Re: Tranny issues!����

Dear RIPP,
Totally understand the trans is adaptive, but here is the thing...If the tune is correct, there is very little adaptation the trans has to do. There is no reset and drive around like a granny on a brand new stock vehicle. You can drive it off the lot and it goes great. The same is true of a good S/C tune, you can flash and drive...the adaptives have little to do except fine tune and adjust for wear over time.
I've tuned quite a few of these and have NEVER had to pull the negative off to reset.


Hope to hear that you have sorted out the OP's tune so that it shifts properly too.


Now how about a suggestion. You recommend using a Local CMR tuner to fine-tune your base tune. How about supplying that base tune unlocked so the CMR tuner can tweak the tune rather than starting from scratch??

Actually, that is incorrect as you know. The ZF transmission has 2 set procedures that can reset the adaptives and learning process for the transmission, one using a sequences through the "start button", but, the easiest, and most full proof manner is, battery disconnect for 8-12 Hrs. These processes are specified by ZF corporate.


Also, I will answer this with a post that you have made:

Re: Whippled SRT - Transmission relearn?
The trans is always learning.....so after a new tune is flashed in, it takes 25-100kms of varied driving to do a gross learn and then it continually fine tunes after that.
Best to start off gently and gradually give it more gas as it learns especially if it is now boosted. The large increase in torque from a blower will also need different numbers fed to the trans to make it work sweetly.
If you are using the Whipple base map and have just modified the fuel/spark, it will still need some more work. Their tune is really basic and needs lots of reworking/rescaling and many other changes including the torque numbers.
Look at:
Tables/Torque Calculation/Friction Torque Loss
Scalars/Torque Calculation/Max friction Adaptive Limits
Tuning these tables will change shift points and quality to better suit a blower.
Also, in the Whipple tunes I have seen, they turn off the Airflow and Spark Reduction to the trans but this can make the trans hang before changing as it is seeing too much torque. Re-enabling these in Scalars/Torque Management and allowing it to relearn will result in much faster,smoother shifts.
Your tuner should be able to sort this for you.
Kinda backs up what we say don't you think? Better to be more forth coming with the solution, then just RIPP bashing?

While you may work on a "vehicle by vehicle" basis, on a GLOBAL scale, variables like fuel quality, octane, and formulation for each geographic area come into play. Our tunes are designed to be safe, on a global scale.

For the OP, is this a GEN 1 or GEN 2 SRT system? Please contact us via Email @ ripptuning@gmail.com or call us at 718-815-1313. We are continually developing all of our systems to make our products the best they can be. We should have something new for it.

We actually do provide a base map for CMR tuners.

Please, send a data log, along with the files that say "last tune written" and "original backup file" to ripptuning@gmail.com include a brief description of the issue encountered and we will take it from there.
