    Beta2.0 updated!
    Still to early but I had to report that for the first time ever I had the smoothest shifts since owning this truck :D:D:D:D literally the most flawless consecutive shifts ever!!!
    The tip in rolls in nice to the power beta2.0 gave us down low and revhang, pinging ,have been reduced with no dead spots to report yet.

    My only complaint is the remainder of the rev hang from 0-30kmh @ 1700-2700rpm.

    I successfully updated my truck from 04A70 to 04A71 with the pirated tech stream! Worked like a charm!
    Afterwards I immediately loaded 04A71 2.0 BETA 93 Octane.
    After an idle and a drive I can say that I like it! Compared to 1.05 FOB 91 it is definitely more linear power (less stumbles and surges).
    Better throttle control and less rev hang too!
    More to come after I let it settle in for a couple hundred miles.

    Thanks Mat! Each tune keeps getting better and better!

    Just wanted to provide some feedback on the 04A71 2.0 Beta 93 Octane file after 75ish miles. (zendesk ticket #10087)

    previous tune 1.05 FOB93

    Pros:
    - Linear power throughout the power band
    - Seems much more responsive
    - Smooth and easy to shift

    Con:
    - Throttle seems very touchy in 1st gear at low RPMs. 1.05 FOB93 had very nice low rpm throttle control (1k-1.5k). I could crawl along very easily in stop and go traffic or when offroading over uneven/loose terrain. I would never break the wheels loose or lurch forward. With 2.0 beta, if i'm crawling along at low rpms and try to give it just a little gas the truck jumps/lurches forward a bit.

    Overall, its a great file and if i could have the low rpm throttle control of the 1.05 FOB file with all the other pros of this file i'd be ecstatic. That said, i will continue to run the beta as the pros definitely outweigh the one con i have so far (which may settle in as i put more miles on it). I remain impressed with the progress of each new file!

    Thanks Mat!

    Im having trouble figuring out where to get in on this 04a70 2.0 beta action.

    Also what is this i read about converting 04a70 to 71?

    Flashed my 2018 to 04A71 before flashing beta2.0 tonight. Drove some usual routes around 15 miles. Impressed so far.

    Most noticeable is how damn smooth the truck shifts. That nagging upper rpm rev hang is nearly gone.

    I will data log and send info to zendesk after 50miles.

    So is the update from a70 to a71 necessary prior to installing 2.0 when it comes out? If its not needed is it something that i should do?

    I went from 70-71 and that alone made a decent difference,, not only that but 71 seems to get the updates before 70 ,,

    Hey folks just to let you guys know I am not sure how much of the "rev hang" can be eliminated in very low RPM (under 2000) because this is when the ECU has active idle feedback so that when the RPM falls the ECU doesn't have to catch it and stumble

    If you can do 2000rpm ,that would be better than 2700rpm were it is now and also if possible drop the activation from 30kmh to 25 or 20kmh ,the lower the better.

    By the way your KILLING IT:thumbsup:
