Reverse gear is limited in km/h on EVs, by the way?


Restricted to 17km/h... the test will not be very representative... The influence of aerodynamics at this speed being very minimal...

Aero is good but safety is better: a priori you load the rear overhang much more than the front of the trailer...so be careful on the road! It could be a severe tack!

But I thought it was a 750 kg your trailer? : Lol:

Yes 750...Reinforced by me with an axle of 1800 capacity.... And yes it was necessary to move forward to the maximum to have weight on the arrow...The back of the leon was 15 cm from the Caddy ... We needed the Place de la Concorde to turn without it touching... The trip was done at a moderate pace... There was 150kg of cast iron added to the caddy... It worked Very well done...
