The Tesla Model 3 really likes to drift

Who said electric cars weren't fun?

1y ago

The Tesla Model 3 Performance is by far the most interesting version of the Model 3. Its two motors give it a power capable of intimidating many supercars. But of course, the Performance is not the only version of the Model 3. Other more accessible models are available.

Those who don't have the budget or simply don't want a car as powerful as the Model 3 Performance can always go for the Model 3 Standard Range Plus, which also remains an excellent car. You'll have only one electric motor and a range limited to about 250 miles.

But according to the YouTuber Drifts N' Lifts, the Model 3 Standard Range Plus is not interesting for its price. Unlike the Performance, which adopts all-wheel drive, the Standard Range Plus is rear-wheel drive, which would make it much more playful and fun to drive. The YouTuber showed this on video, after a few modifications.

Unlike many modern cars, the Model 3 doesn't allow easy deactivation of its ESP. So you need more computer skills than mechanical skills to do this. Drifts N' Lifts managed to disable the stability control and even neutralized the ABS and regenerative braking. All that's left to do is enjoy the drift, all in silence.

  • That's pretty cool but It's a lot more fun when you have the noise to go with it

  • To the writer, electric cars have motors, not engines. Common mistake, just thought you may want to update your post
