    Never heard of it...maybe they are talking about the f45 suspension.

    In the touring mode it does ride like a buick.

    I've got the F45 and like it, but I've never heard it called the soft ride option. With the F45 you can have it on tour, when you just cruisin, then switch it to sport or competition when feelin froggy. I enjoy the smoother ride most the time even in tour it'll handle better than most any other car.

    I had it, but upgraded the shocks, the springs and lowered it and the car handles alot better.

    I always thought that the soft ride was the "fe1" or base suspension which was what my old vette had. I thought it was a nice handling car.
