Question for the Auto transmission tuners

Where do you have your idle set at?

Do you like for the idle to be high where the car is always pulling in drive? have to keep your foot on the brake or the car will creep away on its own.
Or is your idle set low where it will not pull?

I tend to think that if its not always pulling it will be better on the transmission?

Your tuner can set the idle anywhere you want , to high of idle wont hurt the trans at all but wares more on the brakes lol

Seems to me that pressure could be reduced at the idle load/rpm so the brakes weren't an issue ...

The only settings that I can do myself on this tuner is

WOT Shift 1-2 -3MPH/7mph

Shift pressure 1-2, -25% up to 25%

Im not sure but my thought on this is that it means when shifting from First to second i can extend the MPH that it shifts from 1-2 and the firmness from first to second.

I dont see how I can control anything other then the idle?

Idle speed drv i can adjust
Idle speed Neu i can adjust

maybe i missing something?

You can't.

Same thing I've said in the past and also what Tom has told you.
You keep trying to change things you can't and creating problems from the things you can change. Basically you have no idea what you're doing and shouldn't be doing it.

IIRC Tom sold you the tune and offered to update anything you wanted. You apparently never got back to him so he could. It's a free service so I've no clue why.



But if you want to do things yourself (which I don't feel you're ready for), man up and spend the $400 for Advantage III. --> http://www.summitracing.com/parts/scl-4332

Well thanks for sugesting something i have no control over.

I know you have the advanced program and you like to sugest things that most of us cant even change wich just makes most of us even more confused.

Maybe thats your intent around here?
