    Wow. Since owning a regular 85KwH MS for about 7months I finally disabled traction control after a little spring rain. 5 minutes later and it is back on!

    I've never been going 30Mph or so and tapped an accelerator and have the rear wheels so easily break loose and spin so easily. I know it would be fun to leave it like this, but I value the back end of the car staying behind me 99.99% of the time.

    Anyone else play with theirs?

    I have a dual motor which doesn't really have that option...but allegedly... a P85+ (which may occasionally be had as a loaner) can leave quite a strip a rubber on dry pavement. ;)
