The Tesla Model 3 has a lot on its shoulders, facing delays, struggles with build quality and, most importantly, how neutral its handling is on Mid Ohio, one of America’s best road courses.

You may think that the big question about the Model 3 is if Tesla can make them at their anticipated price, well enough and in sufficient quantity, but really, all you need to know is how well it handles Thunder Valley.
