriate as I know these tire discussions can get tiresome. I am lost in terms of tires. Once I think I have picked a tire someone says the weight means that one won't last or another doesn't come in the size I am looking for. I am looking for suggestions for...

    Tesla Podium at Global Time Attack *Video*

    Unplugged Track Beasts! 3 vs Y

    I tracked the 3 and Y in one 15min session. The way the Buttonwillow track is configured you have to do a minimum of 3 complete runs to get a hot lap in (out lap, hot lap, cool down).

    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...
