I'm eagerly anticipating the possibility of lowering the height and driving around like a sports car most days, but then at the touch of the screen, having a tow suspension set up and yet another touch of the screen, off-road setup, and then also custom for when I tow offroad or do other activities that a preset may not be optimized for but I can fine tune to my desired effect.
And I'm eagerly anticipating the possibility of raising the height!

My residence, in Canada's snow belt, has a 1000'-long laneway. With 4WD and raised ride-height, I could sell my tractor-mounted snowblower!

Which leads to a question. Not sure how the motor at each end in the two-motor would be connected to the drive wheels. From what info on the CT is available, and your knowledge of how Tesla 4WD cars work, can anybody tell whether the CT's traction would be, in effect, "limited slip" side-to-side and front-to-back?

By the same token, are Tesla 4WD cars limited-slip? Are snow tires available for them? And could they be mounted on cheapie rather than Tesla rims?

Thanks.

Well, front to back is controlled by software, it isn't a hard linkage. I think they currently use an open differential, but if you're really interested in how Tesla has done it (and how they might) the guy to look for (and is everywhere) is Sandy Munro. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCj--iMtToRO_cGG_fpmP5XQ

If you are getting the trimotor then the rear wheels each have A motor and the front it’s own motor on a limited slip differential but being a truck with high end off-road aspirations, I anticipate ability to go full lock when needed up front.
