So i am wearing my tesla grin. Got mine yesterday in norristown pa and had to drive home to south jersey. I had two options: turnpike it or drive through philadelphia at rush hour. Still getting used to the car with rain and sleet coming down i header for philly figuring the slower pace would allow me some quality time with the car and let me ease into all the controls.
The drive was fantastic!. I don't think i have ever enjoyed a rainy traffic jam as much. To my amazement i barely ever hit the brake pedal in 50 miles of stop and go traffic.'so much for the time it would take to adapt to the regenative breaking.
So my realization was aside from the brakes practically never wearing out, the wheels of a tesla shouldn't get covered with brake dust as much as an ICE. Has anyone experienced this?
