What’s inside a Tesla Steering Wheel?

What’s inside a Tesla Steering Wheel?


(upbeat music) – Alright, what’s up guys? You probably saw a video
maybe a few days ago, maybe a week ago, I’m not
sure when I put it up, when I was at the Tesla
Model, not even a model, the Tesla semi-truck event in California. – [Driver] Three, two, one. (screaming) – Right now, it’s before that
event so I don’t even know what was launched there. (screaming)
620 miles?! I’m excited to find out what
it’s gonna be in a few hours even though you guys already know. So behind me I have the
three mass produced cars that Tesla has done or is going to do. We’ve got the Model S, which we’ve owned, we have the Model 3, which is
pretty new and lot of people don’t have it yet but it’s
gonna be huge at some point. And then also, the Model X. And so, do you guys remember last year, we went on a trip and we saw,
I think we titled the video ‘You’ve Never Seen a Tesla Like This’? That was our friend Ben
from Unplugged Performance and I figured since I’m in California, and the semi-truck is
literally right next door, we had to go say hi to him and
see what he’s up to right now but there’s a few things that
I want to learn about this car about maybe some modifications
that we should do to our Model X, maybe. And to make it a little bit
faster or make it look better but we’re gonna learn a
little bit about what they do at Unplugged Performance. I’ve got two Ben’s with me. Ben, do you guys remember
him from the video? I’m gonna put that clip in right now. So check this out, Unplugged Performance. – We like super cars. We wanted to make this
more like a Maclaren or a Lamborghini, to give the
feeling of a carbon fiber car. – This is our other friend
Ben, he has a channel called Teslanomics. There is another car that’s
gonna be coming out soon and what is the official name of this car? – Next Gen Roadster, I think. – This car called the Next Gen Roadster. If you haven’t seen if, I’m
gonna put a picture right here, it looks like super futuristic. (upbeat music) Ben won one, he gets one for free. Like 102% off, he won a
competition where he referred, I don’t know, over $6
million worth of Teslas, is that about right,
does that sound right? – For the year, over $6 million, for this competition, over five, yeah. – That is crazy. – In like three months,
it was a short window. – That is so crazy. So, Tesla is such a cool company. They let people refer the cars and because are so cool,
they’ll go ahead and refer them. The one thing that I
thought was interesting is when I watched your video
you didn’t even seem all that excited. (talking in a baby voice)
– Thanks. – Like I would have been pumped. – I didn’t wanna come
across as like, you know, putting it in people’s face that I won or any of those kind of things. – Because some of your
Tesla YouTuber friends probably were in the running too, right? – Well yeah, all of us that are kind of, that are right there, are
all, we all know each other. So I didn’t want to like
throw it out there, but– – Okay, but I’m sure
off camera he was like, “Yes, I just won the Roadster!” He’s like running around the
house, I know what happened, he doesn’t have to admit it
but I know what happened. So, Ben from Unplugged Performance, this is not a commercial, he
did not sponsor this video, we are just down here and it
was so cool when we met him at one in the morning at that station. I was so excited to see that
Tesla that I wanted to learn a little bit more. Ben, if you wouldn’t mind, we’re gonna go, can we go over and like
learn some things about the Tesla Model X and what you guys do? – Totally. – A lot of people talk
about range on Teslas, it’s really important to be
able to have your battery last for a long time. Our Teslas should get around
300, 305, but it’s really, in reality it says like 295. I don’t know if it’s
protecting me from something. If you have a car that
doesn’t weigh as much, it should save you on
your energy, possibly, but then also on your get up and go, like on your acceleration. Alright, what are some
of the things you’ve done to this car to make it so it
actually can have less weight? – Well you look Tesla’s website,
I believe you can actually see a range increase or
decrease based on which wheel choice you choose
and it’s actually true. You’ll get different range
based on the different wheels you use and that has a lot to do with the weight of the wheel. Tesla, I believe the range is about 10-15% on some of the cars, people have reported upwards
of 20% on the Model X with 22 inch wheels versus 20’s. It’s a sad fact they have to
choose between what looks cool versus what will get you a
further distance of travel. So we try to do both. The wheels that we make are
definitely more expensive than the wheels that come on the car and there’s a reason for that. It’s just much more expensive
to make forged wheels. – Okay, so to that point,
that’s a really good point. You probably didn’t see
this, Ben, but I did a video getting rid of our Tesla
and I was kind of trolling people ’cause you don’t
see videos of people just getting rid of it. So I listed all the reasons
why we’re getting rid of it and one of the main one was,
it was a rear-wheel drive car and in Utah, I had the 21 inches on there, and the performance was terrible. We couldn’t even drive in that much snow, it was too dangerous. So everybody’s like,
“Well, you should have got “19 inch wheels.” I don’t want 19 inch
wheels, I don’t want that. It’s a Tesla Model S,
it’s a beautiful car, it’s fast, it’s sexy, I don’t want it. So that makes sense. Like this one, you’re
getting the bigger tires but they weigh less, so
you’re driving faster, right? – Yeah, so, we’re able
to make a 22 inch wheel that weighs about 22 pounds, which is lighter than
most car companies make 19 or 18 inch wheels. It’s not gonna help you in
snow ’cause a lot of that has to do with the tire
you choose as well, but overall, there’s
something to be said about taking weight out of the car,
especially off the wheels or off the brakes. You’ll notice our brakes are
super excessive on this car but they’re really cool and
they’re carbon ceramic rotors, so it brakes exceptionally
well at high speed, which for this being a P100D
is a useful attribute to have. But besides that, they’re
actually much lighter as well. Even actually the lug
nuts, if you look at it, notice they’re a different
color, they’re blue. And they’re titanium lug
nuts that are I believe 46% lighter than the factory lug nuts. In our case, if we can get
100 pounds out of the car in key areas of the car, it
actually will make a difference as far as range. – Let’s say that your car comes out, your Roaster, your fancy car,
comes out like next week. If he brought it here,
like, what kind of thing would you wanna do to it
that you could think of to make it faster or
would you even need to because it’s already fast enough? I’m truly putting you on the
spot, I didn’t even prep you with this at all. – The first question would
be whether you’d want it to be any faster. At ready it’s gonna be ridiculous. – Yeah, I think I’m still
fascinated with the idea of breaking that two
second barrier, 0 to 60, which, there’s no practical need for that but I would love to see,
because I understand it’s, there is a theoretical
limit based on the physics of just how cars work that
if you don’t have drag racing tires or something like
that, it won’t work. So I’d be really curious to
figure out what we could do that is somewhat practical
to break that barrier. – [Announcer] This will be the first time that any car has broken
two seconds at 0-60. – Alright, we’re giving you a impromptu what’s inside video right now. If you’ve ever wondered
what’s inside a Tesla airbag on the car, well, here’s the front of it, and here’s the back, you can see. Watch it just explode in
my face like right now. But yeah, that’s kinda funny,
he just randomly had this. What’s cool about it though
is it makes it looks like the inside of the car
is completely autopilot, look at that. That’s what it looks like
when it’s off, right there. Can you see that right
there, like as you turn it, you can see the little
gear that runs through it? Whoa, that’s super interesting. I did not intend on showing you this but that is super cool. Okay, now, the inside of this car, you know we are big BYU sports fans. Blue and white, Lincoln’s
room is blue and white, we love ’em, blue and white. This car is sweet, so you’ll
never see a Tesla like this, never in the world, except for this one. Check out this blue leather. This is the factory leather right here, this blue leather right
here and right there. I’m getting in it, I wish you the best. This blue leather right
here is from a Rolls Royce, they actually sourced it from Germany. Some of the Rolls Royce’s
they make it with blue leather and so this guy was
like, “Hey, I wanna have “blue leather,” so they
reached out to some company, some supplier in Germany
that makes the blue leather and here we are sitting
in a Tesla that has blue, fancy, fancy leather. The exact cost of this
car is somewhere around a quarter million dollars, maybe more, I don’t know the exact
amount but it is somewhere around there with all the modifications. This is carbon fiber, this
is real carbon fiber on here, this isn’t some wrap
that is placed on there. But they actually put carbon
fiber on here, on here, all along this, down
here is all carbon fiber. (upbeat music) Alright, one thing that
you’ll notice on this Tesla that’s different than my
Model X is right here, there’s a lip that comes
out more, it just comes out. Because of that, look at
the logo, it’s like almost if you’re sitting straight
up, you can’t really see it because it’s on such an angle here. What is the thinking behind
this, this part right here? Why is it sticking out? – Well, for one, it looks
awesome, that’s always important. But usually people add wings
and they go really high and that creates down
force and creates drag so the car basically will lose range. This is super sleek, it actually
doesn’t stick up at all, it just kinda comes out. And it’s really just designed
for airflow management, just to bring air off the back of the car in a really seamless way. So it’s sleek and it’s kind of a modern, aerodynamic version of a racing wing, but more for aero-efficiency
than for down force. – So, to give you an idea
of what the heck he’s talking about, there’s a car over here, some of you guys will know
what it is in the comments, I’m not much of a car
guy other than Tesla. I think it’s called a Get ‘Er Done. – Get ‘er done. – That’s what it’s called,
it’s called the Get ‘Er Done. Check out this, this is
what he’s talking about, this is what a race car has. This giant spoiler that puts
all this down force on here so that when you’re driving,
these tires will stick to the ground more. – [Ben] That does not help range. – It does not, huh? – [Ben] Not at all. – But, you can look cool, you get ‘er done on the race track. It’s a GTR, I know it is,
but get ‘er done sounds funny because I’m dorky. So Model S, Model 3, Model X. Let me know in the comments, like, even the grill, the front of
this is different looking. That is all replaced. So, we just showed you a bunch
of things with the Tesla, we’ve got the interior on
the Model X that’s different, we’ve got the wheels and the
brakes that are different, but then we also have the
back that is different with it sticking out. You know me, I wanna do
all of them to the car. You know Leslie, she’s really economical and she won’t wanna do all of them. Let me know in the comments,
like which one of these things do you think is cool? What things do you think that we should do to our actual Model X, if anything, to make it look better. We did the wrap but I think we
need to do a little bit more. We’re gonna go make a video
right now with everybody, both Ben’s on your channel
and talk about your car ’cause your car, what year is that? – 2013. – 2013. – You had a 2013 also, right? – I did too so I’m curious,
we’re gonna talk about things that maybe I didn’t like
about the Tesla Model S that maybe could be fixed
and he may even do some of those things or sell his
car, so go check out the video, we’ll link it right here. And yeah, thanks for watching.

  4. I'm a car developer I know it's inside a Tesla steering wheel number one you've got an airbag sensor that's shaped of a square number 2 you've got a button sensor that used for the horn number 3 you've got a lead that senses from the airbag and number for you have another lead that send so the horn signal and Number 5 you've got knobs inside these little tiny circuit boards send signal into the centre console
