most cars have a big fuse for ABS that you can remove to disable it. in my car it's a large 50A fuse that requires a 10mm socket to remove.I like it too, but for future self driving cars, as it is now i dont like the ABS - EST and what ever the stuff is called in my car, sadly its so embedded i cant disable it.
In Norway, electric cars are exempt from purchase taxes & VAT & road tax & public parking fees & toll payments, & are allowed to use bus lanes. Little wonder that sales there are so strong. I'd like a P85D, but I've nowhere to plug it inNorway knows what's up, it's I believe the world's 2nd market for teslas?
this is a common myth. yes, electrics and hybrids have regenerative braking, but they also have conventional friction brakes (pads and rotors) just like every other car on the planet. you can't use regenerative braking when your battery is already full, and in a full panic stop like this, you can't dump power into the batteries that fast via regen, so you HAVE to have something else - and so there's the conventional brake pads and rotors to completely stop the car. in addition, they're there as a backup in case of electrical failure, so if for some unknown reason, the car simply shuts down, you still have a way to stop the car. (esp since the parking brake is electric on a tesla and several other vehicles!)Tesla does have regeneration brakes instead of engine braking, but the brakes are already locking the tires, so nothing can slow it down more
no worries, just clarifying, as it's something i've heard a lot regarding EVs and hybrids. now i see you did say "engine braking" and not just "braking". i missed that not-insignificant detail.Yeah, I just meant that instead of actual engine braking it has regen, but that regen is useless when the actual brakes are being used as hard as possible.
