When it heavy rains, Sport o Snow?

Hi, I have noticed that when driving on rough roads with heavy rain (where puddles of water wells are formed) and goes to a speed of 80 to 100 km/h or higher, costs a lot to maintain the path of the truck in AUTO mode, which believe it is the best alternative to use? SPORT (for a firmer suspension and avoid drifts) or SNOW?
Someone noticed the same problematic?

Re: When it heavy rains, Sport o Snow?

in heavy rain with puddles...its all about the tires IMHO. I don't think any suspension mode would come into play. Sport would change the rear bias of the power applied to the rear 60/40. Auto is probably best.

I prefer to use snow mode when it rains.. Coz, the 50:50 torque split helps with the traction on wet surfaces.

Re: When it heavy rains, Sport o Snow?

Like Scott said, all about the tires in that situation, but I leave it in Auto unless it's dry and I'm having fun (sport/track). Snow means snow mode.. unless I feel like throwing it around, then track.. with traction button held down for five extra seconds (when you're in drive, but stopped at a stand still)... wait for the ding.. so it's truly off. (when it says off it is still on to a degree unless you hold it down for five seconds until you hear a ding and see it in the main display that it's now off.

Mine also said.. GO HAVE SOME F*CKING FUN NOW, EH!

Pretty sure this is a Canada option
