2 Step makes my car freak out
 
So i installed the 2 step in my car with the sct x3. i set it to 3500rpm, go to test it out. it works but once i shift, the car freaks out. brings the revs down to 4000rpm jerks like crazy. then once the speed of the car gets to 4k rpm it lets me go past but is still jerky. tried a couple more times but took it off.
Any one know what i have to do to use this. Would help durring drag racing this summer.

a two step system will never be as fast as learning how to properly launch a vehicle imo.

its a cool feature, id like to try it out to see. and its consistant

from what ive seen it only helps if your tryign to show off. its not really anythign else a good amount of seat time with the car can accomplish.

Its still a feature on the device that id like to try out. even if its not effective in anyway.

Is the car a manual transmission?
If not, that's the problem.

If it is, make sure your clutch switch and cruise switch are not bypassed.
For the 2-step to work, the clutch must be fully released and both switches must be working.


But that's all assuming whomever programmed the X3 did the tune/options correctly. May want to contact them.


Oh and, remove the link from your signature line.

sorry but you are completely wrong.

its amazing how well two step and boost work together. With 2 step you can achieve full boost before launching.
