How about a Valet mode KEYFOB?

So I took my Hellcat to the dealer for service. I enabled valet mode and gave them the black key. When I get the car back they told me they did the uconnect recall on it (which I already did) and of course this reset the dang valet mode. I know they drove my car because I had a defective paddle shifter replaced. Thank God I didn't give them the red key! Anyway, that's still a lot of power for the black key. Who else thinks Dodge should actually give you a Valet mode Keyfob? Software valet mode can get reset too easily.

I don't understand why the valet mode allows as much power as it does. I think 75~100 HP is enough to park a car.
But to answer your question, I'd rather not have another fob around - but that's just me.

a real valet mode should limit RPMs to 2,300.
