Re: Hardware update gained 15% range

Aparrently the Tesla model 3 comes with removeable wheel trims which sit on top of the alloys. Taking these off can have a 10% negative impact on performance so perhaps aero is the biggest factor if you are regularly driving a motorway speeds given that the rolling radius of the 18 and 22 inch setup...
