Quarantine Project — Hyperdip on the wheels. For those interested, this product seems much better than original Plastidip. I couldn’t get in for powder coating right now. This was a great temporary solution for $75! Very impressed and pleased with the results.

In a galaxy far, far away
Cool, video, thanks for sharing. Yes, thought about that earlier on. Gotta be pricey. I'm emailing now to ask price- place your bets.
I bet it's $50K+ for a lift with a roof, no driver on board, only just enough space and capacity for a Model 3, minimal travel with no additional stops.
I think they're based in Italy, so maybe $100k!
Well, using an elevator might be a little be overwhelming but I was thinking that you could dig a garage under your back yard
and make your driveway, on the side of the house, going downward.

Looking at your .pdf plan, I noticed that you plan in fact to enter from the back alley and put two cars, slanted for easy access.
Which might be even simple, while still keeping half of the backyard available.

I have a neighborhood who dig a garage under his house. It cost more than the original price of the house, but that was long time ago.
But now the house with a two cars garage outsell any expenses made.

Right. I couldn't dig down if I wanted to- no room for a ramp, which is why I had the idea for a lift. And the plan is to keep all of the backyard, by raising half of it.

Sorry if I missed it before, but what are your wheel and tire specs? Looks great!

I've only put them on a few weeks ago, and was pleased that people started to compliment the car again. My Aerowheels (now my winter wheels/tires) don't do much for the cars appearance.

VMR V710 19x8.5 wheel weight.jpg

The wheels are VMR V710 Hypersilver 19 x 8.5 et 35mm. Tires are Continental PureContact LS 235/40/R19 700AA, 23.4 lbs.
So this combo is slightly lighter than the factor 19" sport wheels, and should have better treadlife, but sacrifices some dry traction.

Sigh: no new picture until she gets out of the shop but here’s a picture of dreadfully slow supercharging on a loaner P85D. Oh well, at least it’s “free”.

I dunno.
It feels quicker because of how violently it kicks but can’t put my finger on it actually being faster.

I've owned both a M3P and a P85D (with original "insane" acceleration, then "ludicrous" after the hardware upgrade).
I can confirm the P85D kicks harder and has more overall power, but pulls less at speed. It's a much heavier beast, about 1,000lbs more.
I'd never track the P85D due to the weight, whereas the M3P is really fun on the track. Just wish it had more kick down low.
Here's to hoping a ludicrous M3P comes out soon! Else I'll have to save up for Plaid :D

Yeah it’s kind of a trip having to wait for the car to “warm up” and it runs out of steam cutting power after a handful of good hard romps.

Power consumption is kind of a joke too.

If I’m lucky I can coax 400wh/mi at constant highway speeds (70mph): Fun car but would be a PITA on a proper road trip w slow charging and high use.

Thanks for the reply, So you bought tires without the foam? Any increase in cabin noise?

Thanks again

I read some reviews on Tire Rack from Model 3 owners, and it didn't seem to be an issue. Tire rack has an test report video on this tire.
I never measured the noise level difference, and haven't really notice them as being noisy, but I was moving from Michelin X-ice winter tires to these.
I don't track the car, so for me I wanted a good wet/dry traction tire, with better than OEM tread life, and keeping the wheel/tire weight at or below OEM 19's.
