Description

(Pictured on Model Y First Install – Early production run of Model Y Moderate Dual Linear Rate Springs)

An unparalleled dedication to research and advanced engineering has created the ultimate in high performance spring technology. Every version of every spring we produce is specifically engineered with two distinct linear spring rates inside one spring. This allows enhanced comfort (spring rate #1) paired with increased handling (spring rate #2). This level of advanced engineering and manufacturing is incomparable with lower cost Linear or Progressive springs common in the aftermarket.

One size does not fit all. We’ve engineered specific spring rates to more perfectly enhance the handling of the Tesla Model Y. Enjoy the immediate benefits of improved comfort and handling, combined with a sporty ride height that reduces drag and increases range.

Experience why Unplugged Performance is the world’s #1 trusted Tesla tuner and enjoy the benefits of our continued dedication to Tesla research and development.

CONCEPT:

  1. Increased in comfort in daily driving situations. Solution by studying factory spring rates and producing a softer but proportionate spring rate front and rear that maximizes the benefit of specific dual linear spring rates built into each spring.
  2. Increased handling limits. Solution by utilizing the highest technology partner (F1 and Indy Car spring manufacturer Hyperco) and producing a secondary more sporty performance spring rate that engages when cornering g forces are loaded.
  3. Increase in vehicle efficiency/range. Achieved by lowering the car as height is proven to correlate to aerodynamic efficiency and coefficient of drag.
  4. Every day improved performance at a significant value. Solved by producing in bulk by the premier Tier 1 manufacturer, produced and engineered exclusively in partnership with Unplugged Performance. Proudly made in the USA.
 
 

WHY CHOOSE UNPLUGGED PERFORMANCE DUAL RATE LINEAR LOWERING SPRINGS?

Choosing UP dual rate linear springs means that you are able to enjoy a 15-30% softer spring rate around town than what is possible with low cost standard linear springs can provide with only one spring rate. After experiencing first hand, you’ll find that UP’s decision to take on the additional engineering work and production costs are well justified with UP dual rate linear springs because the technology allows for a softer ride than ever previously possible, all without giving up performance handling precision when it matters most. The primary spring rate (cruising around town over bumps and pot holes) is intentionally engineered to be as soft as possible for comfort. When the primary spring rate compresses under load (spirited driving conditions) the second spring rate transitions in. The second spring rate is typically 30% more firm and acts to reduce body roll, increase grip and enhance precision. By comparison, when using lower cost single rate linear springs there is only one defined spring rate and therefore it cannot be made as soft because there is no second transition rate to firm up when needed. Alternatively, by comparison with lower cost progressive springs they allow a continuous range of spring rates but do so without the predictability, confidence and planted feeling of linear single spring rates. Performance drivers for decades have always chosen linear springs, this product is uniquely a dual linear rate engineered spring to allow high performance and high comfort.

SPECIFICATIONS:

  • Produced in an engineering partnership with Formula 1 and 50+ consecutive Indy car winning spring supplier HYPERCO
  • Proven Dual Linear Rate spring technology allows for the best of both worlds. The car rides at noticeably softer spring rates around town. When sporty handling is desired, natural cornering g forces activate the spring’s 30% sportier secondary spring rate which reduces body roll and gives a noticeable difference in both feel and handling at the limit
  • Physics have proven the benefits of range efficiency by lowering the center of gravity and reducing underbody air turbulence
  • Mild provides the nearest to factory ground clearance and softest most luxurious ride possible by utilizing UP’s dual linear rate technology.
  • Moderate provides an approximate 1.5″ lower ground clearance (on the Model Y Performance approximately 1") with slightly more comfort around town and significantly sportier handling in corners.
  • Designed, Engineered and Produced in America

AERODYNAMICS:

  • During our comprehensive aerodynamic study of Model 3, we tested the efficacy of our Dual Rate Linear Lowering Springs using CFD, and the results were dramatic.  After installation of the Moderate Version of our Dual Rate Linear Lowering Springs (1.5″ lower ride height), a decrease of 8.1% in total vehicle drag resulted, with a reduction of the total vehicle drag coefficient by 0.019 (factory ride height = 28.5″ baseline, measured at the center of the front fender).
  • We expect similar results for the Model Y and will release the data when our analysis is complete.
