    You will have to manually set to sports mode, what a bummer? Or it is regulated for drivers' safety?

    Not sure the reason why, but yeah, it starts in Street mode by default.

    maybe some lawyer told them that if they don't, some people with red key to enter into the car and drive under "track"....things can happen.

    Simply program your "Custom" drive mode the way you like it. I set mine to maximum power (700+), along with Sport traction control, and Street suspension. Then, when you hop in the car each time, just click the "SRT" button two times rapidly as soon as you start the engine, and it goes directly into your custom mode. That saves you from having to select your preferences each time, it only takes a second, while my Bluetooth takes quite a bit longer, to synch...

    Thanks I guess it is listed somewhere in the manual, but now I know this trick, it is no longer an issue. Thanks.

    You can program the default mode (start up). Enter the selection page then look for change default. It will allow you to set it up the way you want it.

    not fully, still won't allow traction in anything other than street (same with trans if you have an A8).
