Without ARP studs it a roll of the dice but if i were to get one it would be SCTX3 because it also tunes the trans.

Matt's SRL has a pretty good record on non studded trucks.

^^^ Yeah, what that guy said.

Just talk to some of the different tuners and give them the lowdown, let them guide you in the right direction. They sure don't want you bashing them on the boards if you have trouble, so they'll give you the right tune.

I guess I should put I have a sct sf3. I bought it used and it came with two idp tunes. Extreme street and extreme race. It also has 5 canned tunes. I'm not sure if these tunes are ok to run with out studs.

Well since you bought it used the IDP tunes are probably not for your strategy so I wouldnt recommend running them. Canned tunes are alright but custom tunes are much better.

Unless it matches your trucks strategy then those tunes are worthless to you. As I said just call some of the tuners and discuss your goals.
