Unplugged Performance, the pioneer in aftermarket Tesla upgrades, has once again pushed the boundaries of EV capabilities. In a remarkable display of strength and versatility, the company utilized their Tesla Cybertruck to tow ‘Dark Helmet,’ their record-setting Tesla Model S Plaid race car, from their headquarters in Hawthorne, California, to Buttonwillow Raceway Park for a TeslaCorsa track day event.

TeslaCorsa, known for its dedication to offering Tesla owners, both novice and expert, a unique racetrack experience, witnessed the versatility of the Cybertruck firsthand. Not only did it effortlessly tow the 9,000-pound load of the race car and trailer over the challenging Grapevine section of the I-5 freeway, surpassing other towing vehicles with ease, but it also demonstrated remarkable endurance and efficiency – advantages of electric vehicle towing over traditional ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) trucks, which often face overheating and mechanical issues.

Once at the track, the mostly-stock Cybertruck astounded onlookers by clocking an impressive lap time of 2:15. This was accomplished utilizing all-terrain tires wrapped around 22” UP CYBRHEX wheels, UP INVINCIBLE Carbon Fiber Fender Flares and by setting the suspension to HIGH, enabling BAJA mode, which uniquely allows adjustments to the Stability Assist and Handling Balance– showcasing the vehicle’s adaptability in demanding situations.

In a testament to the growing community of Tesla enthusiasts, Unplugged Performance made a charging stop in Santa Clarita, where they participated in a Cybertruck meet hosted by the Tesla Owners Club of Santa Clarita Valley. This gathering marked a significant moment, with seven privately-owned Cybertrucks present – the most ever at a single event.

“The sight of Unplugged Performance’s Cybertruck effortlessly towing Dark Helmet to our event was truly remarkable for the Tesla community,” said Zack Feldstein, VP of the Tesla Owners Club of Santa Clarita Valley. “It demonstrates not just the raw power of electric vehicles but also their potential in revolutionizing the world of automotive transport and motorsport.”

Embracing their role as trailblazers in EV performance enhancement, Unplugged Performance has announced plans to equip their Cybertruck with upcoming street-performance upgrades. This initiative aims to shatter the sub-2-minute lap time at Buttonwillow Raceway Park, a benchmark every racer aspires to achieve. This endeavor not only highlights the company’s commitment to innovation but also underlines Cybertruck’s potential as a game-changing vehicle in both everyday utility and high-performance contexts.

The Cybertruck has now become Unplugged Performance’s dedicated race car hauler, a testament to its reliability and superior performance capabilities in diverse scenarios.

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.
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...

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...
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...

Perfect companion product for the luxury suspension kit. An absolute must have for those who modify the springs of their vehicle.
Who likes shredded tires? Nobody! Fix the wonky camber on early Model S vehicles with this easy upgrade.
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...
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!
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....

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. ...
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....
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...
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...
Bought the shock and it works great. Definitely recommend for Model Y owners on limited budget.
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...
