Super Chips Programmer Installed

Got the Super Chip programmer today. I like it! Easy to use and I felt a seat of the pants difference. Even with 5:13's mines been a dog over the last couple of days since putting on the 37's. Ofcourse Im driving a brick in 30 mph winds.

I set it on the 89 octane setting and found no detonation or pinging. You hit the throttle and it goes. It also appears to have gotten rid of the lag that happens when you push the gas. I'll have to play with it some more but there are fan settings, performance settings, transfer case settings for front and rear, tire and gear settings and I think Im leaving a couple out. Plus unlike the competition it comes with a USB so you can download updates.

I actually went to the R&D location and picked it up. They came out and programmed it for me and walked me thru it. I like their customer service.

We're giving a couple of these away at Jeep Beach so hopefully a couple of you will walk away with one.

Id pay for it just to get rid of drive by wire lag. I ****ing hate that thing when Im on dunes. Doesnt bother me at slow crawl speeds. But that lag gets hairy when you're needing that power in a hurry.

Yeah and I hear ya on this wind lately. 30mph steady winds 24/7 is a ***** at highway speed.

Have had mine for a couple weeks now and loving it - realized 1 additional mpg even with my lead foot Agree with Jeff - throttle response is better.

Trust me its worth it. The problem with me is like at River Rock. When your trying to crawl over rocks and need a little gas its either none or all. Now that the lag is gone its instant peddle. Its does a lot more though. There are all kinds of settings that you can play with. I want to get into the t-case settings and see what they do. I loved it on the highway today. Even driving against the wind you could give it gas and get instant response. This will go into my best mods file. Its a pretty cool tool.

MILGRE - You might want to take yours back to S/C and get an adjustment since I smoked your a$$ at the track the other day. lol. 2 Jeeps drag racing...that was funny.

Do remember ya used to race - but I think you're a little rusty....if there'd been a tree - it woulda been red on your side!

Sadly, Bill - we won't be able to do that at Jeep Beach - least not in the infield.

bring the smack to ORLANDO SPEEDWORLD!

Here is an idea....


bring your jeeps to Orlando Speedworld and run the 1/4!

It's about 6 miles east of JeepersDen.

I go there atleast once a month. In fact, I was there last Friday night. There was a 18 second cougar, so we won't feel that bad. Just make sure you don't go in lanes 1 & 2. Those are for the cars that go under 11 seconds. 3, 4, 5, and 6 are for the other cars.

If you guys wanna go, i'll race ya or anybody for that matter. I know I can get a better reaction than Jeff...

LOL, you guys are funny

Grant you should ask your friend at S/C if he has an updated stat sheet. I'd like to see the difference between the 87/91/93 Octane settings. Also they need better descriptions. Like for the transfer case. Theres no description of what changing the settings will do for them and several other items.

Now that could be fun - I would just have to figure out how to disable that feature in my jeep that emits a high-piercing scream or the words "NO, NO, NO" at an alarming decibel whenever something exciting/scary is about to happen! LOL
