    Had a chance to drive car with a little fun in mind, black key only, all I can say is WOW!

    Having owned SL65 AMG 605Hp
    Various built up 930 turbo Porsche
    Currently 426 hp SS CAMARO


    Got into in very hard with the 500hp car is insane fast, not even going to play with red for a bit.

    I was getting on it hard, today, with the black key, and when it's up in the revs and you jab that throttle, it really launches away from the other vehicles with a vengeance. I'm almost to 500 miles on the odometer, so I look forward to using the red key soon, but judging from the impressive results I'm seeing with only the black key fob, I expect the red key to be hellacious!

    why buy a 707hp car and be afraid to use the red key

    you may not be worthy of the HC?

    put the red key in your pocket and go around 40mph on a uncrowded highway...and floor it to about 120mph

    Eric, do yourself a favor tomorrow. Change out the keys!
    Then go out to a safe place and keep everything in street mode and nail it! You will be fine, if you can handle the Porsche this is easy.

    if the pavement is dry toss out the black key, put the car in sport mode too while your at it
