The post-flight analysis of the Crew Dragon Max Q abort test looks excellent so far (see: https://spaceflightnow.com/2020/01/...on-abort-test/). They haven't finished it yet, but what they've seen in the data looks very encouraging (the abort acceleration was even slightly less than expected [3.3 g instead of the nominal 3.5 g], despite the fact that the eight SuperDraco thrusters worked perfectly, providing their full aggregate thrust of nearly 130,000 pounds).
