Valet Mode impressions

I've got a 2015 SRT 392 and have owned it for about a year. I've never tried valet mode before now so I thought I'd give my thoughts for those that haven't tried it.

First off I have a 17 yr old son who just got his drivers license which has motivated me to try this as I remember what I drove like at 17 and that was only in a 85 Caravan.

First off it's very easy to set up. You just hit the SRT button and at the bottom hit the valet button. It will then ask you to enter a four digit code and hit ok. That's all it takes!

Once in valet mode it turns the car into a Honda Civic.

It locks out first gear in an A8 ( not sure about 6 speed).

It also does not allow you to use launch control.

Won't let you turn off Traction Control.

Won't allow you to enter the SRT pages to change suspension or transmission settings.

The engine also won't rev past 4000rpm.

I tried it out and my god it's like someone removed the big V8 and put a sewing machine in its place.

Can't spin the tires. Can't slide the back end out and probably wouldn't outrun a smart car. It's Perfect for a 17yr old new driver to take for the occasional spin.

Anyhow that's my little review. I'm very happy with its features and think Dodge is brilliant for this technology.

Can you adjust the max rpm the car will be able to rev to?

As far as I can tell no it can't be adjusted.

Nice write up, valet is nice when you let others drive your car until they get used to the power and just for cruising around when you want to take it easy. The first gear lockout is A8 only, the M6 can still use all 6 gears but the reduced engine output and 4,000 rpm limit remain and is not adjustable on either.

Damn, what's a teenage boy to do? No burnout's for the friends, no high speed running from the law, might as well not drive the old-mans car at all.

I told him to just park it outside his high school...and collect the girls phone numbers.

This is why they have measures like that:
Driver of BMW in fatal crash sought Web advice on making it go faster | Ocala.com
Airstrip Crash- Florida- 5 killed - BMW M5 Forum and M6 Forums
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=titO5Amm9gM

Some 18 year old was playing with his dad's M5 and went onto the forums to find out how to access all of the "go fast" programming. Several days later he had 4 friends in the car the night they graduated high school and he totaled it, killing them all.

I love American muscle cars like a thrice-divorced 45-year old tax attorney loves barely legal coeds. That is to say; passionately, inappropriately and almost certainly inadequately while muttering whispered apologies to the beautiful thing I am probably ruining forever.

To those who call me crazy: the distance between genius and insanity is measured only by success.

I remember that M5 runway crash, John Travolta had a house and kept his 707 there. Very sad.
