This Matte Black Tesla Model 3 belongs to Zack, one of the most vocal supporters of performance upgrades & modding in the Tesla community, resulting in one of the best looking builds out there

It is our great pleasure to showcase yet another customer build on our website. Owned by Zack, one of the most vocal supporters of performance modding a Tesla, then driving it like it’s a matter of life or death both on and off the track, this Matte Black Tesla Model 3 Performance is brimming with Unplugged Performance parts. After all, if you want the best performance out of your Tesla, both on and off the track, only the best performance upgrades are needed.

The build started off with some visual upgrades. First, an Ascension rear bumper in carbon fiber w/ carbon fins was installed, giving the front end of this electric vehicle a more refined and aggressive look. After this was done, the Unplugged Performance high-efficiency rear carbon fiber spoiler for the Model 3 was installed, offering improved aero efficiency, thanks to advanced aero simulation and CAD technology, allowing us to engineer a spoiler that not only looks great, but is also simple to install without any drilling, doesn’t impede the rear visibility, but also, reduces overall drag and results in improved overall mileage.

Next in line were aftermarket performance suspension upgrades. Our Model 3 comfort coilovers and Front Upper Control Arms (F.U.C.A) were first to be added, followed by our sway bars (front and rear) w/ adjustable end links, ensuring that Zack can hit those tight curves on and off the track with both confidence and speed, but also, in a comfortable way that doesn’t impede any daily driving capabilities of this vehicle. Additional suspension upgrades come in the form of front lower control arm bushings, ensuring Smooth, solid, responsive, and predictable handling, a great upgrade for just $325.00 for our Model 3 customers.

Finally, the suspension. upgrades saw the Rear Camber Arms and Rear toe arms installed. While often the last item on the list for many, these actually provide a great gain in overall handling performance. We’ve gathered feedback on the arms’ on-track performance from our development driver, Randy Pobst, as well as real-world use data, collected from multiple test vehicles (which have been daily driven for more than a year with these parts) to ensure they satisfied our design goals. In turn, this allowed us to create a product that’s lighter and stronger than ever, releasing a product that provides easy-to-see results on your car.

In the brake department, Zack went with one of our high-selling products; the UP x PFC Iron Big Brake Kit (BBK) for the Tesla Model 3. It’s a great upgrade and a seemingly great compromise between a full carbon ceramic big brake kit (BBK) and the overall braking performance you receive with this kit. In turn, this is probably the best value-for-money BBK you can get for the Model 3, providing improved braking performance both on and off the track, all without breaking the bank. The kit is complemented with Unplugged Performance Model 3 street pads w/ street brake lines, ensuring brake fade is less of a problem on short, twisty roads and race courses Zack will encounter across the country. After all, he put over 147,000 miles on his Model 3 already, a feat all by itself for sure.

The interior is further enhanced thanks to the Unplugged Performance Ascension-R bucket seat, giving the driver a more controlling environment to tackle those tight curves, but also lowering the overall weight of this vehicle.

To complete the exterior modifications, Zack went with a set of UP-03 monoblock forged wheels for his Model 3, lowering the unsprung weight and providing a great upgrade to this vehicle’s wheel setup. Sized 19×9.5 in the front and 19×9.5 in the rear, the UP-03s are a great choice for performance-wary owners.

Simply put, these are some of the lightest wheels available for Tesla applications right now. They were developed through massive amounts of R&D, and real-world testing both on and off the racetrack, fueled by our never-ending pursuit of efficiency through weight savings. As a result, these wheels will not only allow you to stand out from the crowd but also, help you achieve improved performance with your Model 3 in various performance driving situations. The gorgeous Satin Black finish certainly helps with that. Additionally, the owner of this Model 3 Performance added an additional unsprung weight-reducing touch, a set of UP Titanium Lug Nuts in a Burnt Titanium finish, a great touch to wrap up this build.

What our customers say
I have a Tesla Model 3 LR but the rep at UP accidentally ordered the MY listing instead which is the same since both M3 and MY share most parts including struts. Purchased as the roads in DC just aren't very pleasant and combined with Tesla's stock struts, it's pretty horrendous. Delivery took...
Excellent product from a great team with great customer service! The factory Model 3 Performance's suspension is rather underwhelming, so once you add this Sway Bar kit along with the Dual Rate Linear Springs and Luxury Suspension Kit it completely transforms the car! UP also stands by their...
This brace was an amazing upgrade for my car. I added the UP rear sway bar first then the full UP suspension then this Strut Tower Brace. I feel this completed the feel i was looking for. The cars back end feels so solid while cornering and over the bumpys feels so solid too. A noticeable...
This is by far the best front fascia out there and its makes the Model 3 look so much better! It gives it a much sportier look and I get comments on it all the time. One of the simplest upgrades that makes a huge difference as far as the look of the car goes. Couldn't be happier with how it looks....
These are absolutely THE BEST brakes ( They work flawlessly lap after lap with it's nonstop stopping power, they will last forever. Incredible value for money and Highly recommend to anyone considering using their Tesla for both track and street.
I purchased a set of these Sway bars along with a few other upgrade components for my Model 3 ( The sway bars improve the ride quality, reduced body roll making the car more rigid and stable. Installation and setup was easy, being adjustable is an added bonus....

The pictures on the website does not do justice. the wheels look extremely beautiful. Kirk was extremely helpful, and coordination was amazing. My wheels are gloss black, not able to add a picture to the review if not would do it. I went with slightly bigger wheels 20x10.5 front and 20X11 back. ...
This Ascension-R Racing seat just arrived from Unplugged Performance ( It looks absolutely well manufactured, high quality and lightweight making it a must have accessory on any Tesla going to the track! Looks stunning and well designed!!
Significantly improved feel from this suspension kit. Don't forget yo get camber adjustments and springs that make this suspension upgrade feel like a whole new car!
Perfect companion product for the luxury suspension kit. An absolute must have for those who modify the springs of their vehicle.
These wheels are insanely light and strong! And, they look the bomb! If I didn’t look while picking them up, I would have thought they are carbon fiber! The same spec as was originally used on the Bionic Phoenix Model 3 race car! I put in my fastest time at Buttonwillow on these wheels...
The Willans Safety Harness kit along with the Ascension-R Racing seat just arrived from Unplugged Performance ( The 6-point Harness kit goes hand in hand with the design of the racing seat. It looks absolutely well made and high quality making it a must have...
Bought the shock and it works great. Definitely recommend for Model Y owners on limited budget.
WIFE APPROVED!!! I have a 2018 Model 3 LR AWD with the stock 18" wheels. I've always felt that the ride was a bit stiff and jittery with the stock suspension. Looking around for a solution, I came across coil-over kits which were expensive and I really didn't think I would need the adjustability...
I had my Coilovers installed by NV Auto in Hamilton Canada. They did a good job and I now have a great ride. After about a month of driving I went one step further and put new 18” rims and tires on. This really improved the ride and is is a joy to drive my Tesla again. Thanks unplugged...
Tight on turns and soft on bumps--the mild springs seemed like the best option for folks who want to keep the vehicle as close to stock as possible while simultaneously improving the vehicle ride quality.
These springs were the first real mod I’d ever done to my Tesla and I’m so happy with the way they turned out. They really complete the look on my model 3. And I was surprised to find you don’t sacrifice anything in terms of ride comfort by adding them. The only problem is that now that I’ve...
Who likes shredded tires? Nobody! Fix the wonky camber on early Model S vehicles with this easy upgrade.
