When pushing through corners hard, where should regin be set? Had the unpleasant experience of the back end sliding. When it did, I slowed down and the car really became uncontrollable. Scared the crap out of me, fortunately there was plenty of shoulder on the road for the car to ride on. I didn’t feel like I was pushing the car that hard and was wondering if the regin setting was responsible for the eratic behavior?

What tires are you on and what was the ambient temp? Also did you have your foot off the accelerator all the way with high regen? Essentially were you breaking with the motors?

When you brake or chop the throttle abruptly when the car is oversteering, it aggravates the situation by removing even more weight from the rear tires and reducing traction further. The correct response is to countersteer while applying some throttle. Apply more throttle as needed if you want to sustain the drift, but not on the street. :D

But I am puzzled why the Stability Control did not come on. The car doesn't want to oversteer easily with it on.

Don't take this wrong, but it's probably time for you to sign up for a 1-2 day Performance Driving School. I still go them every couple of years to keep my skill level up.

I have never managed to lose grip, front or back, with this car. Granted I haven't gone to the track, but at full ******* speeds on a twisty road, I haven't had this happen. 20" with all seasons.

A dip, bump, patch of oil, or wet spot could all make a slip happen.

If I was track driving, I'd definitely keep regen on high. It makes weight transfer easier for turn in.

Not sure but foot was probably off throttle completely. That said I question if the regin should be on at all. Just wondering what the answer is. I have taken BMW driving school class and wasn’t able to achieve the abrupt correction the iPace displayed. Not saying it’s a problem, just wondering what the correct setting is.

I would say if you are not yet used to modulation from acceleration to regen/breaking yet you will essentially be “braking” when you have your foot off and you should use low regen setting initially until you adjust to not automatically taking your foot off completely.

I have the 22" wheels and all seasons and even in the snow, I couldn't really get the car to slide - not even while trying to have a some fun! I find the tractions almost an annoyance haha. In my X5 with the 20" wheels that were super wide I could make it slide around corners a bit when it was slippery out. The IPace just grips and grips.

Did you have the lane detection (or whatever it's called) on? I found that when that was on, it would sometimes get confused on some roads and violently correct me back into a lane.

Chatter in my steering wheel

I've had my I Pace for 3 months (1500 miles) and noticed going from black top to cement bridges and expansion joints (a change in surface)over 55 miles an hour I get some steering wheel chatter and the steering gets a little squirrlee. I'm running 20's, I brought it back to the dealer and can't find an issue. Tire pressure is fine and front end is aligned. It happens with and without adaptive steering on and off. Anyone else have this issue. Katatonic...

Add some toe-in to the alignment? Zero toe will make the car more squirrely.

I have 3 roundabouts I regularly drive through, in addition to a U-turn I make alot. I have 22" wheels. My car plows the front tires and powers dies hard in the u-turn. Just about the same, but at a faster speed in the roundabouts. Changing to Dynamic mode does not change the power dying. I am not sure how guys have driven it fast on a racetrack with the power dying so much. I am sure it would do poor in an autocross. Nothing like having an old 396 Chevelle with skinny tires pass you coming out of a roundabout while you pump the accelerator pedal until it starts working again!

Am most surprised you can find 3 roundabouts in the entire US ;)

Not sure what you are experiencing. I find taking roundabouts at speed is the only time I've felt the rear wheels break loose on the I-Pace. Plenty of power to pull out of the roundabout

Come over and check out the mid-Atlantic and Northeast states. Everything from the tiny flowerbed in the middle of an intersection all the way to those monsters where you can incorporate a restaurant or other business. BTW I love returning to the UK just to navigate 4 or 5 roundabouts every mile.

Sorry to divert the thread have driven in the Northeast a bit and haven't really encountered many I had assumed roundabouts just weren't built in the US good to learn something.

Have driven Boston to North Vermont and don't recall seeing any there too, although more recently have driven more on the west coast.

To return to topic can the back wheels lose enough grip to drift? I would have thought the car would fight hard against the sort of slide you need to drift effectively?

I’ve managed to unintentionally put my I-Pace on 20” all seasons in a 4-wheel slide around a 120 degree right hander on ramp. The pavement was wet. Kind of fun and easily controllable. My other cars would have slid out the rear end.
