Had same problem, I forgot what it was going on. But I solved it somehow. I can't recall what the problem was. I was thinking it being a torque converter. Me and another guy with Goerend converters were having the problem.

I had the same problem with the newer betas. The TNT-R eliminated the issue.

Are you running large injectors?

Mine was fine with TNT too,think it started shaking after 10psi.Haven't tried it with new setup.I tried it on my truck,when it had a built tranny only.
Yep starts shaking around 10psi....no power in first until i hit second gear than i have twice the power almost sound like my truck grew 12 move valves :banghead:

are you running anything else for electronics? I'll be adding a TST to my setup as soon as I get it reprogrammed to see if it fixes my lame first gear. I get that feeling that as my truck shifts through the gears it gets faster just as you describe too.

Exactly what I experienced with the newer beta. But minus the shake and the pop.

I did have the pop with the TNT-R, but switching the timing to 3 solved that. In my case, I believe the Large injectors were part of the pop caused by timing, that is why I was curious as to which injectors you have.

I read some where that the tnt-r dosent pop as easy on the earlier models like tnt.....actually as im thinking about it when i do a 2wd launch with 4.3 it wount even spin...but when i used tnt a 2wd launch at 10psi it would spin through 2nd gear

Not trying to highjack the thread. But what size injectors do you want to start going with 3 or so on timing? I haven't had a pop yet or anything but I am curious

I know its something to do with Torque Management and Fueling. I will be going through my notes tomorrow and let you know what I did to resolve it. I can't recall.

On TNT or TNT/r. Mine feels like that unless I have TQ on 2 or higher. and Shift Defuel mode.

TNT won't run any better. And it is the trucks ECM that has a problem with going back to beta, not the smarty. :thumbsup: You really need a turbo upgrade to be burning all the fuel even that program will be putting out.

It's not the converter.....


The problem is the ECM limiting power in first gear. Bullydog calls it Torque Management and Smarty calls it Shift limiting. The beta programs don't have the setting to allow this to be disabled. The TNT software lets us shut it off by killing the gear selector on the dash. The BD RAD box would let us do this also by killing the whole dash when you turn it on.
