Strange transmission shift today

So I was coming home from work today and decided to play a little. I normally run with my h&s set on no power, so I bumped it up to hot and hit the gas, at about 30mph. As soon as it tried to downshift, it acted like it didn't know what gear to shift to. Just kept jumping around hard. I got out of it quick, but it seemed to want to hang up in fourth with tq locked up. I set back to no power and it seemed to drive fine. I didn't try it again on hot setting, gotta get to work tomorrow ya know. Anyone else had anything similar happen?

I'm willing to bet you simply need to relearn the transmission.. it is rec'd you do it in the Hot setting.. it sounds to me like your adaptive transmission didn't know what the hell you were asking it to do..

Lol. I kinda figured something like that. It doesn't feel like any slippage, just like its lost.

Yea the Trans relearn can be a PITA sometimes especially when you change tunes constantly.
