So the GT seats, what, about 4" higher or something than the Sedan? So the center-of-gravity is probably higher, so perhaps any horizontal damping would make a greater difference the further from the ground.

I know the throttle response in Sport mode helps to eliminate a lot of the turbo lag that I feel in Comfort mode, but I'm not sure if that's a result of DH, or if that would be the case with just the shifter moved left into Sport. I haven't played with it enough.
