why can't the people over at smarty make it on the fly? only thing i don't like about it. what do you guys think i should go with? i have the torq tube mod, and a straight pipe. looking for better mileage and that :peelout factor in the butt dyno, cost isn't really a factor but i only want to have to do this once, also, are there any stacks or upgrades with the smarty to improve performance?

Well, if you like the ability to shift on the fly and have a digital gauge setup then definetly the Edge would be the way to go.

The Smarty has the Revo upgrade for more power.

yeah, but i don't plan on any tranny upgrades for a while, don't think i'll be able to run the smarty to it's full potential anyways. plus i'll have built in gauges, wondering if i can turn the edge all the way up and still be good on my trans. also what doesn't the edge do? pressure, timing, duration? and if it doesn't do something, can i stack with something that will make up for it?

I unforntunetly had the banks six gun in mine which is on the fly... took it out and put the smarty in mine and its a night and day difference... i have stock tranny as well.. i run it on level 3 all day long.. it runs great! talk to bob wagner he will hook you up with what you need.. I do wish it was on the fly though.. good luck:peelout

yeah, but level three of nine is a waste to me. and i still would have to buy guages and everything else to make them work, not trying to have a top fuel truck, just want some more mileage and on the fly power

I have the edge juice and it is a nice starter box but I plan to bump up to a smarty in the not too distant future. JMHO but on the fly is overrated...I never change my juice from 3/1.

You've never driven the Smarty then. Level three is what I use 90% of the time and I have a clutch that handles level 9 REVO-TNT. I also think adjust on the fly is overrated. Once you get the Smarty you'll understand :thumbsup.

I've both the edge juice and a Smarty and the Smarty just distributes the power better. I run my Edge on #0 and my Smarty on #3 and my truck runs great!

not exactly set on the edge but do like the fact that it comes with it's own gauges, if i could get a smarty w/ attitude i would. i could also stack the edge to make up the difference.

Mine doesn't at all on my 99. With the 125hp Injectors and the stock turbo it would get up in temp with the fuel setting on 5. but I am just talking 1400 degrees at wot in 5th gear. Since the turbo upgrade it will not hit 1300 in 5th at wot on level 6X5 wich is the Hot unlock...

I love being able to push the button and I am on kill or push it and I am in towe or drive or economy mode.. None of this wait and let me load another program stuff... Plus the safety's, alarms and 10 + gauges in one display... Very nice...

Those gauges are not as accurate as individual gauges. The attitude monitor displays what the ECM tells it too except for EGT. I'd go with a Smarty.
