I argued back and forth with my supplier saying that EABS had to be regen, which is by nature ABS. I just couldn't believe they were running plug braking with no exterior resistor to dissipate the heat. It is more sophisticated than the DIY some have used on the board, because it is switched on an off using the fets and not just a solid short of the phases. This EABS thing has led the Chinese to believe that regen is bad, and is hard on the controller, so regen is rarely used over there. That's probably due to the low power batteries they use more than anything else.
The problematic result is the lack of innovation related to regen. How can we still not have variable force regen other than with expensive controllers? Of course there's also the caveman-like throttle control we still suffer too.
