You can't beat the service RDP provides and the tunes are amazing! They really wake the car up!


Thankyou sir

I'm still going to be able to use the tuner I purchased from you previously just as I always have, right? This just affects tuners sold after Jan 2nd?

Will this effect cars that have bolt ons and have already been tuned?

I was hoping to wait but you guys tuned a stock 2015 GMC Sierra or Silverado? Wondering if it’s worth it to get the trans shifting better but the overall difference customers have seen.

We can complain, curse, but that's probably all.
But still here in Europe, emission issues are far worse.
Even petrol engines must have a particulate filter (for example new Bullitt)
You still have the situation better.

We will see how the situation develops.
Perhaps it will not be so bad.

These bad "waves" in Europe are done by Germany.
They were cheating with VW emissions and now they play the greatest ecologists on Earth

They have already enforced a ban on the operation of internal combustion engines in parts of their territory, and in the future they want to push for a complete ban on fossil-fueled engines.
Only electric vehicles.

And the rest of Europe yes yes yes ...
Like Germany, we'll do that too.

It is bad.

Sorry for

I found this letter on another site.



"Dear Advantage licensees,
In accordance with our Consent Decree with the EPA, effective January 2, 2019, we will implement tiered access for dealers using our Advantage Tuning Software. Prior to this, you will be required to complete our Customer Verification and Training Programs to continue to have access to parameters in Advantage after that date.
There are two steps you will have to take in order to continue to access Advantage software after January 2nd:
1. Verification. In the coming days, you will receive an email inviting you to fill out a 5 minute survey through our Learning Management System. Click the link in the email to complete the questions.
2. Training. Following your verification, we will send you an email to complete the Customer Training Program. This 30 minute self-directed training involves reading a presentation and taking a short quiz to confirm your knowledge of the covered topics. You will need to score 100%, but you may take the quiz as many times as necessary.
If you complete the Customer Verification and Training Programs before January 2nd, you will continue your access to Advantage without issue. Based on your responses, the only change you may experience after that date will be the level of parameters you will be permitted to access.
We will be limiting parameter access after January 2nd in accordance with our consent decree.
• Tier 1 – "Professional"
Parameters such as Tire Size, Axle Ratio, Shift Patterns, and other Transmission Controls. Those that have no effect on emissions.
• Tier 2 – "Calibrator"
Fueling, Timing and other Engine Controls which, upon review, have a legitimate use when calibrating a street vehicle but may have an effect on emissions.
• Tier 3 – "Research and Development" (R&D)
Parameters which directly affect emissions/diagnostics controls and do not have a legitimate use when calibrating a street vehicle.
• Note: This will not affect any user defined parameters or value files.
We are always available to answer any questions. Please contact our Customer Success Team at any time. In the meantime, below are answers to FAQs you may have:
Q: How does this affect my Advantage software?
A: Advantage software does not change. In accordance to our Consent Decree with EPA, we have to limit access to certain parameters and determine that access for each dealer based on their expressed required use of Advantage.
Q: What will be done with my personal information?
A: By completing the Customer Verification and Training Programs, you qualify to have your information kept private. We will not release your personal information to EPA. We will only use your personal information as an internal record of your completion of the programs and to ensure you are given the correct level of access to Advantage parameters.
Q: When does this information need to be submitted by?
A: You must finish the Customer Verification and Training Programs by January 2, 2019 to see the least impact on your current Advantage Support.

Derive Systems is committed to providing the best custom tuning software to our dealers while we work in accordance with our Consent Decree. We look forward to your continued business.
Any questions, please respond to Compliance@DeriveSystems.com"


I am assuming that all of the talk about "licensees" taking mandatory training and filling out surveys isn't directed toward end users like myself, rather guys like DynoSteve that actually manipulate the software.

Well, what it means to me is that I need to get with you to get a cam kit ordered before the deadline so that you can still write me a tune. I know I told you that I would call this week, and I still hope to. I'm dealing with an issue with the shop that is installing my gears right now, after that I need a set of tires. I'll balance the race budget after that so I know how much I can spend on a cam and related components. Talk to you soon.

I use HPT, I haven't seen any announcements from them yet about whether or not this will have an impact on their product.

But even if it does, it would probably mean future use, and you just keep the software you currently have.

Will you write a verdict what has changed and how will it affect us end users please?
After the 2nd of january of course.
