    OH man! I'm so sorry to hear that! Did they impound your vehicle?
    Hope everything is well

    I think he means when you hook the flashpro to your car and Log your cars engine specs while driving. then he sends it to his tuner who fine tunes and corrects the log to how your car SHOULD be running with the modifications you have done. After, I believe you just update the new "MAP" that your tuner gives you and repeat the process till its perfect.
    Its like dyno tuning, except your on the street, with no dyno lol

    Thx for the explanation, to bad it couldn't have been done without drawing attention........ Sounds like this requires a passenger to work the things other than driving. Hopefully others will learn from this and get a right seat tech.

    Doesn't require any effort to datalog. It just means going flat out in 3rd gear usually. So from like 2k rpm to redline in 3rd gear to record air/fuel, and tons of other engine parameters. I'm guessing he was just caught going well above the posted speed limit (reckless driving)

    Or a Valentine 1. Unfortunately its the risk you take vs going to a Dyno like @Dutchmaster states. He was probably doing a 3rd gear pull and got caught going well over the speed limit. Has nothing to do with a co pilot but just bad luck.

    What speed did you get caught at? Are you just being charged with a fine and points on your license?

    Assuming he has not raised his rev limiter the maximum speed he could be going in 3rd gear is 79mph according to the transmission calculator I just used.
