Ice Racing Tesla Model 3 Performance DIY Homemade Tesla Roadster 2020! 2 days ago   07:03

Last weekend had a chance to get out on Warner Lake in Berne, NY for AMEC round #4 of 2019 ice racing season. Running on hakkapeliitta 9 studded tires.
It was great fun! The Model 3 performed well, only wished I had the big brakes package so that I could use Track Mode, as the default stability control was kicking in mid corner which spoiled the fun a bit. Tesla claims Track Mode will be available to non-PUP Performance models sometime in the future but so far no cigar. Also there is no way to purchase the bigger brakes package from Tesla currently so those owners in my situations are kinda stuck :) until Tesla does one of the two aforementioned: either releases track mode to non-PUP performance models or offers the big brake package for purchase (which they promised they will). Drone shots with Skydio R1.

**UPDATE 03/18: Looks like Tesla is now rolling out software update (2019.5.15) that enables Track Mode for P3D- models like mine. Whew, finally, but few days too late alas, haha. Oh well, there's always the next season...

DIY Homemade Tesla Roadster 2020! Ice Racing Tesla Model 3 Performance 2 days ago   16:48

I continue to build my own Tesla Roadster 2020!

The Tesla Roadster is an upcoming all-electric battery-powered four-seater sports car made by Tesla, Inc. Tesla has said it will be capable of 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) in 1.9 seconds and 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 2.1 seconds, quicker than any street legal production car to date at its announcement in November 2017. The Roadster is the successor to Tesla's first production car, which was the 2008 Roadster.
