Is the TRX offered with two different types of keys (similar to some AMG models) whereas one limits power and one is max 702 horses? Our 17 year old and hotel valets may find the gas pedal somewhat tempting! HAHAHAHAHA

I still feel they dropped the ball not having the red key/black key.

I agree. Way easier to just hand my kid/valet a detuned key instead of each time they take the vehicle I have to walk out to the truck and set it in valet mode. And by valet mode I mean like Smart car 100 hp mode. HAHA

I believe it stays in valet mode until you turn it off or a battery disconnect so you should already be in the truck before the handoff. In my opinion, two keys are impractical. I hate having to have one key in my pocket much less, two. How are we not using our mobile phones by now?

Soon I guess.

There’s your first mistake, handing I kid the keys, my response would be if you touch those keys/truck I’ll snap your Fn hand off lol

As a Valet in my distant youth, I could not agree more!

I made a video for anyone else who just wants to see how to use the feature.

pages 78 and 79 of the TRX Supplemental Manual that should come with each truck:

Also, be aware that numerous people have reported their trucks getting "stuck" in Valet mode after enabling it and leaving it that way for several hours - it does not recognize the PIN when you re-enter it to disable Valet mode - requiring the owners to disconnect the battery to reset it. Use with caution.

Even if it had a black key/red key option black only limits to 500HP. Valet is in the 300s, at least it is on the cars.

Kids these days are smart! Is anyone actually thinking there not capable of disconnecting the battery? I'm sure one of my kids is capable of thinking it threw but I'd trust him with the full 702 anyway. The valet guys would have to figure it out on the spur of the moment so I'm thinking I'd be good there.
