    Model 3's handling in the wet is just incredible. I am passing other cars with ease while they're struggling to put the power down out of corner. However, physics is still physics at the end of the day and the available grip is only about 60% compare to a dry fast track.

    Taking T6 and T2 too fast in the rain is very interesting. Check out session 2 at 1:00 as well as 10:45.
