    Who else had this problem? Any one know what the reason is for this problem?

    The traction and regen quits when i accelerate too hard. I have to shut down the car entirely (stop, park, get out) and then restart the car to get it working again.

    It is very annoying.

    It looks like the message is saying to contact Tesla for service. Have you done that? It may be a problem with the car and not related to your driving style.

    Having said that, I know ABS systems will shut down if the car senses that they have been "overused" and could therefore be overheating.

    Contact Tesla, it's definitely a problem and not normal.
