Unplugged Performance Innovation Wednesdays – Week 16 in a row! And now … Autocross!

After winning races and time attack events around the world we’ve now taken our race-winning suspension into the auto-x category. This new 32-way adjustable shocks are designed for SCCA compliance in Model 3 Super Street classes. This means they are specially valved and engineered to work perfectly with factory springs and are not height adjustable (SCCA rule book requirement). Early feedback from autocross veteran Jon Bickford has been amazing and Jon calls it a transformative experience after installing.
More auto-x focused products are coming to ensure our full support towards all forms of Tesla motorsport with our ready to win right out of the box upgrades! Below, you will find a more detailed information showcase for our brand new product.
Unplugged Performance Autocross-Spec Adjustable Shock Set for Tesla Model 3

Unplugged Performance Autocross-Spec Adjustable Shock Set for Tesla Model 3

Unplugged Performance suspension engineering has been proven around the world to consistently win races. After winning time attack events and a wide variety of organized motorsports events we’ve now set our sights on autocross. Our record winning suspension has been adapted and optimized to satisfy SCCA autocross street class regulations. SCCA’s Model 3 autocross classes such as “super street” and “super street r” restrict modifications. As a result, we are offering an SCCA AutocrossRulebook-compliant 32 way adjustable shocks that have been specifically tuned to extract maximum performance while retaining the factory springs. In keeping with SCCA regulations, these shocks are not height-adjustable and are purpose-built for the factory springs. The shocks are valved with daily driving as well as SCCA and similar rule set competitions in mind with perfect paring for the factory Model 3 springs. The 32 ways of adjustment offer a wide range in tuning for both racing and for daily driving comfort.
Daily Use

We recommend these set on soft settings for every day driving. Aside from being easily and quickly adjustable, the overall ride quality greatly improves over potholes and rough road surfaces. Feedback on the first day of install says it all: “I hit a pothole on the interchange that would usually be a loud bang and shudder through the car but now it was just a confident German-sounding thump. That alone is a big deal.”

SCCA Autocross Winning Combination

We recommend pairing these with our 3-way adjustable rear sway bar for the ultimate SCCA compliant suspension upgrades.

User’s Voice

After testing Unplugged’s new autocross shocks I can say with confidence that they do an amazing job of controlling nose dive, squat, and making body roll far better controlled. In addition to substantially better handling dynamics, potholes and sharp bumps are handled so much more competently now. The jarring bang that shakes through the whole car from potholes is now more like a confident German thump with the car staying much better composed.

Straight out of the box these shocks have been a fundamental improvement to the vehicle’s handling and they are also far more communicative about the road surface than the stock shocks ever were. I find them to be far better composed over large bumps or sudden changes of direction, and I even feel a noticeable improvement in panic braking situations.

So while these new Unplugged Performance Autocross Shocks are engineered for racing I would consider them a major improvement in street driving dynamics as well. Unplugged has finally made a Tesla with stock suspension geometry and ride height handle like the world-class sports sedan it should be.

  • Dampening Adjustable – One easy to use 32-way adjustable control simultaneously adjusts the ratio of Rebound and Compression damping. Rebound damping regulates the speed at which your shock bounces back from an impact (pothole, bump, hard cornering). By adjusting rebound dampening, one can customize the ride and handling of Model 3.
  • Easy to access external adjustment knob included for fast access in the frunk.
  • Every shock is custom engineered utilizing our racing background and partnerships (our parent company is Bulletproof Automotive with a history since 2000 of building award-winning street and track cars). Each shock is assembled using the best components including some sourced from Ohlins. After assembly, they are placed on a shock dyno to validate each unit.
  • High flow D port pistons + super low friction seals and rod guide bushings.
  • High-end monotube design – Lighter and more consistent performance when driven hard. No cost-cutting measures utilizing less expensive twin tube.
  • Progressive bump stops.
  • Retains the factory upper damper mounts to mitigate the transmission of excessive noise and vibration into the passenger cabin
  • Like our Dual Rate Lowering Springs, the Unplugged Performance Coilover Suspension Kit is a simple and straightforward installation onto your Tesla Model 3 (about 3 hours)
  • Assembled in USA
  • Rebuildable and re-valvable in USA

What our customers say
I really like how understated this lip is. It blends in perfectly with the existing bumper but you can still tell there is something unique about your car when it's installed. I have a grey model 3 and purchased the painted one. Although the site says it's not the exact same as the factory color, I...
I recently purchased the UP-03 Race Spec Wheels for my Tesla Model 3 from Unplugged Performance. Although the wheels look great and undoubtedly enhance the driving experience, I encountered a few issues during the process. Firstly, I was not informed that I would need spacers for the UP validated...
Sway bars changed behavior of car. It was straight forward to install. Thanks to the Unplugged team for providing guidance on the correct way to setup sway bar with the adjustable end links. Very happy with product!
I opted to get the race spec coilovers since I track the car. I’m very pleased with the performance of the coilovers. Not to mention the ride height is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks to the Unplugged team for their willingness to assist and answer my questions. They are very...
Been waiting for this part from UP since purchasing my coilovers almost 2 years ago. This part is completely much more superior than the OEM part and steering feel is much more accurate and responsive.
After lowering my Model 3 on coilovers I was having all kinds of clunking noises come from the front sway bars links. Initially, I purchased a different brand of adjustable links and they clunked no matter what I did (shortening, lengthening, removal and re-torqued them countless times), so I...
Dominic Marcu - Racing Driver perfect! with their help I can have the desired setup for the competition car.
Installed front big brake kit and noticed extreme improvement over stock model x plaid brakes. Later installed the rear carbon ceramic rotors and pads and noticed an appreciable increase in braking power and am now quite comfortable braking from speeds in the 160mph range and that was not the case...
I really like the new moderate lowering spring for my Model Y performance. The set lowered the car by roughly 1 inch (2.5cm) I have the feeling that the car provides a smoother ride than stock. You feel it when driving over small bumps. The car is still stiff but I like it better that stock and...
I upgraded bushing to address an issue I had with lower control arm. Instead of buying OEM, decided to upgrade to spherical bushing from Unplugged. Definitely worth the upgrade. I recommend upgrade.
The Side Skirt Set really improved the look and feel of the TM3. It ties in the front fascia unit and the rear spoiler looks fantastic as well. It makes for a lower look and a sleek ride. I'm very impressed at the pictures and I have been given compliments on its finish. The paint matched the...
Dominic Marcu - Racing Driver Just perfect for my car
Dominic Marcu - Racing Driver the car is heavy. With these elements we get rid of quite a lot of weight. They look good, and they are of the highest quality!
I installed these because with my previous set of UP lowering springs I really had uneven tire wear and it costed me a lot of tires. Installation was easy and the products look high quality. Let's see how the rubbers hold up. For now I used the same length as the original arms but made an...
Purchased the sway bar for my plaid about a year ago after hearing good things about it on the Tesla forum. Unfortunately, I got super busy and I didn’t get a chance to install it until recently. Very happy with the purchase and there’s a very noticeable improvement in handling. The car also...
My wife drives a Model Y as her daily driver and for a commuter car the model Y suspension can be very harsh with a lot of body roll. Purchased the luxury coilovers and sway bars to help with this. Only 1 mechanic in North Carolina was certified to do it that was in the unplugged performance...
