Mine only runs 9s. Stripped down race truck? What are you smoking? Still has a full box with line x and tailgate. Weighs 6000 pounds. Now instead of being a douche maybe learn something. When we have traction issues we leave at less rpms and roll into the throttle sooner. With doing 1.47 60ft with a 6000 pound truck at a crappy track i think we are on to something.

I can see the argument for a DSP at the track to just automate that process. Nothing wrong with wanting to make the computer do the work for you, IMO.

That said, I'm a big fan of the "one tune to rule them all" for street use. I haven't used my DSP2 switch in 8 years. Not even sure I have a DSP2 OS loaded.

I like the dsp due to the fast weather changes up here and the fact that Iím always towing heavy or cruising daily so itís easier to just switch.

If I lived somewhere where the climate didnít change from 90 degrees and sunny to 20 degrees and snowing in just a 3 hr drive as it sometimes can here I could probably get away with one tune for summer and one for winter. You lower lower 48 guys got it good in that dept lol.

I like having a dsp setup. If I want to pass someone, it goes to the floor so I can pay attention to other things rather than modulating the throttle. 500+HP on a salty winter road is no bueno

I liked my switch so I could lock it up when others drove my truck...

^ Yep I could handle the race tune as a daily, but when the weather is bad itís out right dangerous for most. My wife wrecked my truck in the rain due to the power. A valet almost did the same thing too and that was only my 500hp tune.

What about the smoke tunes BRUH!
After having the dsp5 I don’t see a need for it in a DD
Dedicated sled/drag it’s nice for various track conditions but ultimately it’s just a convenience feature
Now who is going to pony up and Free their L5P and give us some feedback

That’s the fing point, I don’t have a 1000hp truck... At best it could make 800 maxing out the current chargers... What’s the problem with loading up some progressively stronger tunes and seeing where your making progress? I tune my own garbage and like to make small changes then test it. The dsp works fine for me. If you don’t like it then don’t use the f@cker...

Damn, and all because I said I don't like DSP switches. I never meant to start an argument. I do have a DSP switch in my LBZ, and I use it like many have said, to test tuning changes. The overall horsepower is the same, but when making timing, boost, fuel pressure, or throttle position changes, it makes it easier to compare than flashing one at a time. I have never understood why people say they have trouble controlling a high horsepower truck in bad conditions. I have never had trouble not pushing the pedal down hard. Do some people tune their throttles so they're super sensitive to throttle inputs? I always liked it to be more progressive for that very reason.
