    Ok so it definitely feels like my car is faster now with this new update because I'm breaking the tires loose a lot more often now. Anyone else experiencing this too? I have the 18" aeros and it's making me kinda wanna get a grippier tire once these need to be replaced. Which could be soon if I keep driving like this lol.

    Edit: Just to be clear I have RWD long range model 3

    I almost started a thread with the same question... That's a YES for me.

    Drive on chill most of the time where I didn't notice anything, but yesterday and today on "standard" there was a lot more power. It felt like we were on the edge of traction around 20-30mph. Could be placebo or perhaps a change to traction control, but something definitely felt faster.

    I don’t know about more performance, but for some reason I feel my wh/mi went up. May be related?

    Have any of you also received the autopilot trial with the new software? I wish there was a way to request the update.

    Is it weird I haven't gotten an update since taking delivery 11 days ago (24.7)? Car is on our wi-fi network every night.

    Nobody had any when they claimed the previous update made the car slower, so I wouldn't hold my breath :)

    It's likely a change in the mapping on the accelerator pedal (ie: less push = more power)... numbers would validate reality though

    I agree that hard data is needed. But it feels faster at full throttle. So pedal mapping wouldn't matter.

    28.1 and it doesn’t seem faster to me. Is it a 28.3 thing?

    Ah ha! 28.1. I said on 28.1 my trusty butt-o-meter said no change but Someone above said it it’s 28.2 lol.

    Nothing against you. But I’m just hoping that there’s still a chance that our cars did become faster.
