Never heard of it, but sounds interesting. So this + the Tactrix port replaces the Cobb?

Yes - have yet to do my first reflash . Need to buy myself a laptop as that needs to be connected to the OBD port via Tactrix 2.0 to do the flash.

According to the website, they don't have a personal (one vin) version of the software for the RX8, only the pro version. Has that changed?

^ Interesting curves.

I wonder if the program gives access to more PCM tables than the Cobb.

I would have a bit of trouble tuning if that was my computer layout...lol

More info, please. Looks like you have the usual tables defined, find any useful tables you haven't played with yet?

So its all just address based ... you plug in an offset and length / possibly dimensions, Brett?

Brett. Per your note on the S2 thread, would it benefit you in any way for me to get the Tactrix dongle to send you data? Or will remote support not be feasible at this time.

I'd be interested to see how this evolves for S2 support as well.

Looks like the Pro version and the necessary dongle run about $1100 total... not bad at all if it delivers.

There is no slave version currently available but the guy says he could create one for a cost .
As far as providing support - I need to get my own car tuned before I can think about that . Luckily will be fitting a new engine soon so can experiment with my old one without fear
