Best run with minimal brake torque. However, long hesitation between electric-only operation and full gas engine power hurts acceleration. Then acceleration comes in surges as engine hovers between 4,000 and 5,000 rpm. Strange feeling.
Bizarre brake feel less obvious in panic stop scenario, but still requires high effort to engage ABS.
Skid pad: Truly out of place here, the Silverado still never does anything dangerous. Just understeer. Lots of it. Slalom: Long, tall and awkward, the Silverado is hard to place. Just keeping the front tire stuck is a challenge but also necessary. Start understeering and a cone-smashing frenzy is sure to ensue. Best just to drive it easy and make it between the cones. No bad manners. Just safe.
