Answers to daily questions our customers are asking about RaceMe Tuners and why RaceMe is the best product on the market for Dodge Ram Cummins 6.7L Trucks?
Customers are asking why we do not upgrade our system to use smartphones with an app instead of the actual monitor which would help the non-computer savvy updating to the latest software and would save us a lot of money. The reason is simply a severe safety concern.
This would allow lunatic hackers from all over the world to get access to your truck and to get control over it from 1000 or 10 000 miles away. A hacker then could do with your truck whatever the CAN bus allows, including to activate airbags or to apply brakes or anything else that can be commanded over the CAN bus. This is an authentic scenario, every computer system or cell phone can be hacked, and it is only a matter of time that this would happen if we would go that way. There would not be an easier way to kill Americans driving on the highway without any risk for punishment for this sick people. They even would be able to watch the accident with the rear view camera of your truck.
If we ever would go that way we would offer a different and safer app like the one that is used from the competitor.
RaceMe tuners that won’t void warranty at 6.7 cummins?
The only must is to remove the DPF, EGR and DEF can stay in place or be removed it dosen’t matter at all.
As soon as you program truck back to stock x you have to put the hardware parts back in otherwise the truck will throw a lot of codes.
For the customers comparing RaceMe to other brands
All Raceme tunes up to 200hp are safe to the engine, and as long as customers don’t use the full power on a cold engine, they will never have any issues. You will not find any reports on blown head gaskets caused by RaceMe tunes like you can read it if you look at some competitors failure lists.
Increase the performance safely without reducing component’s life
Some customers are complaining that with RaceMe tunes you will see only up to 34psi boost and not 40 to 45 like some competitors products achieve at the same power stage.
The reason is that our tunes are made to produce as much horsepower as possible with the lowest possible boost to reduce the stress on components. This is also helping to get better mileage because the high boost causes high exhaust backpressure making it harder for the engine to breathe and causing higher EGT´s as well which not only causes bad economy, it also reduces the lifetime of components. So high boost has several disadvantages if it is not necessary as in race trucks.
Warming up your engine without flooring the pedal is the key to keep your Cummins healthy and to not shorten its lifetime
Customers are asking what stage of power to use when towing heavy. Basically, I want to state that you can even use the highest power stage if you do it with common sense and care and with control over your right foot. In case of having a leadfoot, it is better to use the lowest setting for heavy towing.
Drive safely with RaceMe tuner
If you drive conventional and not like to have a race truck and never do full throttle shifts from 4th to 5th and 6th gear you will not have issues.
Why is it important not to use cruise control programmed with a higher power level when towing the trailer
When towing a trailer it’s very important not to use cruise control having a higher power stage programmed, and even with a lower power setting, you can destroy your trucks transmission within seconds if you use the resume button to bring the truck back to a higher speed level. Doing that will cause back shifting with the maximum power the engine produces which can burn up your trans clutches within seconds. So if you use cruise control be very careful and use it only on the level ground and if you have to accelerate to a speed level after slowing down, do it only with your right foot and never with the resume button.
