I'll concede the intersection situation. I've been in that situation, and the only thing that kept me safe from a drunk running through a red light was torque and AWD traction.
If you're stopped at a redlight light and someone is coming up behind you and not gonna be able to stop, getting out of the way is not the answer, as all it does is make a more dangerous situation for the car in front of you.
I have learned to live with it. you just have to anticipate a little earlier when pulling into traffic, and keep an eye in the rearview when at lights, intersections and such.
I was in miami last year and drove to key west..very crazy drivers down there. flew the second time..
in regards to driving with the Tow switch on, I wasn't sure if you could do that on a fulltime non towing basis. If anyone knows you can, le tme know; would love to try it out and check out the difference.
My mustang had the same issue when I got it. 465 hp and still a delay..with a 5 speed. The last tune I got for it I had them eliminate the delay. From this experiance it does make a bit of a difference.
