    I thought higher octane is "better" cause its burns cleaner. I'm not saying I want to go 100oct. Over the counter octane booster will probably get you 92-93 max.

    Higher octane simply doesn't combust under pressure (knock). More compression or boost, higher octane required...

    Hey ya'll. I need a favor. Anyone with a @RaceChip, can you confirm that the racechip unit is "on" once the car is started? My problem is when I start the car and think the racechip unit is on instead its off and I would have to press the button on the unit to turn it on. Today when I gased up I pop the hood to makes sure it's on and it is but when I got home and pulled into the garage with the car on park I popped the hood with the car on and notice it turned off! i dont know if the display has a timer that just shuts itself off? So now when I get in I have to make sure the unit is on.

    I ran a full day in race mode this week. I'm in Texas and it was 98 degrees, but it was perfect all day. I never would have dared run race mode in those conditions all day without the regap.

    Most of the time I keep the RaceChip in sport and the car in comfort.. unless I see a potential challenge pulling up ; )

    Time will tell how well this works overall, but so far I'm more than happy.

    Our engineers just spend some more time on the US spec Stinger and also did an installation video:

    Just push a button on the unit and it will wake up the display. You don't have to go turn it on every time. If you want to change the mode, do that with the car on but the ignition off.
