"Electric-only operation: Exceptionally quiet with just a little bit of motor whine, but mostly just winid noise. Very linear acceleration; no shifting, obviously.
Consistent stopping distances, negligible fade, firm pedal, but some rear end wiggle and wander. Pronounced dive.
Skid pad: Stability control is non-defeatable. Very little if any brake corrections. Rather it just hits a wall of understeer. Steering is light and vague. Slalom: Prefers less is more with as little steering input as possible. Steering is responsive but feels vague. If stability control does begin to intervene, then the run is no good.
