sct options

got my sct from vivian yesterday!!! it rocks!!! but the shifting is a little different than im use to. i have a c1 axle ratio which is 3.73. and my tire size is 35 -12.5-17. do i need to do the old chalk at 6 oclock method for my tires, or change my shift firmness?? does the transy need to form to my tune or make my tune form to it? just wondering what options did you guys choose for your looney tune? i love the tune i just want my transy do the same!!!

you need to do the old chalk at the 6oclock method to find your tire revs per mile.
When you get that number... when you are loading the tune it will ask you if you want to adjust options. choose yes and change the tire revs per mile number to what you have gotten...


Also you need to drive 30-50 miles to let the tranny relearn the program. It should get better after that!

You might check with Vivian. The tunes she sent me she puts your tire size and axle ratio in the tune. She told me to not adjust anything it's already done.

Yeah I have her looney tune and it does run good. Now with Erics and Matts tunes I was told to adjust for my tire size and axle ratio. But when I got my tune from Vivian she told me not to adjust, just hook it up and load the tune.

592 revolutions per mile for a 35" tire? iirc? Go to the website of the company that makes your tires and look up the revo's per mile. Then round up or down as the adjustments are only in increments of 5. If I remember I have my 33's adjusted to 625 but on nittos website it is just under 625.
