Spartan 310 F450 at the track
Got a chance today to make some passes with our F450 today and the 310 spartan tune,TCM that are due to release on the 7th. Let me start by saying "this truck is heavy". A quick run down on the truck is a Job1 truck with 4.88 gears,6" lift and a 35.5" tall 19.5 tire(they su** because they don't bite the track at all). The truck runs over the scale at 9750lbs with driver.
We made a bunch of passes and ended up with pretty good run taking into account the shear weight we were trying to move. Mileage even seems to improved on this trip to the track another .4 MPG, Matt just keeps finding little things to improve.
1/4 13.917 @ 94.74 MPH
As a side note I got back and got a call to let me know I had another revision 310 to try after we got back. Revisions to shifting and fuel again, very quick learning and spot on shifting. Word is this is the final calibration for the Sept. 7th release. Mileage is suppose to improve again, but I didn't get too many miles on this one yet. Matt was only concerned with adaptive learning for the tranny and WOT shifts on this one. With this new transmission tuning this TCM is going to be a great upgrade for ALL Job trucks, not just something for the Job 1 trucks. It will be a long weekend for Matt.
