hows rcd tunes holdin up

just ordered an sct touch extreme with rcd 450, 525, and 585. just wondering how people are likin the tunes and if there have been lots of problems with them. only reason i got it over spartan or blackmaxx was for the blue tooth.

First of all, I don't have RCD tunes. But I can comment on your clutch.

I'll tell you from experience, SB 3600# dual disc with 12 buttons per side won't hold up to the high HP tunes for these trucks. But SB doesn't offer hydraulic upgrades for these trucks either, so the highest option they have is for 3850# DD with 12 Feramic buttons per side, and that's supposedly good for 950 at the flywheel, and with 20% rule, that's only 760 RWHP. With the torque these trucks are making, I'm still worried about the 3850, but I'm going to try it out anyway, don't have many other options.

so i got the tuner her just waiting for tunes to get emailed, but i cannot find the option to turn off the dpf. guy told me it would ask when i install the tune but it doesnt.

also had transmission option, dyno,race, or stock. is that asking if i want stock or race shifting, or asking if i actually have a stock transmission?

il also add. the pre loaded sct tunes suck compared to my diablo predator. the diablo poured black smoke, way better transmission tuning, and more bottom end. i really hope these river city tunes are allot better than the pre loaded ones.

and one of the posts said tranny will slip in seccond gear with the 585 should i not be running these without an upgraded tranny
