... but IMO nobody should have to adjust their driving...
Not trying to be a smarta$$, but don't you adjust your driving based on what you're driving. You wouldn't drive a 22 foot moving truck the way you drive a sports car and you wouldn't drive a sports car like you would drive some of the old boat Caddys or Buicks.
I use to have a 2016 2nd gen cruze. In that forum not a single issue with the starter for SS. A few battery issues. One was somehow it had the wrong battery installed. The other was from a bad cell. GM is going forward on newer models and installing the shut off for the SS.
My brother and I actually tried this a couple of times on his old corvair.
It works much better if you turn on the ignition first.
Indeed i remember forgetting to put the ignition on a few times and wondering why it is not working..especially when i was trying to impress somebody...
i found 2nd gear easier though as you need to declutch and clutch back quickly and in 1st you have to be flash gordon to achieve starting the engine without it sputtering off immediately.
