Re: Drifting the i3, now with no traction, ABS or regen.

Seriously? Driving a car with no ABS is "unsafe and stupid"? So you think that everyone who drives a classic car is an unsafe idiot? That's sort of a broad statement........
If you disable ABS, Regen and traction control you are driving the same sort of car the entire planet drove up until a few years ago. Were we all stupid and unsafe then too? How did we ever survive........?

Why don't you just switch to "N" the last 5km when you brake?! Same effect but safe because you then still have the break booster (powerbrake) (don't know the correct word).
It looks like you said that switching to Roller Mode is "very unsafe and stupid". Did I get that wrong?
And does not roller mode turn an i3 into a car with no ABS, no traction control and no Regen? Just like any other car from the old days....... How is driving like that unsafe and stupid?

I think DeJay58 meant if you switch off the safety features it becomes unsafe :)
