    Does anyone drive in drift mode.

    I really wish they would've called this something a little more mature but for the sake of this thread let's remember that just because it's called drift mode doesn't mean you have to be drifting. It just changes the way the power is applied. I personally might like this mode the best as it does give the rear the most power. If I dont like it, i'll probably stick to track mode with dampening turned down

    Does anybody here daily drive in drift?

    If not what are your favorite settings?

    spend most of my time in S mode

    I like the steering in both normal and drift. honestly I haven't noticed any difference in the awd performance in any mode, except track, and that is probably just the brakes trimming the line
    Keeping it pinned down while all cylinders are -6 is not good practice

    Money comes and goes, RS don't.
    Dude your life is also ticking away.
    Buy th damn car and mod away.

    The ST is an ST that's all it will ever be.

    I like driving in Drift Mode! The suspension feels softer when I am driving over bumps, could just be me though. I also like to kick the rear end out from time to time.

    I normally default to sport, but do like to do normal driving in drift mode now and again. I'd like to think I am actually feeling a difference in the power being biassed to the rear, but maybe it is my immaginmation. On anything other than dry roads it is very apparent...

    In drift mode, the suspension is the same as being in normal mode:

    for those getting drive mode not available, I have found that simply letting the car run for a bit will free it up and if you restart the vehicle everything will work fine.... and before I get slammed it is -19F here right now.
