Sedate means slow, automatics are faster and more intelligent than the best driver, hence racing cars are not manual, but your right to each his own, the clutch in my disco 3 is such a heavy dog, I don’t want to risk another manual after 4 left knee ops because of a skiing accident, so all my new vehicles are auto,
I get not wanting to drive a manual with a bum knee. I wouldn't buy a car, truck, crossover SUV, etc. with a MT either - the Bronco is a special case of sorts for me. It's nice to have all these options to argue over though!

I know I’ve never been so excited about a car, even my mustang didn’t get me this hyped, the Bronco is just so perfect in most areas, and most cars are a compromise in most areas, I want a white roof Ford please

Cranking their steering wheels all the way to the right or the left will cause the same result when driving at highway speeds.

It would just fall under the Darwin Award category.
I was referring to electronically triggering the brake application, but sure.

So since this wont be available on the MT and its very unlikely we will be able to put a twin stick shifter on this thing, Im left with the question. Will this really be that much more helpful than just using rear wheelspin in 2wd and natural rotation while holding the brakes which are front biased. In anything soft or slick I do this all the time anyways to pivot around the front axle. I suppose if you have the room to pivot on one axle, you have the room to pivot on the other. You just have to do it a wheelbase length earlier.

Just trying to find a silver lining for us manual guys. Would be sweet if they gave manuals a just a individual wheel brake selector for use when lockers are NOT engaged.

Curious to see what happens with this on pavement.
It's not ment to be done on pavement. it will flat spot one tire while balding the other one cause them to be out of balance really quick.

True, but for some reason there is little to no footage of it in action, let alone to this degree of fun/rowdy effectiveness.

Obviously it's not intended for pavement. Burnouts aren't so great for the life of your tire either. Some things are done for the sake of fun.

Yeah, Its priced just below G-Class and I guess no one ever takes off road to press that button.

Europe is just starting to fall in love with automatic cars, because now they are faster, smoother, more intelligent and more fuel efficient! And you guys wanna go back to manuals! What the hell???
Its an anti-theft device for me. I live in a newly minted Progressive Democrat city that's experiencing massive spikes in crime. Having a manual means that few of the growing number of car thieves can drive it away.
