I get that, but there's a right way of doing things and a wrong way, they went about it the wrong way.Cant blame them, those ECUs are easy to work with, are the same/similar across an entire model, and there's higher demand. The GC is a very small market so the returns just arent there. I'm surprised they ventured into it at all to be honest.
Fully agree and lol @ their post.I get that, but there's a right way of doing things and a wrong way, they went about it the wrong way.
Every update in the thread was how things were looking promising or some BS, then after stringing people along for not just a short time, but for 2+yrs getting their hopes up, they decide it's too much work, "putting it on the back burner for now", blah blah blah.
That's complete BS IMO. They were knowledgeable enough to know from the get go that the Hyundai ECUs were tough to crack AND that there's not that big of a market in the first place when compared to something like the Mustang or Camaro.
I work for a software company and we kind of ****ed ourselves over by telling people we were getting ready to release a brand new version of our software, only for it to be released 3yrs later (this summer). We lost a good deal of business by telling people we were doing something way earlier than we should have. Kind of like what DS did by stringing people along. They got tired of the "it's close guys!" line and went elsewhere.....which is what I did as far as tuning goes. If you look in the DS thread, you'd see that I was pretty willing to wait a while for it to come to fruition, however I wasn't willing to wait after the updates became less frequent with no proof that they were actually working on it anymore.
Edit: And they're still stringing people along...
I'm doing a custom BTR tune in mid November and am wondering the differences between what they're capable of vs. this solution. This is pretty awesome regardless!
Hopefully its not like Diablow/SCT or others for other markets where it "Marries" itself to the car, IE it swaps the stock tune with the new tune, thus you need to retain it and cant use it on other cars.I would think it would have the stock tune installed, at least. Then, it makes you wonder if it'll read your current tune...and a lot of people have them. So will I (finally) get to see what SFR changed when I bought their canned tune? I can see a lot of "tune sharing" going on really soon...which is awesome for all of us!
I think they did post that it will be "married" to the car. So one module can tune only one car. From a business standpoint I can see why they would do this.Hopefully its not like Diablow/SCT or others for other markets where it "Marries" itself to the car, IE it swaps the stock tune with the new tune, thus you need to retain it and cant use it on other cars.
