Default Went and had some fun with the car last weekend...

Did an autocross event. Had a blast driving the car around the course.

Stock suspension (RS fixed) with stock Pirelli tires. I completely forgot that the car had a lap timer built in, next time I'll make use of it. As it was, i was running 1:37 on my first lap. My fastest lap was a 1:13. My only complaint was the transmission shifting in odd places instead of holding RPMs. I ran in Sport / Dynamic for all sessions just to get an idea of how the car behaves. Next time I'll make some runs in manual shift mode.

Press and hold the volume **** down on the center console until it shuts off.

That's what I have found as well when I'm doing my version of "auto-cross" of the very curvy roads here as well. Manual shift mode works much better and obviously shifts when YOU want it to; not when it wants. Thanks for sharing.

It's part of the Sport Displays section. I'll grab some pics later this weekend.
