…when your 18 and have two jobs and your thinking about getting a third one just to save more money for when you're ready to mod your car again.

When you see a dirt lot an your blood pressure jumps (while going out for fast food).
When you hear the sound of a car running on 3 cylinders makes you look around for another one.
When other people tell you that your car IS running on 3 cylinders.

It only controls throttle response from my understanding. If you are driving and see a cop and press "I" nothing is going to change unless you change your foot is what I was getting at. Just seems stupid and pointless, to push a button when all you need to do is control your right foot.

When all you think about is how fun it would be to raise up your car 2 inches for a day to run a set of small bfg all terrains and really take your car through some mud.

I realize that.
Did you read my post?

"Meaning it's a lot easier to keep yourself from speeding"

aka slipping over the speed limit because despite the light touch on the throttle, sport or sport sharp will interpret that much differently than Intelligent.

It's not so much as reducing speed in this scenario. It's more so watching to make sure you AREN'T speeding.

Comprende?

I also prefer driving my car than being a passenger. The only time I don't like driving my car is when I'm super tired. Unfortunately, that happens most often when I'm sitting in traffic and it's already too late to ask someone else to drive...
