    So last weekend I went on a long tour. Drove from central California to the Bay Area and back, total of 500 miles in a day. Usually I drive in RACE mode, but since I was cruising on the highway and with my wife, I put the car in comfort zone , between snow and sport mode. I noticed that when slowly accelerating the car would get a burst of energy at 95MPH. The feeling was significant and only occurred when the car was in comfort mode. For all I know this might be normal, expert thoughts??

    isn't that rpm dependent, not speed?

    Of course... but what rpm is it hitting when he reaches 95 in a specific gear? That’s probably the reference point being used but I would be willing to bet that the specific speed has very little to do with the “issue”.

    Lolol!! Yup that’s what it felt like.. but seriously I was just cruising on the freeway and felt the jolt of speed. With my heavy foot the speed gradually increases if I’m not paying attention.
