      No, he said was fine in first gear.

      He was clearly using PTM and it was controlling wheelspin. It sounds like when he slammed 2nd, PTM wasn't active anymore and it blew the rear end loose.

      I...

      He didn't lift. :confused:

      He just broke it loose on the 1-2 shift and it got away from him.

      That's about what we expected, permanent AWD systems tend to suck a lot of power. :(

      For doing basic narratives indoors? That's just stupid. You won't hear anything over the noise of the copter anyway.

      It's hard to tell from the Ford video if the system will automatically straighten the trailer or car like the VW system does. I'd like to see a more in depth demonstration of the Ford system.

      I don't get the hate. :confused:

      I've used a similar system on the new Audi Q7 and thought it was pretty slick. You use the MMI knob to steer the vehicle. It even goes a step further and will...

      The 10:31 gearchange looks near instant on my machine, as do the others. It looks like easily the most responsive gearbox I've ever seen in a street car.

      I've owned two transverse quattro Haldex cars too and neither had a hint of torque steer.

      You're right that transverse cars are more susceptible to it, mainly due to transverse AWD systems have...

      It depends on the car and the AWD system.

      Most AWD systems demonstrate no torque steer. Some FWD based systems do - I drove a Ford Explorer AWD that had nearly as much torque steer as a FWD car....

      If you add 1 gallon of Toluene to every 10 of 91, you'll end up with 93 octane.

      In the video they said their Model S sample size is about 1,300.

      Actually I bet it's pretty stable. It's a long wheelbase, low car with a bit of heft to it.

      I drove faster than that in Germany two weeks ago in my Golf rental and it was quite stable, a Magnum...

      They were doing lead/follow. They always tell you not to fall behind so you can get more speed for this specific reason, and that's exactly what he did.

      He didn't follow directions, he crashed...

      Just an FYI - CR buys their own cars, they don't review corporate supplied press cars.

      They occasionally do sample press cars, but those aren't included in official tests or rankings.
