Sounds like the traction control system is not or can not lock up the rear axle
Brings up a point. On the 4WD models, is there limited-slip between the left and right wheels in front and back? If not, then "4WD" really means "2WD." Anybody know?

Also, can the 4WD CT be switched to 2WD, or is it permanently in 4?

I think it's safe to assume that it's electronic traction control, i.e. if one wheel spins, the traction control applies the brakes on that wheel, transferring the rear motor torque to the other wheel.

Having said that, since the aftermarket has a limited slip differential available for the model 3 and Y, the after market will probably come out with one for the CT.

Wow, did not know that.

Good video showing a few things.

Chevrolet Trail Boss (same for Sliverado EVs perhaps; except ICE stuff obviously)

Rivian R1T after most recent OTA update.

In this tweet, there is a video of the screen above showing which wheels have torque (ie. 1 front and 1 rear in this example). Pretty cool interface.
