    Hi,
    I would like to know if it's possible to Drift a Tesla, with or without the dual motor into snow ?
    It's just a question about the possibility, not the law, we all know you can't do things like that on public road, but they have some specific place where you can ( I mean on a specific track )
    I've own 3 Subaru in the past and it was fun to drive sideways in SAFE and CONTROL environnement !!!

    Thanks

    It will restrict you going passed any meaningful angle.
    It'll let you spin going straight with TC off, but that's pretty much all the fun you can get
    Stability control unfortunately cannon be fully disabled like on BMW or the likes

    P.S. There is one option where you can pull the fuse and do what you want. It disables all of the nannies

    Thanks for the answer, it's what I'm looking for.
    I'm happy to know they have a way to disable all of the driver's help !!!
    I'm a bit dissapointed Tesla don't have a easily way to do it, but...
    For daily drive, it's a good thing to have all the help, but when you are on a track to have fun, just pure fun, you want to control the car and not let the car control you !!!
    My current GMC make the samething when I disable the TC, when I'm too agressive sideways, they correct me :(

    Thanks again Andrey
