The wife and I went to Lake Tahoe last weekend when the snow started. Really beautiful there in Truckee, Lake Tahoe and surrounding area.
We where in Reno when it started to snow and got to wondering what is the best setup for driving in snow.
DonnerPass was restricted to 4 wheel drive with M+S tires so we are OK there. First time in snow in my X and decided to but some snow cables just in case. I went to Tesla first to ask do I put them on the front tires or back tires. Oddly, they were not sure. After some research it was determine back tires.
Then I got to thinking, do I turn on Slip Start?, do I turn off ReGen braking? I definitely set it to Chill mode.
It would be great if Tesla had one button driving modes for best setup.
Needless to say the X did not have any troubles with snow and ice even without the snow cables.
How do others setup their X when driving in snow?
