I took down the video because I was receiving threats.
Was going maybe 70 mph on autopilot. Car started fishtailing and then hydro planning. Normally if my car hydroplanes I don't tap the breaks or the gas...i let it slow down by itself and steer to avoid the fish tail.
In this case, my car just started fish tailing worse and worse and worse and then started doing 360's. My theory is even though auto steer was disabled...TACC was not disabled and the car kept on trying to speed up when it lost traction and kept on trying to speed up more and more. Anyone know if this is TACC would work. Will it only get turned off if I tap the breaks or use the gear shifter?
Getting my tires checked tomorrow (will get new ones if tread is too low). Sent a bug report to Tesla. Trying to learn more why this happened.
