Keep the focus on your car and you'll do just fine.

We can take control of the ETC if we choose to, but on the SMG, it gets much more involved very quickly. So for now, we haven't found any reason to remove the stock computers control of the ETC. We are looking at writing strategy to take complet control over the SMG trans. I'm not completely happy with how they do their shift strategy, and I think it can be improved upon. This is a long process to get it right, so I can't give a time frame on it. If you have a 6spd car and have found good reason to take over the Throttle, it definately can be done, we do it on the Nissan's and the corvettes.
I've downloaded the GUI, and right away dug into the transmission screens. Wow! This stuff is really nice. You might be familiar with dedicated gear shift control boxes from Pectel and Motec...but none of them delve into automatic transmission control, just sequentials with air shifting or electric shifting. Very intriguing.
