Cool idea. Even better though, would be a mode on the car you could set for other drivers/dealerships where you could set max speed and rpm. I typically do not let other people drive my car unless I'm inside but, when I had my exhaust installed the mechanics did. I pulled up to the shop just after they went for a joyride. not happy
More noise doesn't equal more power. So what are the choices with this mode? Come to a complete stop, shutdown and restart with the Super-Duper key? An SRT8 will be long gone by then... I'll bet Ford actually charges more for that key than the standard one.
Gimmicks. Someone remove this profanity from my sight! Just kidding. To each his own.
Yup, I agree..sounds like music. If it wasn't for one manufacturer making these cars/raising the bar, there would be no need for any competition from other manufaturers:bigthumb:
As for the whole key/tune thing, it is definitely an interesting concept. You can actually change your tune on demand with nothing other than a computer chip in a key. I'm wondering how many owners of these cars will drive it on the street in "standard" mode using the regular key.:scratchhead: I'm betting not many, if any. I know I wouldn't be.:browsmiley:
From your link: "The software alters more than 400 engine management parameters, says Ford, and adds a two-stage launch-control feature inspired by the one on the Cobra Jet racecar, noted Ford in a statement. By using a combination of steering-wheel buttons, drivers can toggle the tachometer needle to a desired launch rpm."

Horsepower/Torque increase is what now? Specifics would be nice. Is the rearend an IRS or solid axle? Sounds like a tricked version of my Bullitt which was a so-so performer as long as the road was smooth.
Hello everyone , i read all the threads of people asking what to get.
