His video clearly shows and states 18 amps regen. 18a x 156v= 2800 watts!

2800w at 3000rpm is 6.5ftlbs.

Hard to say the exact torque being applied, but in 3rd gear it would be about 3:1 times the rear-end at about 3.5:1, so the torque applied is multiplied about 10X!

So that is ~65ft lbs.

Here in Montana, just tapping the brakes can cause sliding, so 65ftlbs would definately cause it under slick conditions.
