Default What mode for showing off?

If I am giving rides, what mode would be best to feel a lot of torque?

Thanks

Track with traction control of if you're a good driver. Other wise Sport mode.

Tour or sport.. Sounds like you don't really know what you're doing. The car has the same amount of power in every mode.

The amount of power doesnít change in these different modes. It sounds like you may have the wrong car. Showing off is typically reserved for Mustang drivers. They even have a collection of videos on the Internet showing them lose control of their cars and almost killing innocent bystanders.

Thanks

Any of them. (other than weather or PTM wet)

Leave the nannies on. No passenger likes to crash.

Funny thing. The least impressive thing about going for a ride in a fast car is the driver launching the car with the tires spinning. Most cars on the road can do that easily so really doesn't show what a car can do.

What gets a rider is to head into a 120 degree turn at close to 150 mph, hit the brakes hard at about 350 ft away from where you plan to turn the steering wheel and start releasing the brake as you turn the wheel and as the car rotates toward the apex carry less brake (down to 50 to 55 mph) until you can start to apply throttle passing the apex and then gradually take the throttle wide open as the steering starts to unwind. As you exit the turn you should be back close to 100 mph.

That impresses people as they literally think they are going to die as the car heads toward woods/grass at a high rate of speed, then are thrown forward in their belts by deceleration forces that are much higher than the engine can generate to accelerate the car, followed by the car car going around the corner at 1.25 Gs and accelerating out of the corner to another high speed entry into a tight corner.

Use track mode, turn traction control off, stability control off, and make sure someone gets video for YouTube.
