Just wondering if anyone knows the threshold conditions for when brake steer is activated? I ask because I've noticed what I think may be brake steer even at speeds of 10-15mph, uphill with very light throttle to maintain speed, which seems odd. There is a low-speed uphill right turn into the office parking lot that I take every day, and I hear what sounds like brake actuation (slight metallic scraping sound) while I have the wheel turned, and that the sound stops abrubtly once I straighten the steering wheel. Again, the sound is slight, and I think I can only hear it because there is a high brick wall right next to the road at that point, and the sound is reflected off the wall. All the while I am not on the brakes at all, with light throttle to maintain about 10-15 mph. up the hill.

Has anyone else noticed similar? Or know what the conditions are for brake steer to be active? Seems odd to have brake steer active in such a situation.
