I used the stock Diablo tune they gave me when I bought it. It says in the install instructions that you have to lift off the gas for it to shift in drive. I didn't read that until I went out the first time. I romped on it in drive assuming that for $5,000 I wouldn't have to drive it half ass. Ever since that, it had a delay between 1-2 in manual or auto. I just assumed it was normal conditions with the supercharger. When MGH tore my trans apart apparently 2C (I believe that is what he said) was destroyed.

Yeah lift to shift is exactly what it sounds like. If you are driving it with ful throttle in D you have to let off the throttle a split second, just enough for it to dump boost. Otherwise it kinda bounces off the revlimiter and feels like it's in neutral. RIPP said something along the lines of, it needs to see vacuum to shift. Everyone I have spoken to looks at me funny when I told them about lift to shift because the guys running Magnachargers aren't having that issue. CHVYKLR has his turbo setup done by MGH and even before his trans build, had no issue with lifting to shift. It's most definitaly something RIPP needs to figure out.

Also, when towing with lift to shift. When I would tow my Jeep in manual mode or auto with OD off, if I didn't downshift before going up steep grades it would do the same crap. Which is a major inconvenience. From what I understand RIPP is now running an ATS trans but they are using the ATS CoPilot to control it.
