Okay...I use street/default mode the most. Track mode is seriously killer stiff shocks, but a lot of fun and the exhaust sounds louder. I have tried a variation of settings on default like I did Sport shocks, track transmission, but for daily driving street is the way to go. If you are going to race or practice, go for Track mode. Seriously kicks a$$!!

When I first took delivery, before I left the dealer I configured my Custom drive mode as: Street Traction Control, Sport Suspension, Track Transmission, Paddle Shifters On. I found myself driving in that mode a lot but when just driving around normally I find myself back at Default mode most often since the Track Transmission can be a bit rough and wants to hold gears for as long as possible. Have my default configured the same as your picture.

Sorry, I have no input, Mines in storage.....How are you liking your car so far
Almost 500 miles which will happen tomorrow. It is amazing, can't wait to get some casual driving videos done. Hope you get some drive time soon.

good to know! In sport mode it seemed fun but traction control is auto turned off when I switch to sport mode, scary lol

I only was able to put about 230 miles on my car before storage, but in my limited driving I kept it in track mode
yeah I hope your warmer weather kicks in soon!

LOL! That would be nice, but really doubt it! It gets to 30 around here and it feels like a heat wave!

Gee, I've been running around in eco mode. Is that wrong? o_O

BTW, if any of you believe that, I have some land in Florida for sale. ;)

Predominantly Street mode with paddle shifters off! Only Father Teresa could possibly survive driving the HC in Sport/ track mode in LA Traffic. :D Long distance driving is another story! Also tried driving it in Eco mode for shyts and giggles.......and it rode like a F****g Prius! Quickly abandoned that mode as i suspected some symptoms of buyer's remorse creeping in....:eek::eek:

Custom is Sport for everything except suspension. Better traction with it in street, and is still firm, but not uncomfortable.
Always start in default till oil temp is up to normal range.

When mine comes out of hibernation I"ll let you know!

I'm thinking another week or two and she should be waking up and coming out of the cave.

For driving CUSTOM (street suspension, traction for comfort and safety respectively), paddles on (may need them), tranny in sport (quick shifts not quite Track fast or with the track line pressure), engine...give me a break. Then when on the interstate or freeway and driving I hit ECO. That up shifts the beast up quickly, mellows everything out and tames the throttle response down. CUSTOM is the only mode we can set up for different combinations.

For showing off your lighting fast tranny and proving you can indeed ruin your passengers lumbar disks if they have any remaining hit TRACK mode! One press of the magic TRACK and yes it will even get louder, the valves open the exhaust.

Anything in between and with less traction control, hit SPORT.

Want to be stupid and young again and see if you can drive like the press did for videos, burn rubber like mad and spin out a lot press the traction control button for five seconds while stopped and turn it all off in any mode.....good luck with that.

Exhaust will sound louder in track, the valves are wide open all the time in Track mode.

For me it depends on the mood I'm in. Most of he time, I have it in custom with all street except transmission. Street suspension is the best on street (especially with all the potholes here in PA now) and I like how the sport trans holds shifts longer.

I use a custom setting for driving around town with the three season tires. Sport suspension and street traction. I figure I want a little traction help on all the variety of surfaces out there on the roads. Better to pull a little power than to go up in smoke. Will probably add a set of Nitto NT05s when the weather warms up and might reconsider the traction setting. My transmission is always set on human mode.

Yeah track mode is so bouncy my fiancé complains, street is so much more comfortable for suspensions. Thanks for sharing everyone! And look forward to more shares
