This lady gets my vote for Mom of the year.
Agreed.

Also think this is the first actual confirmation that the GOAT modes adjust steering.
(Which is great, but also exacerbates the lack of Sport mode in the BL/FE. I greatly prefer sport-style steering when I drive.)

I REALLY hope there is a way to switch out one of the GOAT modes via a computer update later on. I’m sure many of us would prefer Sport over Eco.

In my Lincoln, I can't enable the "Sport" suspension handling without also enabling "Sport" steering. Since it's all just fake electric steering, there's no additional feedback or control or speed, it's just heavier. It's the single reason I don't run in Sport mode all the time - the steering is too damn heavy for no reason. If I could have "Sport" throttle response and suspension with "Comfort" steering, that'd be perfect.

I understand that folks wanna see what the lower trims do... but they seem to have only built a few to take to these events. With that said, I’d only build the ones that had all of the options as well... so you can display all options to all participants.

I'd rather a sport mode and an eco mode. I'm either going or sipping. Normal is meh.

I suppose I'm spoiled with my wife's GLC.
It defaults to Comfort mode but also has Sport and a couple others. For most of our drives, I prefer the Comfort shifting as it uses less fuel and is less prone to complaints of "you're going to fast" but I really prefer the Sport steering.

Fortunately, it has an Individual mode where you can mix and match the different settings, so I get the Sport steering and Comfort shifting.

Yeah, I know the Mustangs can mix and match all settings within their modes. I can choose Comfort, Normal, or Sport for "Handling in D," "Handling in S," "Throttle in D," "Throttle in S." So I have Handling and Throttle in D set to Comfort and Handling and Throttle to S in sport. Then I hit the sport button if I want to really bust away from a stoplight or take a cloverleaf good and fast.

As if being born a millennial wasn't bad enough... my parents decided to name me "Brad". Pretty much as douchey as they come! I will say though... I NEVER hold the phone vertically when recording video. Only psychos do that
Fellow millennial Brad here. Thad and Chad are way worse.

Another loaded BL .... how about some videos of the BB or the OBX in off road action .... or even better. how about a BD in action .... they keep showing the expensive, loaded and most capable trims.
Come on guys, show us how capable the lower tiers are for a change !!
The few KOH videos I've watched they haven't engaged the front locker or used the the sway bar disconnect. So it's a Black Diamond with bigger tires. :cool:

even so, they said they reduced the tire pressure during that whole event to 28 PSI to make the occupants more comfortable!!

I really wanna see what the lower trims on their normal size tires can do .....
