This Pearl White Multicoat Tesla Model S stops & looks better thanks to an Unplugged Performance Carbon Ceramic Big Brake Kit (BBK) and a set of lightweight UP-03 forged Wheels

The 2021+ Tesla Model S Plaid is a remarkably well-designed car. It flows right and its overall proportions cater to both the visual appeal and the aerodynamic traits needed for improved efficiency required by this EV. It’s one of the best performance vehicles right off the factory, providing impressive performance and impressive ride quality in an ecologically friendly package. However, some Model S Plaid owners like to improve on the OEM qualities of their cars. And for this owner, that meant upgrading this Plaid’s wheels and adding an aftermarket carbon ceramic big brake kit.

Pearl White Multicoat Tesla Model S - UP Carbon Ceramic Big Brake Kit (BBK)

The Unplugged Performance TESLA MODEL S PLAID SUPERLIGHT CARBON CERAMIC FRONT BIG BRAKE KIT (BBK)

The Tesla Model S Plaid is one of the fastest street cars on earth and decelerating 5000 lbs quickly, repeatedly and with consistent driver confidence is a big challenge. In turn, pushing your Plaid anywhere near its limits requires a braking system that can take a beating from high-weight-high-g-force stops exerting incredible forces repeatedly.  The Unplugged Performance Carbon-Ceramic Front Big Brake Kit (BBK) is designed to significantly increase this capacity. It accomplishes the various motorsports records and thrilled street user feedback it has received by providing a 93% increase in pad/rotor surface contact, significantly higher thermal capacity hardware, and custom-tailored brake pad compounds to provide the highest possible operating range temperature and pedal feel. It also happens to be significantly lighter in unsprung weight which brings advantages in feel, efficiency, and handling response.

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 of 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.

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 S, 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.

Pearl White Multicoat Tesla Model S - UP Carbon Ceramic Big Brake Kit (BBK)

The lightweight Unplugged Performance UP-03 wheels, designed & engineered specifically with this Tesla application in mind

We have a never-ending pursuit of improved efficiency through weight savings for most of our products. Beyond the sheer improvement in performance, reducing the unsprung weight of an electric vehicle is almost equally important. Hence, we have developed one of the world’s lightest weight wheel options, designed specifically for the Tesla Model S Plaid. Produced in aerospace-grade forged aluminum for maximum weight savings and strength, the Unplugged Performance UP-03 wheels for Tesla Model S Plaid are the product of a massive amount of R&D. The end result is a lightweight custom-made forged wheel that will allow your vehicle not only to stand out but also, help you achieve improved performance.

This particular Pearl White Multicoat Tesla model S Plaid is equipped with a set of 21″ UP-03 wheels, filling those large while arches of the Plaid perfectly. The wheels are sized 21×10.5 in the front and 21×12 in the rear. Our customer decided on a Satin Black finish, working perfectly with the Gloss Black brake calipers of our carbon ceramic big brake kit (BBK) and rather well against the gorgeous white exterior of this Model S Plaid. For those that want to do a similar setup, the wheels are wrapped in a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires, sized 265/35/21 in the front and 295/35/21 in the rear and you can order a wheel & tire package for your Model S by contacting us right away.

What our customers say
After using the fascia for over two years, this feels like a must-have Tesla upgrade. The stock Model 3 just doesn’t look the same anymore. I rate 4/5 stars since epoxy would be better than double-sided tape to secure the ultrasonic sensors.
UP Pikes Peak Race Team Soft Shell Jacket by North Face You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. The UP Jacket I first noticed on the Pikes Peak video on the set in the shop and I asked KIRK, “Do you have some of those”? He pulled two Medium beauties from the vault and added a couple of...
Exactly what I wanted. Much better appearance. Beautiful stance. Both stiffer in the corners and smoother on the regular road imperfections. Feels more tuned and prepared. Will recommend to all my Tesla owning friends.
Psychologists say that the more you pay for something, the more you like it. Maybe that’s what’s happening here, but the front fenders are now my most cherished upgrade. I love that I can unlock up to a 315mm square setup with a track camber and 305-295mm with a daily camber. I’ll never be...
An absolute MUST when thinking about your first upgrade. The Model Y, even in it's Performance Model, has more body roll than you'd like. It was one of my biggest complaints when driving the first few months. After installation, body roll was greatly reduced. Cornering on-ramps and turns with a...
You can see my photos on the site under Steve Guevara to see the detailed work that went into the front fascia unit. I said before that my skeptical wife told me to pick out the car that I wanted, so I liked the TM3 the best as my kids are away at college and now it is my turn to be spoiled. I also...
Same as the fascia, this feels like a must-have Tesla upgrade. The stock Model 3 just doesn’t look the same anymore. I love the dry carbon material and would highly recommend. I wish the diffuser fins came standard, even with a higher cost. With some DIY, you can make the air ducts in the bumper...
Unplugged Performance UP Emblem You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. The UP Emblem, just another seemingly innocuous item that KIRK added to make the car pop when driving behind it. The sun shines on the titanium and it screams at you and then goes back into its subtle way. To say that I love...
For my 2018 Model 3P I got the mild springs. Amazing! The ride feel is even better than I was hoping for. The car is my daily driver and the harshness of the stock springs with the 20" rims made me consider switching to 19". Instead I figured I try UP's dual rate springs first since it seemed to...
We got these (BBK) installed on our S Plaid was the best think we could have upgraded first. They feel so great when stopping on the big end on the tracks, So much light weight as well from the factory stock brakes. Thanks
After using the fascia for over two years, this feels like a must-have Tesla upgrade. The stock Model 3 just doesn’t look the same anymore. I would recommend epoxy over double-sided tape to secure the ultrasonic sensors for a longer-lasting, flush fitment.
These Rear brakes was a big help with our S Plaid drag racing car.Feels great and paired with the Front (BBK) & Upgraded to Racing brake fluid with the stainless steel lines. Thanks
You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. Wow, what to say about this spoiler. There are so many incredible things added to my SMG3 that since I have brought it home less than a week ago, I have had more that fifty conversations from strangers that absolutely have to have this spoiler. It...
Love these 6-points Harness in our S Plaid drag race car. Looks so amazing in the car with the UP carbon fiber seats..👌🏾
I’ve worked on cars and pushed them close to their mechanical limits all my life. This Model S Plaid definitely needs a brake upgrade if you tend to push your car harder than the average driver lol. The BBK install was pretty straight forward. You can use the instructions provided or with no...
These carbon fiber seats are amazing in our plaid drag car. Looks like it came from Tesla just like that. 🔥🔥🔥 Thanks
Product is top notch when I installed them it was like switching from a 1 piston sliding caliper to a bbk. Also cold performance and noise are really good
Christos Kentistos
The ascension front fascia makes my model 3 look so much sportier and aggressive. I’ve had it on my car for over a year now and I love it. The car looks way better than stock. This is how the car should look coming out of the factory.
I was not going to get these, as I do not track my car. I love the any chance to control as much about my car as possible. Just one more way to stand out from the crowd. And, I can get my tires to last a reasonable amount of miles.
You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. WHEELS, what to say about this indescribable addition. There are so many incredible things added to my SMG3, but this wheel set altered the car drastically. The RIDE is much improved with the grip around tight corners like Topanga Canyon with the other four...
