    Anybody else out there that wish (like me) there was a button or some form of manual tactile control on the center console to toggle between drive modes (Sport, Track, Custom, etc)? I LOVE so much about this car, however I do think they made a mistake by placing so many control functions within the computer, especially ones which require you to take your eyes off the road while driving. I find my self switching between modes often, like say between cruising on the highway and taking an off-ramp, or simply just entering a set of twisties on a back road. It would be nice to be able to simply reach down to the console and hit a toggle to flip between a few of the modes.

    On my 392 Charger, the SRT button on the dash responds to a double tap to switch modes. Not sure about HC or Challengers.

    we can't have it all...but I agree, on my bmw I get 2 buttons on the steering wheel which allows me to preset any 2 modes I want. You can switch modes on the fly, I have one button for street/traffic and the other for spirited driving :) very convenient

    The failure to put a drive mode switch ON THE WHEEL was always a major complain for me.

    Oh well.

    ?? One tap of the traction control button right by shifter and mine goes directly into sport mode. No need to do anything with touch screen.

    I really don't find too many times with all the methods above that I'm not in the mode I need to be, when I want to be.
