I would have to an EV that has a motor on each wheel to see if that changes the driving dynamics. It seems like it would be costly to do so and increase complexity and weight. ... ... more
I'm with you all the way on disliking brakes for limiting slip or torque vectoring. However I think any real LSD worth its salt would be a notable range hit on an EV. My last ICE car was fulltime AWD with 3 LSDs, including fully lockable center. Awesome traction, terrible efficiency (for a small sporty car). Tri motors ... ... more

Well, break out the checkbook and wrenches then! ;) [link] I'd love to see someone do that who actually knows how to drive and see if it makes a big difference. It would move you out of EV-X though. ... more
