MPP Party Box And Cooling Party Controller Functional Overview
Party Box Activation
Activate the Party Box by using the slip start toggle in the Driving page in the settings menu. The Party Box will be activated whenever “slip start” is indicated on the UI, or when Track Mode is enabled. The traction control indicator will blink repeatedly when the party box is enabled.
Leaving the drive mode in “Creep” will force the Party Box to stay on even if the car triggers an error. The party box will be de-activated only if the car stays in park for 20 seconds or longer in this case.
Party Box Functional Overview (RWD)
When activated, all stability control functions will be deactivated. ABS will continue to work as normal. The party box will have a set traction control target that it will work to achieve. On the V1.0.0 that target is fixed at 30% slip + 10km/h. I.E. at 100km/h, the maximum allowed wheelspin will be 140km/h.
Party Box Functional Overview (AWD)
When activated, all stability control functions will be deactivated. ABS will continue to work as normal. The party box will reduce traction control intervention. If a significant amount of slip or sliding occurs, the car may detect this and trigger a warning, momentarily reduce power and then deactivate regen, and fully remove traction control. This occurance has been far reduced since Version 3 of our software.
For loose surfaces such as snow or dirt when more slip is needed, it is recommended to fault the stability control early (that is called HOON mode). To do so, hold the accelerator pedal to the floor for five seconds while in park.
Using the MPP Party Manager you are able to fine-tune the traction control settings to your desire, as well as set different pedal maps and torque bias maps for hoon mode.

As always, keep the party box disconnected using the bypass connector whenever you’re not on the track. NEVER use the Party Box with Autopilot or when performing software updates.
Cooling Party Controller Activation
Activate the Cooling Party Controller by selecting the “Creep” stopping mode. Since no one uses creep we used this toggle to activate the system as it is an easy-to-access option in the UI, and can be activated while charging or before heading on track.
Cooling Party Controller Functional Overview
When activated, the controller will run the OEM Tesla cooling systems including the AC compressor, radiator fans and water pumps to remove as much heat from the system as possible. Once the battery gets to 20 degrees C, the AC compressor and radiator fans will run at a reduced rate, however the water pumps will continue to operate at 100% duty.
As of version 4, the CPC will also disable battery heating. Enabling the cooling party controller 10-20 minutes before you are finished charging will help cool the rear motor and oil, as well as the battery. This way when you go back on track your car will be pre-cooled and ready to go!
