Side note: On the street I find that if you just leave it in D and floor it from a start you will once in a while catch an early 3-4 shift what will zap your power. This can also happen in Tip mode when you rev 2nd out hard and shift into 3rd it will shift to 4th early by itself. It's only sometimes but it can kill a good run.

For this reason I wish it was possible to disable the kickdown while you are in tip mode. You can shift yourself, or the tip will shift to avoid redline (or stall) anyway, so it isn't really neccesary. It's fine in normal auto, but it's a pain to loose boost completely when you are in the twisties, or trying to pass someone. This is why I voted interest for the the tip chip in the other thread.
