Thanks a lot dude.
The trans/engine rev matching is a feature in the 6l80e trans that allows the computer to blip the throttle during a downshift, whether the shift is initiated manually with TUTD or automatically by the PAL/PAS algorithms, and uses the CT downshift TM to work as intended.

I guess people who road race the car can tell you it's a nice thing to have, especially if the algorithm can anticipate the needed downshift when entering through a corner, but if it can't, and the computer is pretty good about it once PAL is engaged, you can always use manual mode and let the rev matching do its thing, it helps mostly not to upset the suspension during hard corners.

I don't do road racing, but i'd like to have it enabled when I do mountain driving, or just when i'm playing around with the car in manual mode, or when driving more aggressively, she'll have those big downshifts done by the trans automatically in sport mode for example.

It's a $14 universal cell mount I picked at Pepboys. it comes with a little plastic base that has 3M tape on one side, I slapped that one in the sunglass compartment or whatever that thing is called, and the other portion has a suction cup with a brace and the actual cell holder, works great since I can mount my Android, or Iphone or Ipod to it and take interesting shots

Then when i'm done, I simply unplug the suction cup and the whole thing fits in the glove compartment.

Not a Go Pro setup, but again, it's only $14.

Might have to get this mount for GONE event. Would it hold Ok when launching the car at the track?

Oh heck yeah, no problems holding down my ipod or Iphone 5, my Android is just a tad heavier than the ipod, but less heavier than the iphone, no issues with any of them.

This was taken with my Ipod

Awesome! I'm going to try and find that same mount. I want to put my flip video camera in it.

Blue: Can you turn this feature on an off in HPT. Had Rick C look at my tune and he removes TM in his trans tunes. Haven't quite figured out his tune yet because it is so different than the way you and I had done it years ago but I seem to have lost this feature with Rick's tune. I must say though is certainly shifts quicker with Rick's tune. Where do I find this feature in HPT, what does CT stand for, and is it adjustable?

CT stands for close throttle, and yes, it can be turned off or on. If you disabled the master TM switch, you'll loose the feature, it's in Trans Torque management / Torque reduction / CT Downshift. Lots of things have changed in my trans since the days we used to play with it , it's more simple now, and yet faster, and without the jerkiness. All my TM master switches are on (basically everything in that Torque reduction spot are all master switches), and i can still bark the 1-2 with ease, even with the DR's she wears daily..., TM can be your trans best friend when tuned, or its worst enemy like in stock trim
