Improved Stopping Power For Model X Plaid Owners Who Like To Drive Their Family Performance SUV Hard & Fast

Stopping a vehicle that has 1,020 horsepower and can run the 1/4 in just 9.9 seconds, which weighs in at over 5,000lbs is a daunting challenge. And pushing your Model X Plaid anywhere near its limits requires a braking system that can take a beating from high-weight-high-g-force stops exerting incredible forces again and again and again.  The Unplugged Performance Carbon-Ceramic Front Big Brake Kit (BBK) is designed to take constant abuse and keep on providing consistent stops when paired with appropriate high-temp racing brake fluids.

Carbon ceramic braking technology is leveraged by modern hypercars and supercars to provide the ultimate in stopping power, combined with the unique characteristics of carbon which include lightweight, light-wearing, and long component life.  Early-generation carbon-ceramic rotors from manufacturers such as Ferrari and Porsche earned a reputation for being squeaky and cranky in cold weather, these problems have been overcome with the latest generation carbon-ceramic technology. We are proud to say that our carbon-ceramic brake systems are quieter than any iron system we have tried with performance pads and perform well in all conditions from boiling hot track days to frozen mountain roads.

2021+ Tesla Model X Plaid Carbon Ceramic Front Big Brake Kit (BBK)

A key advantage of this big brake kit is the packaging and efficiency. We’ve managed to increase pad to rotor surface area from 77.5cm² (standard equipment) to 149.4cm² with this kit. This represents a massive increase of 93% while still fitting factory 19″ wheels. Beyond standing up to the deceleration demands of the Plaid Model X, the Unplugged Performance Superlight Carbon-Ceramic Big Brake Kit lowers unsprung weight in excess of 25lbs which translates to a reduction in the amount of inertia for the components managed by the suspension, which in turn leads to a more responsive ride and more agile handling feel. Additionally, reductions to the rolling mass can also improve range and efficiency for vehicles with economy-focused wheels and tires.

What our customers say
Excellent product! I installed mine as my first step into getting some more performance out of my M3P for Autocross. The front and rear sway bars along with some wider wheels and stickier tires really took my lap times to the next level. I would say, if you drive hard with these sway bars like I...
On the track or not these sway bars make your car feel solid on turns. Immediately I noticed improved corner turns which is great! Highly recommend!
Received my suspension for my Y 2022 long range what a difference. Set it for 8 on the adjustment rides totally different what a great job took it to a friend of mine Frank Reyes to install Desert car medics said the product was very well made installed it in about 5 and 1/2 hours. Driving it for a...
Purchased these with the luxury coilovers but kept things at stock ride height. So far, everything is great!
LOVE my new UP-03 wheels. Super light, super strong and they look so good. Super high quality finish on the wheels too, worth every penny. Have had the wheels for just a few days and have gotten tons of compliments on the road and at the track. These are the best wheels you can buy for your Tesla,...
These dual rate springs were the most noticeable and effective upgrade I've made to my Model Y. Much better handling and comfort compared to the stock standard rate springs.
Paint match was perfect. Fit is perfect. It’s exactly what I was looking for, exceeded expectations.
Had the bars installed with the end links on my M3P, at the same time lowered with performance springs and got new tires. No regrets. The car rides flat af. I look forward to round-abouts now. Big ups to UP.
I wanted to wait a few weeks before leaving my review to really see if there was a significant difference and it is a significantly better ride. I commute 70 miles a day on a fairly rough socal highway and the change is noticeable. Yes, you’re still going to feel the bumps but they are not as...
If love carbon fiber like I do then this is a must. Nothing compares to UP carbon coaster. The weaves are super clean, very sturdy, looks great. I couldn’t help myself and got this to add to my carbon collection.
These brakes perform great and I should have upgraded to these a long time ago. Pedal travel with with the included brake lines are much improved as well.
Oh, wow; it is insane that one bar can dramatically alter the dynamics of the car. It is so much more planted and stable during those freeway maneuvers, which was the primary reason I bought the bar. The car is just solid at all speeds. Really solid. What is shocking is that the comfort levels seem...
I've covered innovation in the vehicle space for a long time. Mercedes Benz gave me its first ride in its first autonomous vehicle. BMW drove me around SXSW in the first i3 electric all week long. I wrote four books on technology, predicting with each decade-long trends. I have the first video on...
My 2019 Performance Model 3 is great, but with the heavy weight of this EV the cornering at high speeds was disappointing. I recently added these Dual Rate Lowering Springs to the UP Sway Bars, and the handling is definitely getting better! The initial spring rate makes the bumps less jarring with...
The shop we had these installed was a 1.5 hour highway drive away so the trip home was a great test to see if we liked them (we live in NC). It was immediately noticeable that the ride of our 2021 Y was softer and bumps were not as hard. We had the shop set our coilovers to setting number "3" and...
Shout out to Andrew at Unplugged Performance! Customer service is excellent. Great communication with everything. Knowledgeable about all products. Will do more business with UP.
I purchased these as set with my coil overs and these are definite must to install. These bushing add great handling to your steering. Steering is more accurate and responds well to the drivers needs. Highly recommend!
Moto Miwa definitely made the right recommendation for the Moderate Lowering springs for my Model 3 Performance. They gave it the perfect balance between drop and functionality - good ride quality and no scraping. Also, in another conversation regarding tire wear, Moto suggested I purchase the...
I have my model 3 performance and love it and now after adding these coil overs, can’t comprehend why these aren’t stock for tesla. These coil overs are amazing automagically felt like the car was on a cloud, handles great, and very smooth. Noise is reduced and can not believe I took this long...
These are exactly what I was expecting. I waited over a year for them. Pandemic backorders and all. It took me about 6 hours to install with help from a friend. The fronts were the worst part. You have to have the spring compressors mounted just right and really compress them a lot to assemble the...
