Do you know if you will be able to get the shifting perfect on a high HP program and then switch to a program that shifts right when you go back to a lower (50-70HP) program, for daily driving, without learning. You know how it is when you play on the higher settings and then tune it back down and it shifts pretty harsh........

I do not know what this program is capable of, but I will find out because we need something like this. When I talked to Wade today I only asked if it was available and he said yes. I told him to ship it. I do not know how many users of this program there are, but everyone knows I do not have any special pull with anyone. I am looking forward to playing with this and totaly screwing up Trippins Duramax. ):h It must have something to do with beating up a blue Duramax that has kicked my a$$ at the track.

Right now untill all the bugs are worked out we are not making a habit of selling them to the public. Right now you can still shift the truck into reverse at highway speeds and you'll have some of your dash lights come on and stay on, and that's just a few of the quirks that need to be taken care of. So untill the product is refined enough to offer it to the public and is end user friendly to some extent then I would leave the testing to the guys that can replace stuff in the tranny's if they break it!!!

You'll be able to do some pretty cool stuff with these controllers when they are refined, we are even working on doing a trans brake for the Allison sometime within the next year with this new technology.

So for now guys I would leave the guinea pig stuff to Mike and Guy.

Cheers,
Wade

:lol: Bet he does. Could be good for us though if he tries that(as long as he lives:eek: ) If you guys dont have that bug fixed by the time guy does his testing I'm betting he will whittle himself a new billet case over his lunch brake:cool: (considering he lives through the ordeal :eek: ) I think Guy likes to try and break stuff so he can have an excuse to build it stronger :lol:

Its an Allison. Even if you threw it into reverse at 70 mph, it would still be fine. :)
