Drive modes

Does anyone know what the differences are between Auto, Sport & Track? Mainly power to front & rear wheels.

I believe Auto is 40f/60r, Sport is 35f/65r, and Track is 30f/70r.

Current Stable:
'18 Billet Silver Trackhawk
'02 Lingenfelter Twin Turbo Z06
'11 Corvette ZR1
'14 Audi SQ5

Power distribution and trans shift programming.

Owners manual explains it in detail.

The torque splits remain the same as the SRT’s, at 35/65 percent front/rear in sport and 30/70 in track, though the tow mode now divvies it up 60/40 instead of 50/50.

Thanks, I looked at the owners manual extensively. I found the launch control and shifting, but nothing about the power distribution to the wheels. How do you launch your TH from a standing start?

There are a few threads that talk about launching the TH. Just search around. But for me, as I've posted here before, I've found that auto mode and no power braking works best for me. Just mash and go. I've tried all sorts of combinations. Actually the only thing I do is to punch the button to turn off traction control before a launch. I do get a little wheel spin but not much. With that my best is 3.0 to 60 and 11.2 in the 1/4 at 122.
