Yes, very useful for force-charging the HVbatt for various tests. Just stomp the brake and gas in D, and the engine will rev up, then the rpms will drop as the battery charges up.

It wasn't exactly what I had in mind. But it makes me wonder if keeping the shifter in P and the parking brake engaged while hitting the throttle would lead to the same effect.

Rare 2-day January thaw in Ohio before temperatures snap back below freezing. What a cruel tease. C'mon Springtime! I want to get back out into the garage!
