The traction electronics are very good. It won't oversteer or understeer at the default settings with the 20" tires and Dynamic Mode or Eco. Due to traffic, I did not test with traction off. It accelerates at about the same rate as it does when it's dry, with no TC lag.
But I really need to test in the rain on a closed course so I can play with it more. For urban drivers, it's a very safe setup without harming the acceleration noticeably. The latest GM software will allow mild oversteer, but that's RWD and it's deliberate.

Wanted to ask, does the read window really stay clear of rain from airflow as Jaguar claims?
Yes the back window stays clear without defrost, but visibility out the back window is not great. This is one car that could really use a Digital Rearview Mirror so you see right through the headrests, pillars, and passengers.
I had ceramic wax put on, and some kind of advanced Rain-X type product. After driving in heavy rain 2 days straight, the car looked like I just washed it. I was impressed.

@McRat Do you know what brand of Ceramic Wax? I have been looking into this and trying find the best product/dealer to do it.

Don't know tonight, but I will post it in the AM. I was impressed and I tend to think most auto products are snake oil with exaggerated claims.
