Tesla Model S Ice Drive - Swedish Test Track - YouTube
Hmm... wonder if they pulled the stability control fuse? Pretty hard to get it to drift otherwise.
Still looks like AWD at the 0:45 second mark as you would drive the car with the front wheels as opposed to steer into the slide with a RWD drift to correct the course.
Not sure why TM is posting if not for AWD performance, but if it were truly a AWD video why not make a more robust AWD video a step closer to a Ken Block.
I've had no problems getting my Model S sideways on a wet figure 8 handling track with the traction control disabled from the main screen. No need to pull a fuse to get a little crazy. The difference with TC enabled and disabled was significant.
I suppose with TC disabled you should be able to break the rear loose pretty easily. But I've found that the stability control is pretty active on ice.
I hope they will open this track up to Tesla drivers as some other brands (Porsche?) do
Might be worth a trip when/before my X comes out.

They are clearly counter steering. Looks like RWD to me.
I counter steer all the time when I get the tail out on an AWD car, so that isn't a good indication (I've taken up ice racing). The only way to be sure is to see which wheels spin when you apply throttle in slippery conditions.
I agree. I was just reacting to the argument that you can see this in the video at 0:45
I have found that SC seems very invasive on a dry surface, but it will let you slide around in the snow. I had posted this previously to demonstrate:
Loved the dance! Thanks for sharing!
