It was nice to put the truck in drive and go down the track without shifting.

Beta units are shipping as fast as I can source the 8-pin transmission connectors. They are currently backorder from Germany and I don't have quite enough to fulfill the current orders.

Here is the list of known issues from the beta testers:

1. Trans temp compensation on very cold mornings (<32F) doesn't bring up pressure fast enough to shift from 1-2 unless you warm the transmission up. The work around is to either warm the transmission up for a few minutes (1200rpm in drive with the vehicle brakes) or drive a block above 25mph, slow to 15mph and then it will shift the second time it tries.

2. Loading and switching between tunes is currently disabled due to a former issue with tune loading. I think I have it worked out, but I didn't want to enable it without getting street miles in my daily driver to make sure it won't leave someone stranded in limp mode.

3. I discovered this morning the overdrive lockout switch works wonderfully, but causes a limp mode condition when you come to a stop. I found the issue and will test it tonight.

On the RH transmission. What/how are you picking up the mph from? Are you using the factory sender? If so how do you work that in as I am not running a computer of any type.

All controller versions use the factory VSS in the overdrive section. The harness I build powers the VSS and nothing else is needed.

The overdrive issue is fixed in the latest build. It also has new code so a missing wired remote doesn't cause a limp-mode condition.

You talking about these? If so you can buy them from Electrical Advantage or I have a few in the drawer I can get to you.

Will it have a port to hook up either the factory or aftermarket speedo?

Firepunk had a few connectors in stock that I'm getting tonight to complete the other 4 beta units. The company that makes them had this to say:

"This product is no longer available from ITT Cannon. ITT has informed us that the tool made to use this connector has broken and they are not going to fix it due to low demand.
Phil"

Rob, I may take you up on those if Jeremy can't supply more. The funny thing is they'll let me buy the 1000's of pins for the connector, but not the plastic part.

Unfortunately, no integrated speedo signal on this release. It would be a good thing for the future, once everything promised in the current version works as designed.

And just out of curiosity, . What kind of power will this be pulling and if power is disrupted will it have to re-learn. Or for that matter will it have to learn at all?

You could sell it as a splice into your plug kit...

You assume the liability that the connector is sound by doing that. Then you deal with product issues due to something beyond your control

It's not a learning system. It's pretty bulletproof from the software side. It will go into recovery mode if you accidentally remove power when it's flashing. The flash takes ~2.3 seconds so it would be pretty hard to trick it.

What about power draw?
I ask because I shut my alternator off and run off battery power while going down the track.

I would guess the drivers for the solenoids are the biggest power draws, and they probably aren't going to draw anything except what stock would anyways.

Correct. 0.3A for the controller at full load; solenoids draw like stock power levels; total system load is easily served by a 10A fuse.
