Multi-mode ma­chine

NZ Autocar - - New Arrival -

There are four drive modes; Nor­mal, Sport, Track and Drift and th­ese af­fect six set­tings; the AWD sys­tem, en­gine re­sponse, the two-stage dampers, steer­ing weight, sta­bil­ity con­trol and the ex­haust valve. Sport changes en­gine, steer­ing and sound, leav­ing Track to firm the dampers, and re­duce the ESC thresh­old. Drift is the new ‘Ken Block’ mode. It’s an ESC set­ting with a very wide slip an­gle but it also tells the AWD sys­tem to send most of the drive rear­wards and switches the damp­ing back to nor­mal which helps the back end break loose more eas­ily. The steer­ing also re­verts to Nor­mal, the lesser weight­ing help­ing to catch the slide.
