John’s Tesla Model 3 Performance – OPTIMA GTE 157

Nashville, USA

John Laughlin was one of our first sponsored racers – Also known as the infamous “Rex Raikkonen” on YouTube, John has been slaying cones in ICE cars for quite some time. As a SCCA Solo National champion and Pro Solo National points champion, he is more than qualified to wheel his Tesla to victory. Thankfully for the EV community, John saw the potential of the Model 3 to dominate in autocross where the AWD traction and instant power can really shine. 

Thank you for your continued support John, we really appreciate you sticking with us and trusting us to help you win! 

 

It really comes down to the suspension and brakes, coupled with 275/35R19 Bridgestone RE-71R tires.  The power is there from the factory, but the suspension is soft and the brakes can’t handle the weight.  The suspension upgrades from Mountain Pass Performance completely changed the dynamics of the car, and have made it into a true performance vehicle.  The fluid has been upgraded to DOT-4 Redline RL600, which really helped the car stop consistently.  With the same wheels and tires, but upgraded suspension and brakes, the fast lap time improved over 6 seconds at NCM Motorsports Park, so the setup is really working well.

Tesla Cancels Model S Plaid+, I guess MPP will have to fill-in?

The new Plaid Model S is sounding like an amazingly fast car, and the Plaid+ sounded like its job was to fill in the rest of the car's abilities outside pure straight-line acceleration. Now that Elon has announced the Model S Plaid+ is canceled, maybe MPP will have to...

MPP Is Giving Away A Solar System!?

We're giving away a free solar system! Well - not the entire solar system that orbits our star, but a roof-mounted solar system. It may sound crazy, but sponsoring an MPP customer with a solar roof is a way that we can directly invest in renewable technology. We're...

MPP Racers Tackle One Lap Of America!

What an adventure. What originally started as the Cannonball run in the early 1970's, organized by automotive legend Brock Yates, has turned into what is now known as the One Lap of America. Almost as wild as the dash across America - although far less illegal, One...

How To Adjust Your Tesla’s Alignment

I have a vivid memory of how my father used to brag about the quality of a newly purchased car on the drive home from the dealership - "It drives straight as an arrow!" he would exclaim. Yes, that was his first test of any new vehicle. If it drove true down the road...
