    I was under the impression that he uses a stand alone ecu to help control the motor.

    That was for his Lotus project which he grafted a Model S motor into.

    Do you mean an ABS sensor? I can't imagine why a tire pressure sensor would have anything to do with any stability control systems.

    I’ll have to dig up the sources again but I believe if you unplug the ABS the power steering goes as well. I think that was from a YouTube vid highlighting the upcoming mountain pass performance mods.

    I believe the TPMS bit was from a comment on that video.

    @MountainPass Are you going to be releasing something to dial back the stability control for other people purchase? What is it going to take? Hardware install, sensor change, etc.?

    Hey guys,

    We are working on a module right now that will plug in and allow you to fault the stability control system with the flip of a switch. The system would then revert back to normal operation upon reset of the drive unit (parking and opening the charge door for example).

    Traction control will still be active with this method, but with the stability control off you can get fully sideways as long as you do it without power :)

    I love what you guys are doing.
    I can't wait for that module. I did an autocross recently and would have loved to have that tool.

    Any ETA on when it will be available for sale?

    There's probably a sensor (gyro / acceleromoter ) or a fuse you can pull to defeat stability and leave ABS intact.

    Stability sensors are usually found near the center line going down the middle of the car, under dash.

    Yes, we are sourcing OEM connectors to ensure plug and play compatibility.

    No fuses in this car. The accelerometer(s) is(are) probably integrated into a circuit board somewhere but maybe I'm wrong. Sounds like Mountain Pass will have some good news for us soon.
