    I just got the 17.34 update installed.
    Has anyone noticed less of a slow down (almost none!) when lifting your foot off the accelerator pedal (normal regenerative braking on)?
    I almost got too close to the car ahead of me at the stop sign today and noticed this change immediately since the update.

    Anyone else or am I going crazy?

    After Elon promised stronger regen... I have felt less. Could be mental though.

    I would doubt/hope not. You almost have to have the car not tell you there's an update as this sort of thing is getting to be 'they tell you there's a change', you say 'ooh, better' and they didn't change anything. :D

    Sorry to sound overly obvious, but are you sure you didn't just have a near-full charge?

    Or the "dreaded" yellow dotted line (I know it's still summer but noticed the OP is in Chicago and it was quite cool last night)

    Actually, this might be the case. I didn't realize the regen braking is not as noticeable when the battery is near full.
