wwest Posted September 29, 2006 Share Posted September 29, 2006 http://www.freepatentsonline.com/6588860.h...ghlight=5343970 Wow...Double that, WOW..! I have NEVER seen a more direct admission of the hazards of engine braking on a FWD or front biased AWD in my life, never really expected too, from FORD yet. Good-o. You should note that the FEH/MMH regenerative braking is significantly reduced ONLY at, near, or below freezing. Regenerative braking is instantly reduced to zero if ABS needs to release the brakes to prevent lockup. But what about the ICE itself, does it raise the ICE RPM simultaneously to prevent actual engine braking? Now I am very sure, certain, sure, I never want to drive a FWD or front torque biased AWD in wintertime conditions. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
