    It's really cool how they have some telemetry info in this video; something I haven't seen too much of.

    It would be nice if there were also graphics for throttle and brake (broken down into regen and friction) positions. I think the graphic here was a combination of lateral G with acceleration and breaking which didn't look very clear or responsive.

    There was a beeping sound at ~1:03, does anyone have any idea what that was?

    It's a warning sound from the VDS. Likely the PEM is getting hot.

    Thanks. I heard some owners were complaining about this. Hopefully some of the modifications in the Sport model mitigates this issue.

    You can get warnings about the motor, PEM & battery pack. Even the sport can drop power if you really push it hard enough. It doesn't end your fun though... Just cuts back power a bit until things have a chance to cool down.
