you barely use the regular brake pedal at all. only under hard braking conditions. just modulating the throttle pedal should be all that is needed for average daily driving. you would still use mechanical brakes to stop all the way, but most at speed maneuvers are modulated through the throttle only.

the regen braking pulls back a lot more than i thought it would compared to other hybrid/electric cars ive been in. i like the theory, but i'm not sure what this does to the 'drift-ability' of the car. sadly, i wasn't allowed to make any tire noise
