It's totally useless on the track, but if you get a kick out of using it around town then great. Just not for me.
Track or strip? I've found it very useful on the track.

Put your shifter in "M". If you don't touch the tap-shifters and start moving, there should be a "S" to the left of your digital odometer.

Maybe once I'm all outta warranty and what-not I'll go this route if I still have it. A possibility will be to slap a Maggie on it too...then hafta tune. LoL! Just saw David's (Marine1991) LS3 conversion, I think he's up over 460RWHP now. I bet that's nice in M-mode.

I like the front-end conversion you got. Did you do the LS3 conversion, or headers/tune/etc? I wanna see how the new SMOG program is too before I mess with headers.

Thanks. No LS3, just full exhaust/intake/tune. Put down 411 on Mustang dyno, ran 13.1 in the 1/4. Granted, I'm a crappy driver, lol. Launch needs a lot of work, kills my 60' every time.

Dumb question alert:

I know 'D' and 'M' modes.....Thought 'M' mode is called Sports mode.

Do V8 models have 3 modes?

Again it is sport mode until you use the paddles the first time after shifting to M, then it will be in manual mode.
All automatics have that ability except the 2LS.

Shifter in "M" position puts car in "S" mode, as indicated in the DIC. Tap a shifter to activate "M" mode from "S" mode.

Both (especially the road track)... turning the wheel back and forth and hitting buttons that swap sides is pretty tough.

Unless, of course, you have one of those cool shifters.

<<<This guy happens to have some cool shifters.

Proper racing posture (9 and 3) will also help keep track of your paddles.

After 25+ years driving a stick shift in DC area's infamous traffic, I LOVE the 6 spd automatic. No clutch, it's the best of both worlds. I use Manual mode all the time!
