Isaac’s Non-Performance AWD Tesla Model 3
Isaac has been one of the most dedicated members of the community, and he visits the track as much as anyone! One of the nicest guys you’re likely ever to meet, Isaac’s AWD Model 3 has come a long way over the last year. Being a non-performance model, this car doesn’t have Track Mode or the power output of the performance car – so the fact that Isaac is able to do a sub 2:00 lap at Buttonwillow is extremely impressive!
We’re happy the MPP parts have helped him get there, and it’s encouraging to hear that he was able to find such a significant improvement switching from a competitor’s product to ours. Thank you for your continued support, Isaac!
I love to take my 2018 Model 3 Dual Motor LR to the track at least once a month to do hot laps. After a while I started noticing my lap times weren’t improving. I had already owned a few MPP upgrades and a set of AWD Coilovers from a competing brand.At the time, I figured I had reached my Model 3’s limitation. That all changed when a good friend of mine that had MPP AWD Sport Coilovers installed in his Model 3 asked me to be his passenger in one of his track sessions. I was so impressed,I ended up buying MPP’s AWD Sport Coilovers to replace the coilovers I already owned for less than a year from the competing brand. I realized I had already outgrown them.
Once I received my new set of MPP AWD Sport Coilovers, I proceeded to install them myself in preparation for the Tesla Corsa Challenge #7 event at Buttonwillow Raceway Park. I was blown away by the performance from the MPP Coilovers on the morning of the event! My 2nd hot lap of the day resulted in beating my previous best lap time by 5 seconds, while still on MPP’s recommended street settings! Then 2 months later I beat my previous best lap time again at Tesla Corsa Challenge #8 by being the first (and currently the only) Model 3 Dual Motor LR to achieve a sub-2min lap time of 1:59.6!
There are other awesome MPP upgrades I have installed in my car worth mentioning, but out of all the upgrades I have purchased so far, the MPP AWD Sport Coilovers has made the biggest impact on me. It has unlocked a whole new level of performance on the race track for my Model 3 Dual Motor LR. If you’re seeking additional performance and comfort for the street AND also want the capability to be competitive on the race track, you will not find another set of coilovers at the same price point equalling MPP’s quality, customer service, performance and R&D experience.
Save yourself some time and money by buying once, not twice like I did.
