    These carbon fiber seats are amazing in our plaid drag car. Looks like it came from Tesla just like that. 🔥🔥🔥

GENERAL INFORMATION
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Handle G-Forces Like A Champ

Whether in the cockpit of a Tesla or a SpaceX rocket, no pilot wants to slide around their seat getting rocked by g-forces. Simply said, seating design is an important function to support the purpose of the vehicle. We assume if you’re reading along that you likely drive differently than granny who also will buy a Model 3. Unfortunately, every Model 3 comes with only one seat design, and that seat, by definition of a mass-produced car must make granny happy. Do you drive exclusively in Chill Mode? If not you’re probably familiar with the feeling of sliding around in the slippery low bolstered factory seat. It is not confidence-inspiring to be bracing oneself up against a door mid-corner. The Unplugged Performance Ascension-R bucket seat program is a solution designed for performance drivers and we’ve spent the last year dialing in this solution so that you can bolt it in, drive hard and stop accepting compromises.

Pilot and Machine Become One

Having a supportive seat is more than just not sliding around. A properly designed and bolstered bucket seat allows the driver to feel a direct connection to the car. Ask any racing driver and they’ll tell you how invaluable it is to feel the car’s precise movements. That direct connection to the machine increases feel and speeds reaction time.

Safety First

The standard Model 3 seats were not designed for a racing harness in mind. The proper approach to utilizing a racing harness begins with having a seat that is designed for harness use. For this reason, Unplugged Performance partnered with Sparco on this project and we utilize Sparco FIA approved Italian made seats as a base for this project. Earlier in 2020, Unplugged Performance released a bolt in/bolt out track day harness bar as well as a Willians x Unplugged Performance FIA-approved racing harness. Together the 3 items create the ultimate weekend warrior solution for proper racing use. The harness bar unbolts cleanly for a factory look in less than 5 minutes and stores flat in the garage, meanwhile the seat unbolts just as fast.

One Cohesive System
The Tesla Model 3 is extremely difficult to modify as it relates to seating. For one there are seat width constraints, which prevent some seats from fitting into the car. We selected the largest and most comfortable high-performance seat which can accommodate the widest range of body types. Sparco suggests a 36 waist as fitting comfortably but we’ve had people with 42-inch waists fit as well. Our seat selection is great for scenarios with longer amounts of seat time and our friend Daerik even drove in these from California to Colorado! As we developed the complete solution we looked at existing hardware and found that the available seating positions were high and awkward at best so we developed from scratch a Model 3 specific seat base to allow the seat to position as low as possible. We include new hardware with every seat that allows the factory seat belt receiver to be used and we also include an eye-bolt for easy implementation of a racing harness. Perhaps the most challenging topic of seating is the deep computer integration of Tesla’s standard seats. Removing the standard seats on a Tesla creates a number of errors and in some cases renders the car completely not operable. We’ve seen various workarounds that still produce errors. To combat this challenge we’ve included an exclusive purpose-designed seat harness emulator. The included harness emulator allows the factory driver’s side seat and harness to be removed together intact and the car to function for racing despite the factory driver’s seat and harness being absent from the vehicle. The passenger seat may be removed and replaced with our bucket seats and the vehicle will still be able to race. There may be airbag/occupancy warning errors when removing the passenger seat but this will not impact racing usability.

Note – This harness emulator is designed for close racing circuits only. Because it is involves in the elimination of seat airbag and modification of the vehicle’s airbag and safety system it is not legal or advised for public road use.

Designed Custom For You
We’ve created variations in design to give the design as much focus as the function of this kit. Firstly we offer every package with either a Fiberglass (FRP) seat or a Pre-Preg Carbon Fiber (Carbon) seat. From there, for the lowest cost of entry, we offer the seats finished in the base level Sparco black textile finish. Things get more exciting from there as we offer full premium Alcantara versions of both the FRP and Carbon seat options.

The full Alcantara seating is offered in three variations:

  • Tesla inspired “Plaid Mode” -As used on our race cars for those who represent the fastest of the fast
  • Pure Black Alcantara – for a simple and clean look
  • Vintage Racing Houndstooth – Classics never go out of style
    * All three variations are easily interchangeable padding inserts. If you email us after your order, we can offer (for additional cost) additional insert sets so you can change the style up in less than a minute.

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 would recommend epoxy over double-sided tape to secure the ultrasonic sensors for a longer-lasting, flush fitment.
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...
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...
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...
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.
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...
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...
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
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.
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
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...
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...
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.
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...
Love these 6-points Harness in our S Plaid drag race car. Looks so amazing in the car with the UP carbon fiber seats..👌🏾
These carbon fiber seats are amazing in our plaid drag car. Looks like it came from Tesla just like that. 🔥🔥🔥 Thanks
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...
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...
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.
