Bug: Reverse deceleration faster than forward deceleration

I am following along with this video and I have encountered a bug that I cannot find. The controls are working great so far, but in the case of moving forward, the acceleration slows as it should, but then reverses in the +y direction faster than in the -y direction. I will link the repo at the bottom of this text. What could be causing this issue?

We’re going to need a lot more information to reproduce this. How are you seeing this behavior. What exact steps do we need to execute?

do you mean that if you make a U turn the car goes faster in reverse?

the velocity is based on absolute direction, not on relative direction of the car

UPDATE: I was able to fix the problem myself.
