Yeah man when I 1st got the sct I put it on the highest and it shift really hard and in 3rd or 4th it would just red line till i let off and would then shift someone told me you have to "train your tranny" meaning put it on the setting you want and drive for a while till your tranny get used to the new settings worked for me now when i get on it shift fine.

Btw what custom tunes are you useing i know when i had the free spartan 6.0 one's it would make my truck shake really bad but would blow black smoke like crazy
