@Mad Hungarian please chime in on the details but the new EV01 wheels by Fastco are finally real!

Ian sent me some pictures of his car sporting them and I have to say they look amazing! They're a direct alternative to the Tesla Aero wheels and they weight the same including the aero inserts as the bare Aero wheels WITHOUT the caps!

@Mad Hungarian is single-handedly convincing Fast Wheels to fully support the Tesla Model 3.
It's kind of unreal. And awesome. :cool:

@Mad Hungarian, we also need some pics with the inserts removed. :)

EDIT: Oh good, Trevor added one more pic to the end that shows the inserts removed.

@Mad Hungarian,

Looks like a P3D. I'm assuming those EV01's are 18"? What is your energy use (Watts per mile) on average with those EV01's with and without the inserts on?

I was going to ask the same thing.

so @Mad Hungarian Are these wheels for strictly for Performance Models, or will they fit for those of us with humble LRs and SR+ cars? lol

How about using EV01s for winter tire usage? Or would that be overkill?

I would also like to know some stats on efficiency with these beauties on!

Correct! They've traveled a whole 400 yards so far, from our PD garage to the giant tent festival out back for the company's big 30th Anniversary Open House Gala (talk about Just-In-Time-Arrival :))

But aero testing is scheduled this coming week at PMG, Transport Canada's main test facility, on their huge 4 mile high speed oval.
@TrevP is coming down to assist with Test Driver duties as well as to document the whole thing for an upcoming special TOO channel episode.
Fingers crossed that the weather holds!

The same wheel will fit both standard and Performance Model 3's, we have both regular 64.1 center bore version for non-PUO and a stepped-bore 70.2/64.1 version for PUO cars.
They also take the OEM Tesla lugs and center caps :)

And they were fully engineered with winter use in mind, as that's really when you want to squeeze every last mile out of the battery!

Nice. So, when and how much?

Nice!
I wouldn't say that usually but I wish I had been driving on the 40 at that time;)
The other portion of this highway is elevated and probably one of the most congested road in Montréal...
Can't wait to see them in the wild, these will get popular fast.
Anyone looking for a set of fast wheels twist?:)

Fooled you! That was actually the 13 North between Samson and the 440.
I actually had nabbed a better clip on the 40 just a few minutes earlier but as I transitioned to film the right side my boss called and the phone stopped recording.
Both he and Ms. Mad were REALLY confused when it rang inside Magneto and she answered, as I had forgot to deactivate my Bluetooth (the distance that the Model 3 will still pick up my phone when following in another car is really surprising).

Late October.
Canadian MSRP with inserts is $ 339.99 CAN, expect the "street" selling price to be somewhere in the mid two hundred range.
