Be careful youngsters, taking a corner too fast in a CT trimotor may prove to be a damaging experience. Take a lesson from us old motorcycle guys and girls. Break BEFORE you enter a turn or curve and accelerate through it. If you find yourself suddenly facing an obstacle in a curve,, straighten the wheels, slow down and steer around it. You’re going to have to use a motorcycle SEE driving technique: Search, Evaluate, Execute. A trimotor is as fast as a motorcycle in a sea of slower Vehicles. Maybe that’s why the CT has a yoke.

I wonder if a lot of that might be mooted by torque vectoring. Are understeer and oversteer going to be a thing of the past? Will there be a selection of modes in one of which, for example, the truck takes care of everything for you and in another of which its like the old days with torque vectoring turned completely off? And gradations in between?

I would think that a truck with around 900 hp would require some serious baby sitting/ traction control, for us Average at best drivers.

They do have these features and track mode and you can change them 1 through 10 so I see that being the case here.

The model 3 performance and the model S
Could you tell me which screen I go to to find this? All I can find is "Slip Mode" which can only be turned on or off.

All also note that Teslas controls never go from 1 to 10. Elon's cars go up to 11 (volume and fan),

So to get it I don't go to any particular page. I go back to the dealer and trade in my X for a 3. This mode is not available in the X or 3. That doesn't mean that these cars don't do torque vectoring. It just means the driver doesn't have as much control over it (on or off).

Most important to understand is that if you count electronic braking as half a DOF at each wheel (because it can only apply drag) and each motor as a full DOF (because it can drag and thrust) the current cars have 4 DOF thrust vectoring. The TriMotor CT will have 5 because of the third motor.

Whether the UI in the CT is more like that in the 3 or S/X remains to be seen. One thing we can be sure of it that there will be options related to towing.
