Sport Mode

What does sport mode do in the '13 GT and how do you turn it on/off. Thank you in advance.

There are multiple modes for tranction control, on, off (push to turn off) note this really isnt totally off. Then there is sport mode which is put in the brake and tap it twice. Last but not least is turning everything off. Hold in the brake and hold in the traction control of 5-10 seconds.

You turn it on through your speedo apps it just gives more of a sporty feel to the steering you feel more of the road and the steering is firmer/harder. If you can't figure out how to turn it on look at the owners manual it not only tells you how to enable it but what each mode does

Are you talking about traction control and advance trac or sport mode in the steering options under the track apps or instrument cluster

I always leave my sport mode on if your talking about the steering setting. And if your talking about traction control I always disable or turn on advancedtrac by stopping depressing brake and press the trac control button twice

the track apps has a Christmas tree you can see you time from 1/8 and 1/4 mile. You have braking performance is everything you would use at the track hence track use only. To turn the sport mode steering on go to your settings in the instrument cluster or read the owners manual.

As for traction I drive with mine off all the time cause it sucks when you pull from a red light and forget to turn it off. Traction control is just to keep you from going into a spin. The computer sees te tires slipping and retards the timing until the computer see the tires are no longer spinning it don't hurt to use it or not to use it it's just a preference

All the correct info is in the owners manual. For highway road trips just get in, start it and go. No reason for sport mode or turning traction control off while cruising down the highway.

Don't bother printing it out. Keep it as a PDF. That way you can search through it (CTRL + F is your friend).

If it is dry out, I will put her in sport mode (doubletap the TC button with brake depressed).
If it is wet, I let it be.
If I'm horsing around, I turn it all off (hold brake, hold TC button for 6 seconds).

For most of my driving, I use the double-tap sport mode. I feel like the nannies are invasive when I'm accelerating on on-ramps or otherwise stretching her legs a bit.

When I'm competing, I usually leave her in sport mode. I'm sure I could manage a better launch with it completely off but I like having it help a bit in the curves...this might change once I get these suspension parts and some better tires installed, however.

What is the difference in the transmission when the auto is in "S" mode? By that I mean what functionally does it change or do?
