Unplugged Performance Tesla Model S Plaid - Dark Helmet's Laguna Seca 1:28.21 Lap with Randy Pobst

Coming off of the car's Pikes Peak class win the Unplugged Performance’s Tesla Model S Plaid aka Dark Helmet clocked a 1:28.21 lap during TeslaCorsa 16 at Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca. Randy Pobst was behind the wheel piloting the modified 4850lb (with driver) family sedan to an EV modified lap record which saw a top speed of 155mph. What is perhaps most incredible is that the Hypercar level lap time was achieved with no gas, 4 doors, 2 trunks & Autopilot using a modified mass production vehicle at a fraction of the cost of any comparably fast car.

Dark Helmet Mod List:
- UP x @BILSTEIN Semi-Active Skyhook Dampers
- UP Billet Adjustable Front Upper Control Arms
- UP Billet Adjustable Rear Camber Arms
- UP 3 Way Adjustable Rear Stabilizer Bar
- UP 19” UP-03 Forged Wheels with @Yokohama Tire

Pikes Peak 2021 was a whirlwind of no sleep and crucial deadlines. Usually we make time for interviews but this year was intense and every minute counted. This impromptu video serves as our only live interview during race week. It explains our motivations, our mission, our excitement about Tesla Plaid technology, and represents our anxious excitement leading up to race day. The interview ironically was filmed at a Pikes Peak fan event held in front of Porsche Colorado Springs. We had a little joking fun with the fact that we had our Plaid Tesla Model S parked in front of the Porsche dealership and drawing a crowd. It is all one family though as the Porsche dealership is owned by our Colorado Springs partner who also owns our UP dealer and Pikes Peak home base facility Eurocars Collision. Eurocars is our UP dealer and they also are a Tesla Authorized Body Shop.

Thanks to Joe Brenner and his companies Eurocars and Porsche Colorado Springs for being wonderful hosts.

This video was filmed and hosted by Andrew Soeldner and Raj Ramaurti. Andrew and Raj are Colorado Springs local Tesla owners and were there for us last year when we had our crash/rebuild. In our eyes these guys represent the awesomeness of the Tesla community that we love. They've been there for us in good times and bad. It was a joy for us to talk with them and they caught us in a rare moment of downtime where we could chat. We also afterwards got Andrew a crew pass and had him join our team for race day. If we could have we would have obtained crew passes for everyone in the community to join us. We really feel the support and think of all of the community as part of our UP family. Thank you all! We are eternally grateful for the Tesla community.

Shortly after this video our driver @Randy Pobst and our monster machine Dark Helmet won a decisive victory in our class exhibition class at @Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. It was a wonderful ending to a tremendous challenge that we enjoyed fighting every minute of. 

Thanks to our PPIHC sponsors @BILSTEIN @Yokohama Tire Braille Battery and thanks to @Tesla for the alien technology. Thanks to Andrew Soeldner as well for providing us with this footage.

Project Dark Helmet Intro Drift - UP Tesla Model S Plaid With Randy Pobst

Our longtime friend and driver @Randy Pobst was enlisted to debut our Model S Plaid race car at Pikes Peak. During testing at PPIR this morning Randy found himself with some used Yokohama slicks end of day. We felt these great tires deserved a proper send off. Drifting ensued and tires were annihilated with 1020 Plaid horsepower. There is no more honorable tire death than Randy Pobst drifting in a Tesla Model S Plaid.

As for the car…We call it Dark Helmet.

“Sustainable energy cars can be the fastest cars, the safest cars, the most kick-ass cars in every way. That’s why we did the Plaid.”
Elon Musk, June 10th 2021

At WeatherTech Laguna Seca Raceway on Saturday, June 12th we had a surprise debut of our 2021 Pikes Peak Plaid race car. The purpose of the event was to give our legendary racing driver @Randy Pobst his first taste of Plaid's Tesla alien technology.

How does this production-based electric-powered sedan race car stack up against the world's best singular purpose-built ICE track cars?

Well, the McLaren P1 owner described the UP Tesla Plaid passing him as if he was standing still. Seeing is believing and so we've shared this video to witness the uncompromising performance of Tesla technology in a racing environment vs the world's best hypercars. In this video, you will see a Porsche 991 GT3 RS, a McLaren Senna and McLaren P1 get rapidly left behind in the Plaid's electron trail.

To understand Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and our mission we are proud to share our documentary here from our run in 2020:
https://youtu.be/k9mLF-V1vBM

Our objectives for the Hypercar Invitational event were not to attempt any lap records but rather to learn the new platform, to dial in our numerous new prototype racing parts we've developed and to prepare for a safe and fast race up the mountain at Pikes Peak.

Thank you to Tesla for producing such an incredible vehicle for us to race. Thanks as well to our sponsors: Bilstein, Yokohama, Braille Battery, and to our superhuman team at Unplugged Performance (both internal and extended family).

Event: Hypercar Invitational 3 @ Laguna Seca (the best event in the world to debut a car)

When you’re racing on the limit along the winding mountain roads of Pikes Peak, there’s a fine line between success and failure. With road and weather conditions shifting constantly, even purpose built vehicles struggle to make it to the top. They say it’s almost guaranteed that something will go wrong for each team during race week and your job as a driver, a race team, or a team manager, is to mitigate that risk as much as possible just to get your car to the top of the mountain. On race day, you’ve only got one shot and everything you’ve been working on for the last year needs to survive 156 turns to get to the top of the 12.42-mile road.

Last year, we took on the challenge of Pikes Peak International Hill Climb for the first time. With our favorite racecar driver, Randy Pobst at the helm of a modified Model 3, we were filled with excitement and potential. But then on the second day of qualifying at a turn nicknamed Bottomless Pit, our hopes and dreams of making it to the top, all came crumbling down.

Over the next several days our rockstar team of engineers and technicians did the impossible, they rebuilt and raced to the summit.This is our story of perseverance in the face of almost impossible odds and doing whatever it takes to get to the top.

Thank you to everyone who believed in us and who continue to believe in the potential of electric vehicles. This one is for you.

SCCA Autocross 1st Place Win CST Class On Unplugged Performance Suspension

Autocross legend Tom Berry tested the UP suspension tuning he called it "Nothing short of incredible versus all of the other Tesla Model 3's I've driven."

Shortly after that interview with Tom Berry found here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WT9zqbM8_A

Kyle O'Rourke hopped in the car and piloted it to victory winning 1st place in SCCA's highly competitive CST class!

This video illustrates the sharp precision and the delicate dance that is highly skilled autocross driving on highly tuned suspension. Note - this was not the fastest lap but it is a fun watch!

Although this car runs UP Race coilovers the owner still daily drives the car and had this comment to say about the duality of UP race products driven daily on the street:
"Thanks to Unplugged for telling me about setting the coilovers to 4th softest setting for street use. Now the car is very comfortable driving around town. Apparently they bypass a certain amount under 5 clicks from soft."

Thanks to Kyle O'Rourke and Joseph "Mike" Parsons for the video and congrats on the win!

Tom Berry is a legend and regular champion of autocross. Our client Mike Parsons had an opportunity to have Tom drive his car and provide feedback. Tom has driven many autocross cars including quite a few tuned Tesla Model 3's. In the video you can see Tom's feedback and how was blown away by the performance of UP bolt-on parts upgrades. 
In Tom Berry's words
- "Nothing short of incredible versus all of the other Tesla Model 3's I've driven."

Autocross Legend Tom Berry’s Review After Testing Unplugged Performance Tesla Model 3 Tuning

Tom Berry is a legend and regular champion of autocross. Our client Mike Parsons had an opportunity to have Tom drive his car and provide feedback. Tom has driven many autocross cars including quite a few tuned Tesla Model 3's. In the video you can see Tom's feedback and how was blown away by the performance of UP bolt-on parts upgrades.
In Tom Berry's words
- "Nothing short of incredible versus all of the other Tesla Model 3's I've driven."

Shortly after this video was filmed this car competed and won 1st place in CST class versus some stiff competition in a field with multiple prior champion drivers. Congrats to drivers Kyle O'Rourke and Joseph "Mike" Parsons!

Although this car runs UP Race coilovers the owner still daily drives the car and had this comment to say about the duality of UP race products driven daily on the street:

Unplugged Performance 2021 Model 3 Ascension-R Track Mode Footage 1:54.2 at Buttonwillow

At the end of the day during TeslaCorsa 14 we had Oscar Jackson Jr. drive our latest 2021 Tesla Model 3 Ascension-R for a final lap around Buttonwillow Raceway.

This video captures that incredibly fast 1:54.2 lap. The lap time was accomplished despite being held up in traffic (check the end of the video). We can see the potential of the Ascension-R setting to get into the 1:52s and below as we further optimize the package for our complete car program.

These Porsche 991 GT3 RS comparable lap times at Buttonwillow are accomplished with a full interior brand new paper plated 2021 Tesla Model 3 that is produced to Unplugged Performance Ascension-R Specs.

Not bad for an electric car with four doors, two trunks and self driving capabilities!

As raced in this video, this UP Model 3 Ascension-R has factory seats, no weight reduction, factory traction control/track mode and is a daily driver spec car with our optional track day wheel/tire package. The tires used were Yokohama A052 in 315/30R18.
