I'm not competent to comment on the purely electrical elements and
calculations, especially when carried out to 4 decimal places.

That said, I think there was some experimental design errors or
misunderstandings in the original 356e tests that has lead to this

I think this wordy reply would be summed up by saying how many tests were there? An individual test can be discounted if the data provided is sullied in any way. So how many tests of each condition were there?

Common sense says wise use of regen braking is better than friction braking. Or am I alone in this foresight?
