Spartan

I just put my brand new spartan in the truck. I had the mini maxx before. But everything is perfect except the hard *** shifting. The mini maxx was not this hard at all! What is there to do to tone the hard shifting down?

You do not have that option with Spartan, at least not now, maybe whenever the next update comes along.

No tire size calibration. The shifting will smooth out to an extent when you put a few miles on it. Do the relearn process also, it's outlined on Spartan's web page and will help it smooth out more quickly.

They claim the trans tuning helps to not slip the trans, especially with the bigger tunes. The 210 is a good power boost with near-stock shifting. Give it a try.
