spartan Race Tunes and Reverse issues

I was wondering if anyone has heard of Reverse Issues with the spartan race tunes. I was on their site digging around and a couple of guys said they were having problems with reverse.

I am not trying to cause problems or start anything. I am just trying to get educated on the system and figure out if I want to purchase one.

I want to purchase the 275 race tune and the Dash Daq but I also tow a small 18 ft bass boat 3-4 times a week. I would need my reverse to work every time

Just wondering Thanks again if you have any info

I did have this issue with the 275v3 and it is indeed frustrating...couldn't use it at all in the hills or with a trailer. It seems to have been limited to only a few trucks. I am currently running the 275v4 and haven't noticed it with the new revision. I will be hooking up my trailer tonight so I will give it the true test. It never happened at all with the 210.

A few of us had it with the 275 v3 tune. I quit running that tune after that since I had the 275 v2. A few people like Jrod did not and had to run a lower tune or just deal with it. I havent seen the issue with the 310 tune though, and I am still waiting on my 275 v4 tune to see how it reacts with my truck. I think it was only a select few guys though

Its definitely possible. Load one of the smaller tunes like the 210 and see if the reverse issue is still there.
