    AMCI is a company that helps auto manufacturers market their products, which sometimes includes conducting dynamic tests against their competition. They were intrigued by what's been going on with the Model 3, so they got one and ran their full braking protocol on it.

    I don't own a 3 but do have an X on order - the testing crew are friends of mine, thought the group here might find it interesting.

    All good. Not sure why the video had to be 20 minutes! They didn't see any difference with regen or without. It would have been interesting if they had tested a pre update Model 3. They didn't really have any idea how to explain the inconsistent results of the bad software. I still think it was some sort of interaction between regen and the ABS controller. We may never know...

    In other words, these differences are probably statistically insignificant.
