Xcal 2 --- Really SCT? Really?

Spent the last hour messing with all their odds and ends, updating drivers, downloading software, updating software, installing new firmware on the handheld. A bunch of BS. All I need is to push a new tune to the handheld so I can have the car tune installed and @ the dyno for 2:30PM.

It shouldn't be nearly as grueling to do these simple tasks. Then... when I'm finally on the HOMESTRETCH.... This:



Look closely, it's telling me to use the version or later release (there is none) of which I AM USING!

SCT software has always been crap for me.

Nothing a remote tuner or anyone remote can do at this point. I need someone with operable software local to me to push a tune to my handheld. I already have the tune and need the file on the Xcal2.

Re: Xcal 2 --- Really SCT? Really?

IF you want to push it out till lunch I might could swing by the house and see if we can load it there. But that won't be till between 12-1230 that I could be there.

If y'all are going to Cody's...I'm sure he would load the files up for you if need be.

I though about going to see Cody, but I can come by at 12:30/12:45 and meet you at your house. I am on the phone with SCT so I will let you know what I find ASAP.

Re: Xcal 2 --- Really SCT? Really?

No, he doesn't have SCT software as he doesn't use SCT.

Although.. I found the solution. It had nothing to do with SCT. The file I downloaded did not transfer correctly. I finally notice that it had a file size of 0KB. After downloading the correct file and pushing it to the handheld everything is perfect! How Retarded! Instead of giving me a 2.2.12 version response it should have noticed the corrupt file.

Re: Xcal 2 --- Really SCT? Really?

Now you're just asking way too much. It's like that windows error that will pop up from time to time...it's just a blank message box. No title, no text. Just an OK button. lol

I get it at work a couple times a month....on XP.

Re: Xcal 2 --- Really SCT? Really?

I would like to point out something though....

The whole culprit of this problem is iOS. Yep, an Iphone. Not matter what I did my brother was always forwarding the email and attachment to me from his iPhone4. Well, once I downloaded it directly onto my EVO and transferred it to my computer at work it worked perfect (Yahoo is blocked at work).

Damn iOS!

I trust Cody. He did mine and all 3 tunes I feel are pretty safe. Little expensive but you get what you pay for.

Yea, I've seen Worm work magic. We've known him for a long time. He was Modding his Mom's Camaro at the house and crap before he moved in his little shop. Now he's in his own built shop.

I'll always bring my car back to Stang-Hi. Cody did me a huge favor after TPS messed up somethings. What's bad is I was Benji's biggest advocate at one time:

As have me and my brother. It was really painful to have to go through that with someone I considered a buddy in this industry. He has made numerous mistakes on my brother's 03 also. We no longer use him for anything.

We're working on my brother's 10th:


No luck at the dyno today. Tune went from a super safe rich 10.5:1 A/F (what he had) to a 13:1 A/F lean lean lean. We weren't able to get Rick to fix it soon enough. We will have to get back on the dyno another day unfortunately! Although I did get some good videos. I'll update soon.







Don't mind the quality. I got a brand new phone (replacement) today and forgot to take off the plastic covering over the camera lens.
