Question about Spartan 210 Standard tune?

I have a Job 1 truck. The power and economy out of the 250 tune is amazing. The shifting, however, is not in my truck. It feels as though somebody is kicking me in the back at lower speeds.

The 210 Tow tune shifts so hard it almost makes me pee my pants a little.

The standard 210 shifts like a dream and pulls excellent!

My question is, is the standard 210 hard on the tranny? Will it reduce the life expectancy of the tranny because it shifts so nice?

Thanks

The 210 tune is a great tune, especially for towing and daily driving. You will be fine driving with it.

The tranny will survive quite awhile with proper servicing and driving habits with the 275 and under tunes. The 310 tune will shorten the life of the torque converter rapidly unless the truck is babied all the time. All of the Spartan tunes are designed to keep your tranny as safe as possible.

so with good services and conservative driving is it realistic to think that a transmission that has been running the 210 tune would last as long as a transmission in a truck that has been left stock?
