I'm running the regular tune,but I thought it would still feel a little different. The main issue was I could feel the mds coming on. When I used the predator on my Charger I could feel the firmer shifts immediately and the mds was gone. I was thinking that disabling traction control would make it pull harder on launch,but it was the same as stock. Maybe I'll try again and give it more time.

I'm thinking you have an issue, I am running mine on the Regular tune, and the difference was immediate and very noticeable, picked up 1.9 sec faster 0-60 and dropped a full 2 seconds off my 1/4mi time

DWWHemiguy, where are you at in Georgia? There is a couple guys on here around the Augusta area that might can help you with your tuner. You might be missing something. I have yet to lay hands on a tuner so I can't help.. You are just about the only person I have heard of having this much trouble with the BD. I hope you get it straightened out.

Not dogging bd, but not saying best canned neither cause there is very little evidence of bd being the best.

if anyone is reading this and wanting a tuner and you have extra cash to float i say buy both, compare and return the one least favored (not sure of diablos satisfaction guarantee so look into that before you drop $1,000 on 2 tuners). I didnt want to spend $600 on the trinity and didnt like the dated, cheap cheesy screen on diablos cheaper model which i saw on youtube
THIS x ELEVENTYBILLION!!!

I live near Hampton,Ga. about 30 mi. south of Atlanta. I'm about 3 mi. from Atlanta Motorspeedway. My plan is to try it again when I get a chance. I have plenty of time before the 30 days are up. Hopefully driving it around more will make a difference.

Just to update today I drove to work and back with the BD tune. I put about 40 miles on it. Gotta say it seems much better now. The mds doesn't seem to be coming on and the shifting is getting firmer. Also it doesn't feel like it is searching for the correct gear when cruising around 35 to 45 mph.The power doesn't feel much more, but there is a little better throttle response. I'm glad I gave it a little more time.

Seriously it took me a few days for it to kick in, and tell you, when all the conditions are perfect, cold morning air, 91+ tune, 94 Octane gas, wow, its nice, but even if I run the standard tune, just the shifting difference has made my truck so great to drive. Drive it like that for a few weeks then put it back to stock let us know what you think

Yes! This is 100% correct. Trust me, when you put it back to stock you will notice the difference immediately and hate it! I drove my truck to work after returning it to stock one day so I could update my tuner and it was terrible. The shift points suck and I could definitely notice the loss of power and torque. I ended up re-installing my tuner at work before I left just because I didn't want to drive home with it stock again.

I just got of the phone with Travis @ Bullydog and they wouldn't give me the B011 update. He said they are working on releasing a new update Wednesday or Thursday of this week. It will reportedly address all the existing bugs in the B011 build (and previous).

I have 3.1.4.2 A011, and it's fairly disappointing. MDS & Traction Control won't disable. Trans Temp gauge reads 6 degrees. There is a problem with tire size adjustment. Etc..Hopefully, they will rectify all of these issues in the next release.

I called and spoke with Travis today because I also have version 3.1.4.2 A011. He said if my truck wasn't having these issues then I probably didn't need it. I asked him why and he explained that it works with some vehicles and some it doesn't. He also suggested that I do the update anyway. Do you guys think I should? Thanks.
