Thank you for the response!Those options would ALL result in REDUCED performance
The main limiting factor is the ability of the tyre/road interface to transmit power to the ground and those options all make that WORSE
I would suggest instead
(1) Reduce weight - there is a lot of luxury in a model 3 - all of which can go
(2) Improve suspension/brakes
(3) This is the expensive one - you need to "hack" the software and increase the power
The Tesla is operating on a compromise because it expects 200,000 miles with no failures
If you are willing to accept a greater chance of failure (which is what "tuning is all about" THEN you should be able to stretch the power a good bit
Please help me understand.
i dont quite understand why an additional motor providing an additional lets just say 100hp of assistance makes the performance worse?
I was under the assumption that power at the wheels was additive if we had more power and more wheels its additive. Is the 100hp 5th wheel not powerful enough so it becomes a drag/load for the other 4 wheels to carry?
if so what if it had 200hp then it would have more power than any one wheel of the OEM tesla? if it had 250hp it would have just as much as the entire axle of the tesla, how could that make performance worse to add 250hp?
You are absolutely correct about lightening the car and upgrading the suspension, both things in the works.
the hacking the SW part is something that hasn't been figured out yet so that's really a non-starter as there is no current way to do it. There isn't even a way to hack the later year model s's. all the model s motors and independent controllers you see on the market are from the older firmware that was cracked (from what i heard).
