    Went out to lunch with some co-workers and tried two Ludicrous launches. Both failed as the traction control light was on constantly all the way up to 50 MPH and I didn't break 250 kW instead of the 430 kW I would have normally hit with an 81% SOC.

    Is anyone else seeing traction control issues with todays update on their PDL?

    Is that 430kW number the best you've seen? others are reporting 455 with recent builds. Wondering if early p85ds are limited with 430 with only later ones getting 455.

    traction/stability control functionality seems to be "in flux", and I put it like that because the trend isn't a slow improvement.

    The best I've seen is 456KW at 91% with max battery ready. 80% is less.

    Nobody is reporting 455KW at 80%. In fact, I think I have the highest reported KW reading of any upgraded P85DL to date at 456KW at 91% with max battery ready.
