Default superchips Torque Mngment Tuning

Anyone come up with some good starting points for using the new superchips program for torqu management?

The post "this will make you do a burnout" - kind of faded out and didnt get any numbers.

i went in and played with mine, removed all torque management and tweaked the shift points and max rpm's. Truck accelerates very nicely now, seems like a more solid acceleration, havent been able to do the burn out, but then again i have 37x13.5x18 tires so maybe thats just not gonna happen for me unless its raining!

But since i am no pro when it comes to the numbers, still wanting to hear from others about how they programmed thiers?

thanks

I have all mine set at 8% across the board, I had read that zero you can actually loose performance.

really? why would you lose power with 0% torque management? I figured that with 0 management that it would just run like it would without the restrictions of a torque management program? Im new to this kind of programming so if you got info, by all means let me here it!

thanks!

During our many months of testing we found that a little bit of TM is more responsive than no TM. Think about it in the sense of friction, if you are to apply torque to the trans, the higher the friction. If you reduce it a little the lower the friction, and this is an non-linear reduction. Too much torque and the truck will lag it's shift. Personally I would leave some TM in all of the shifts. The shifts will complete quicker with some load reduction.
