“Highland” Model 3

**UPDATE – Highland RWD & LR are APPROVED for All Events**

New for 2024, Tesla has released their “Upgraded”, or “Highland” Model 3. We do not expect any significant changes from the original Model 3, both regarding on-track performance as well as suspension modification compatibility, or power limiting capabilities. However, we do still need to validate this platform for eligibility in the Model 3 Challenge, and an update will be given as soon as eligibility is confirmed.
