I'm about to go load the software into my car. I should have a review in the next day or so once I get a chance to drive it.

You got the cable unlocked. Nice.

Were you talking about after shifting into gear from reverse and then when you go to hit the gas or just that the car lags shifting out of reverse?

Until I get more seat time, I will just say that this software removed all of the main annoyances I had with DCT. My only real complaint would be that when shifting into gear from P/N/R it goes into D mode. It is a very cool feature that now the transmission remembers your S mode preference rather than defaulting to S3.

I was referring to the lag when shifting into reverse from a drive gear, or into gear from reverse... it typically takes a few seconds before it engages. I notice this most during three point turns. Basically as you described it above.

Yes, that is significantly minimized IMO. When I go to visit my parents at their house, I have to back out of the driveway onto a slope and that lag was always annoying. I think that will be my test for exactly how minimal the reverse lag is with the DCT software.

Will do, buddy. So far, I would agree with Drew and say it's a must for SC owners. I just need to drive it like crazy to really be able to explain the differences well.

I'm basically living through you until I get this cable unlocked! Drive hard or BAN!

This was addressed with 240EE, no?

I'll do my best! I've been working a lot lately, so I'm hoping I'll have time this weekend.

Mine didn't go away and my car should have been updated to 240 prior to the SC tune.

My Car is a 2011.5 - not sure what DCT software came with it. I can tell you that my car has had this lag since day one. Separately, my ESS software for the supercharger was purchased about 2-2.5 months ago.
