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
  • This product is not officially endorsed by SCCA and we have no relationship with SCCA or its affiliates.

What our customers say
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....
Bought the shock and it works great. Definitely recommend for Model Y owners on limited budget.
Excellent product from a great team with great customer service! The factory Model 3 Performance's suspension is rather underwhelming, so once you add the Dual Rate Linear Springs along with the Sway Bar kit and Luxury Suspension Kit it completely transforms the car! UP also stands by their...
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...
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...
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. ...
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.
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...
I purchased a set of these Sway bars along with a few other upgrade components for my Model 3 (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8c-F2PEYP) 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....
Who likes shredded tires? Nobody! Fix the wonky camber on early Model S vehicles with this easy upgrade.
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...
The Willans Safety Harness kit along with the Ascension-R Racing seat just arrived from Unplugged Performance (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8f-5cvDuE/) 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...
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...
This Ascension-R Racing seat just arrived from Unplugged Performance (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8f-5cvDuE/) 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!!
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...
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!
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...
Perfect companion product for the luxury suspension kit. An absolute must have for those who modify the springs of their vehicle.
These are absolutely THE BEST brakes (https://www.instagram.com/p/CveWNmjvKwT/) 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.
