    ALP installation advice for Tesla Model Y Performance

    Thanks for the heads up on the grommet location. I'll check that in my model y, although my coolant reservoir is on the driver's side. Do you have metallic paint? If so, is be careful with the radar head in that location?

    I wonder what EV's equivalent to "race gas" would be :)

    That was 1/2 mile, not 1/4. 121 in the 1/4 is very fast.

    You get to 121 in the 1/4 mile?

    You're not referring to the performance model 3, correct? I'd be pretty impressed to see the Golf R modified do a 3.1sec 0-60 on the street. 1632854968 FYI - the Model Y Performance makes 503hp AT THE WHEELS. Admittedly, it's a heavy car to move, but it tends to get about 3.4sec 0-60 with a 1ft...

    Fully built McLaren 720S vs. Tesla Plaid

    My launches were unreliable with that car. That's why I added "in ideal conditions" as I often would get squirming in the rear end. The hood came up a lot and, from what I've read and experienced, launch heavily modulates throttle to maximize grip/minimize slip. At the track, I could get on it...

    Either worked well in ideal conditions...warm, dry with warm summer tires. 1632828894 Funny to read this today. Just got back from a trip to Hocking hills in the woods and, between bikers and muscle cars, you could hear all of the aggression even without seeing anything. Meanwhile, I was free...

    I gave up for now. Went with a remote control switch 12v setup for the r7. RHUNDO RS-21S 3-way Car Cigarette Lighter Splitter/Adapter/Charger + 2 USB 3.4Amp, with Remote Touch Sensor Switch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BR5DR9F/?tag=rdf0cd0c-20

    Moving from a '17 Z06 to a Model Y Performance, the Model Y would dust it at most any start (except ideal track conditions with warm tires). Even then, it would need 50 yards to begin to start to close the gap to 60mph. That is a dual motor. I also drove a Model S Performance just before...

    ALP installation advice for Tesla Model Y Performance

    It's gone, my friend. Sold it for darn near what I paid for it four years and 30k miles ago. It was time for a new chapter. I love tech and my bad back loves the model y seats. All is good.

    Thanks so much for the detailed response. On the DSP heads, I have metallic paint and I expect a serious reduction in range if I put it behind that.

    Thanks, Henry. The short answer for late 2021 is you have to run a relay and nothing switches off if you have sentry mode enabled. That's what I believe after much digging.

    ALP installation advice for Tesla Model Y Performance

    I'm thinking of installing the front and rear DSP heads in the plastic sections of the bumpers (rear just offset from the trailer hitch opening, behind unpainted plastic) and, if there is room, in the front grill just to the right or left of the slats behind the unpainted plastic. Anyone...

    False Advertising?

    And, that's all they sell in my local reputable car audio shop in Columbus. K40. I've talked to the manager, who I've come to know, and tried to educate. It's a multi-unit retailer and he doesn't have input into that, I guess (or K40 is more rewarding for them to install).
