    Borrowed Rob's Laptop to load software into Holley FI. But got home late after pickin' up Kole and takin' him to Basketball practice. Looks like I'll load it tomorrow.

    Still could fire it up Friday/forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif....

    Bad news..... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Got the computers talking last night, and I guess I've got 2 blown sensors. The MAP and CTS readings are all hosed up. Gonna try to get new ones today. Also, had trouble saving changes. Would change tuning parameters, save, and then go back and look - and they werent't saved /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif.... I'm hoping it's cuz the battery voltage was slightly low at 11.3 V.

    Hope I can get those sensors.../forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Are they standard GM sensors? Or something special that holley uses? If they are GM, any of the parts places should have them in stock.

    I would double check the wiring first though, make sure something didn't get mis-wired.

    Charge the battery fully, very important....

    Looks like the buggy tracks the front much like mine (though mine does this much less now). Do you like it like that? Or any plans to tweak the balance?

    Also, how do you like the tires?

    Anyway, congrats on getting it out there! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You mean suspension stiff/soft... front/back...?
    Yes,.... it is intentionally firmer in the front. The rear may be too soft for jumping in the Dunes, but we'll see. It's perfect for rockin' tho....

    Handles hi-speeds better than I expected.... and it will get there lickity-split /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif (can I say that.. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif lickity-split?!)

    Yep, that's what I was talking about. Mine is much less biased to the front than it was the last time you saw it, but it remains stiffer in the front than the rear. I really like where it's at right now.

    Cool, can't wait to see it on the trails.
