Nice! Does this mean we can get a special price on the Cortex?

Thanks!

Can anyone confirm the Superchips reduces TM in first from a dig? People tell of improved 1-2 & 2-3 shifts with tires chirping but still they have difficulty spinning em in 1st. If they'll spin with the higher shifts shouldn't they also easily spin from a dig if TM is similarly reduced there?

With the stock tires I could spin them from a dig. Apply the brake a little, and I could burn threw second. I now have Invos on the rear, and they stick much better.

Did you notice much of a difference in the tires spinning easier from a dig after the SC tune?

Yes, tip in response was much improved.

The power comes on sooner than with the stock tune.

I thought it was customary that new vendors sponsor a group buy? If so, I'm in!!!!


OK, maybe it's not customary but I am still in.

Exchanged PMs about the GXP cortex with Scott at SC and he said it's still in the queue, but no date yet.

No new news on the GXP tunes, maybe Scott can comment

On the CAI Tunes, everyone involved wants the new tunes to be the best they can. All input from the beta's are taken in and adjustments are being made, and then retested again.
