Maximum regen rate?

Anyone know what the max regeneration rate on a Gen 1 is? I see up to -40 on the kw meter but is all of that being absorbed by the battery or at some point is just dissipated?

Correct me if I'm wrong but my theory is when you brake lightly only one motor is regening. Then when you depress the brake a bit further the clutches work their magic and engage the second motor so it then regens as well.

I say that because when I slow down from highway speeds gradually braking more I'll reach a point where I hear a clunk or something (clutches doing their thing) then the regen amount jumps way up to nearly 60 or so.
