Enabling slip start doesn’t do much but it seems that if you could disable to speed sensors on the front wheels then spinning the tires would work.

Does anyone see a reduced version of track mode coming to the LR RWD?

For information, slip start is not a track mode. It's for starting to move from a stop on slippery surfaces like mud, gravel, etc.

Sasha's traction control defeat is sort of like track mode: https://www.mountainpassperformance.com/the-future/

I hope they make Track Mode available in the future but I'm guessing it would only go to AWD if they decide to release it.

Making this assumption because I think Track Mode is currently designed to work with both motors.

Agree. While some kind of track mode would be possible with a single motor (think larger slip angles allowed), dual motors allows more things to happen, like understeer from increasing front motor torque, so yes, it's definitely more flexible with two motors.

I certainly would love a RWD track mode as well for some fun in the snow.
We know it can be done if you physically disconnect the ABS sensors, but that is very much not a good idea.
I agree @MountainPass has figured out how to do it electronically but they haven't been willing to explain much.
Maybe we would be better off begging Elon on twitter :)

You would be better off begging Elon! The only thing we will be sharing is the link to buy our VSC Killer!
