5% boost

5% boost

Did anyone get it today?

geno.kearney | March 15, 2019

Not me.

JustSaying | March 15, 2019

Nope...

Haven't seen any messages or updates yet!

I received an update. But I. Don't know how to tell if it's the boost.

2019.5.15

CharleyBC | March 15, 2019

We have the range boost with 5.15, but I don'[t know how to tell whether I got a 5% power boost. I doubt whether I'm perceptive enough to notice different acceleration of only 5%.

It looks like they started rolling it out today https://www.teslarati.com/tesla-model-3-peak-power-software-update/amp/

2019.8.2

20dieter10 | March 17, 2019

My notes on 2019.8.2 said I have dog mode no mention of 5% increase in power on my AWD.

ytr3wq | March 17, 2019

My LR RWD feels quicker with 2019.15.5. We need someone to actually measure all of the models to see what happened.

5% equates to about .3 seconds. Should be noticeable.

@M3User...

2019.5.15? I dont believe we’re into week 15 yet.

wyatt57350 | March 17, 2019

2019.8.2 LT RWD. My release notes state there is a 5% increase in performance. Notice it's easier to break the grip with winter tires on dry payment now, so the increase is noticeable.

efuseakay | March 17, 2019

8.2 has the 5% PEAK power increase. It's not a 5% increase across the board. It's probably for better 1/4 times. Still waiting for the update on my September 3P. Been stuck on 50.6.

And yes people, 2019.8.2 is the latest. They don't necessarily go by "date".

So, I'm curious; how does the 5% power boost manifest itself? Are the motors allowing increased output?

Daryl | March 18, 2019

@rdavis "2019.5.15? I dont believe we’re into week 15 yet."

The first 4 digits indicate the year. The second set of digits represents the week that the major version originally came out. The third set is the minor update version.

So 2019.5.1 was originally released (or developed) in week 5 of 2019. 2019.5.15 is minor version 15 of that release.

In-between minor versions don't always appear in public (i.e.2019.5.13 etc.).

ADinM3 | March 18, 2019

@M3User, how did you measure this by chance? Encouraging, and sounds like the car will be back to what it was in early 2018, i.e. 4.6-4.8s range some people measured, before the infamous slowdown debate of version 18.3.

bbrogers21 | March 18, 2019

I have 2019.5.15 LR RWD M3. Don’t notice the increased range. Still looks like 310 mi.

richardls | March 18, 2019

I'm in the same boat as @20dieter10. Now have 2019.8.2 on LR AWD, but release notes make no mention of performance upgrade. Seem like LR AWD non-P doesn't get anything right now. Similar comments on this article: https://www.teslarati.com/spacex-crew-dragon-emergency-landing/

rkalbiarEV | March 18, 2019

I have the range boost but dunno about the power boost. As stated before, if power has gone up 5%... My butt dyno cannot tell.

Early, I understand the nomenclature. I was referring back to M3user and ytr3wq posing their firmware as 2019.15.5... which isn’t possible.

natefl | March 19, 2019

Any P3D- owners get a power increase yet?

eejoby | March 19, 2019

I have a 2018 LR and broke traction for the first time. Received the update last night. 5% is very noticeable.

Neomaxizoomdweebie | March 19, 2019

2018 MR. got 2019.8.2 last night with 5% boost in the release notes.

ytr3wq | March 19, 2019

Sorry about the number swap. My LR RWD is on 2019.5.15. I glad others are confirming that this model is noticeably quicker with this software push, I will continue my informal acceleration tests at every opportunity.

Grinning at least 5% more.

neylus | March 19, 2019

@eejoby - My AWD did that yesterday too. Very interesting.

gtbuzz | March 19, 2019

Just got 8.2 yesterday on my AWD (non-p). Like 20deiter10, no mention of power bump in release notes

finman100 | March 19, 2019

worn tires could also explain breaking traction grip? just saying, i know my tires wear a bit more because of all the fun, am i right!? plus the miles keep adding up (more tire wear) because, again, it's such a joy to drive...

mehingle14 | March 19, 2019

My P3D+ is currently running 5.15. I looked at my Wife's LR model last night, and she is running 7.17

I've yet to test properly, but it appears that she has enhanced range. 5.15 is not the 5% increase for my P3D+.
