When the Tranny Locks it allows the engine torque to flow seamlessly to the wheels when not locked it is lost in slip! Better power and econ when locaked as long as the engine can deliver the power needed. With a tuner this is rarely a problem. Mine locks early i am guessing 40

Unless you have 4.10 or lower gears, you should be seeing lock-up around 45 mph with the race tunes.

I'm running Spartan w/ 3.73 & I wish I could get lock up to be sooner. Mine locks at 50 mph. Can I achieve this with just a adjustment or is it more complicated?

When we release our upcoming update, the 250 tune will have enhanced lock-up. It will early lock at 45 MPH and stayed locked. If you have a basic level 1 license, the 210 tow locks up at 45 mph. All of the other tunes lock up just like the truck did stock.

Jeff, thanks for the reply. I do have the basic level 1. I run the 210 daily. Will there be a charge for this update to me & how will I know when you have released it? Thanks again...
