TW Chip - Very jumpy off line

I ordered a TW 6-POS Chip back on July 4th. I finally just got it in early October. (thanks Raul). Anyway, I finally had time to install it on Friday. Wow, very impressive. I mostly like it so far. However, it's extremely jumpy right off the line. (I don't like this) Today, it's raining and it was really hard to not break traction off the line. is this normal? Also, how do I know what setting is at each knob position? the chip came with absolutely no info.
thanks.

Mine came in the order that my order had them. Mine easily breaks tires loose on Street.

tps is a little touchy.

My economy tune is worthless in the rain. But my street tune is perfect.

Mine is pretty dang touchy in extreme and smoke tunes. I have gotten use to it. Tony has it now doing a reburn so we will see if it is any different.

Pickups are just way too light in the rear end, even my f150 breaks the tires loose in the rain. In the powerstroke it's just that much easier because of the powerband and torque, and the turbo. I like the TW tunes I have, ran all of them reall didn't mind economy when I drove from NC to CA last week. It did take a little while to get used to the "touch" it takes a lighter throttle imput than my other truck. Anyway back on point in the rain a RWD vehicle of any kind with a lot of power takes finess to maneuver around.

my 2000 had a TS 6-way. That TS was a major POS compared to this new TW 6-position I have in my 2002. Holy toledo! my 2002 gets up and goes after it! Every bit as fast if not faster than my '06 Dodge with the Edge. I am afraid I am going to tear the tranny out of it and I've been VERY gentle on the throttle. going to hit the tranny shop next week to see what he can do to beef it up before I toast it. So far, I highly recommend the TW tunes. Going to tow with it this weekend. that will be the real test. giddy up.

I ordered mine and kept the order form where I requested each position to be. Got mine from Stealth.

Street Race and smoke are very jumpy (read, not drivable) Daily is junk too. It is flat off the bottom with a sort of delay on peddle response, making it jumpy and not much fun to drive. I also hate the shifting of my daily when driven at low speeds around town.

I have found heavy tow or extreme to be my daily tunes of choice. If I sent it for a reburn I would not get street race or daily. I would however keep smoke.
