Question for 6.4 owners - can you feel MDS?

One of the biggest things I DON'T like in the new gen SRT8 is that they added MDS.

When I buy a performance car I vastly prefer instant throttle response instead of a few more highway MPG. I already get over 20 in my "old" SRT8. I don't need 24 IF that means there is a slight hesitation when I get on the gas.

Can you guys feel it?

I drove my brother's 2012 SRT and never noticed it.......but if it bothers you I would assume since tuning is available you can have it turned off..

I have not noticed it. Everytime the little green ECO pops up I smirk as I wiz by the Prius and Leaf drivers.

Not at all. If you punch the car cruising at 40 mph, you be at 80 mph in no time - no lag. So passing ANYONE on a highway is simply no challenge to the 2012 SRT8.

I feel it when it actually happens.

My car seems to be stubborn, however. The only time MDS engages is when I completely let off the gas, or if cruise control is engaged (legal speeds between 100 and 100 km/hr) and going down a decent decline.

I can barely get mine to even go into eco mode let alone feel it. If it weren't for the little green indicator, I wouldn't know it was even there...I can hear a difference in the tone of the exhaust...but I don't feel a thing...
