Last week, Tesla launched the new ‘track pack’ for the Model 3 Performance to help the car cope better when being used on a race track, which people tend to do. The new pack is also joined by an over the air update, with Track Mode V2 which adds new features and metrics to monitor.
What’s in the new track pack?
The package is $5,500 and includes new performance wheels, new brake pads and Michelin sport tires.
“Optimize the track performance of your Performance Upgrade Model 3. Track Package is a complete hardware package designed to give you maximum cornering force, braking performance and high-speed stability for the best lap times.”
The pack includes:
· 4 x 20″ X 9″ Zero-G Performance wheels
· 4 x Tesla logo center caps
· 20 x Lug nut covers
· 4 x 245/35ZR20 XL Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires
· 4 x tire pressure sensors
· 1 x front and rear high-performance brake pads
· 1 x brake fluid replacement
Tesla also say that the track pack can only be fitted to the Model 3 Performance, with the Performance Upgrade which makes sense.
What’s new in Track Mode V2?
The update is coming to all Model 3 Performance cars, regardless if you purchase the new Track pack or not. The new update will now allow the driver to chose how much power is sent to which end of the car, via new sliders. If you want to send more power to the rear to drift and slide the car, you can. The Model 3 will also now send more data to you, real time information about the motors and battery can be exported to a USB or looking at later on.
Also, Track Mode V2 brings new satellite maps, an accelerometer and G-force meter.
Track Mode V2 for Model 3 Performance introduces more advanced handling customization and lap data recording.
