RCD Tunes... discuss

Always been curious about Josh's tunes, before people start playing games and bashing River City Diesel, I would like to get a solid discussion going about their tunes.

From what I've read they don't seem half bad, and from those who run them say they actually like them...

FYI I wont be running them over my TSD and Quick Tricks tunes, thats not even a question. Ill be adding Eric's and Matts to my list of tunes before these anyways.

Have at it people and keep it clean.

never been a big fan of their tunes. They were the worst out of the three i had.

it was smokey, it had erratic shifting and even after having them adjust the tune twice, the throttle was too touchey (would snap your neck back if you touched the throttle).

I have a few others issues as well but dont remember them. lol.

I remember a post from somebody that had their non VGT setup and RCD was never able to tune it so it didn't surge. He ended up pulling it off and going back to a VGT.

Why would you run a 62 non vgt over a Powermax?

Hmm thats interesting maybe it just was RCD that couldn't get it to not surge?

I've been doing some research and I change my mind daily of what I want to do. I'll more than likely be going with innovative's 155cc's and a powermax mostly for cost effectiveness bang for your buck.
