      I spent a couple summers driving in MA many years ago, and what impressed me was how well traffic works
      when *everyone* seemed to be an aggressive driver. My observation was that lane changes...

      Wiki has a photo of the interior of a torpedo car, which is lined with fire brick.

      You've completely missed the point. We *all* want to know what power it makes right now, stock exhaust manifold,
      current exhaust and all. For all we know your mods could cause it to make less...

      I love the fact that a head-on collision right smack in the middle of the road, has no discernible effect on
      the overall flow of traffic. Seen it, been there, done that.. move along.

      Your understanding is correct. With the wire simply disconnected it should be always loud, w/ a code.
      The pull up to 12V through resistor is only there to clear the code.

      Don't know why it...

      I don't think you're overlooking anything (there's no settings "fix"), just fundamentally misunderstanding the
      intent of the mode. You don't save any wear and tear on the Haldex unit/drivetrain,...

      Again, if it changes constantly, then what's the point? What do you gain? Might as well
      just call it "Sport" or "Race" if it's going to behave like that the instant
      you hit the gas or turn the...

      If it were to instantly jump to a more aggressive mode every time you blip the throttle for
      a second, then how would it be any different than simply staying in the more aggressive
      mode all the...

      The SUV was sitting still, until the truck came along, and then launched
      hard straight into the semi. That is messed up.

      Agree about these two. And perhaps had the trucker not been chatting on the phone, he could have had
      a hand free to honk at her to make his point more forcefully.
