    Although this car isn't very competitive in GS, it's still a blast to annihilate cones. The car gets lots of complements and shocks many when they hear that loud BOV.
    The nanny system kicks in too often and I'm trying to figure out how to prevent it as it's hurting my times. Any ideas? Non PP '15 stock. Run in Sport with traction control off.
    Definitely needs a driver mod, but I'm getting better.

    And sadly, they wouldn't let me put any of that jet fuel in the tank :(

    Side note: the front corner of the battery opened up and sprayed acid on the intake piping. Dealer replaced it all free, possibly got a used battery, at least they didn't notice the orange cone stickers on the windscreen haha.

    I can add more videos if anyone cares to see them.

    This is the last event at Cordova Dragway, 3 runs, last run I park and you can see some of the competitors. I'm too embarrassed to show my first event. It was rough..

    I know on Volvo's from the era when Ford owned them you had to either hold down, or I think press the traction control/dynamic stability button multiple times in a row to get it completely off.

    Non-pp (performance pack) cars cannot be fully turned off. I've tried all kinds of ways with my MKS to no avail.

    OP - Looks like an awesome time!

    I've read that you can change the as built data with Forscan to make it have the he full off TC like the PP SHO.

    I was going to say, I would be a shame if someone hadn't done that with Forscan.

    On a sidenote, I am 100 percent willing to auto cross my land yacht. Sign me up.

    I ran our '13 SHO PP at the last Good Guys event in Scottsdale and did alright. Think I got in 11th out of 20+ cars. Car plows with all season tires on it.
