GT350 Drive Mode Test

On my way to Thunderhill last week I had my son with me and we tested the three drive modes on a stretch of I-5 known as the causeway. This section is notorious for having "waves" in it that make any car bounce up and down. First up was Normal mode and the bouncing was obvious. Next I switched to Sport mode which increased the bouncing significantly. Last up is Track mode which had our heads bouncing off the headliner. :p Anyone else given the three modes a good test on the street?

BTW Track mode works really well on track.
 
That seems like a great place to test the car.

Are these drive modes similar to those of the Boss, i.e.: steering feel and traction control? Or do the GT350 modes Change suspension compression/rebound?
 
It definently rides like luxery car in normal mode, just a little tire noise which makes it a good Hwy cruiser. The other modes for me are track/Autox only. I think ford did a really good job in making a dual purpose car.
