Hmm if we do the preorder, is that all we are responsible for paying? Or do they want the rest of the money when it's done?

@MRS-Colin will have to confirm, but I assume when the product is released, the rest of the $200 (or $400 depending if they need to step up to the next level device) will be due.

Product is complete. Preorder is to get additional functionality. Please read the blog post.

Okay so if the product is complete and we order now, how will the device be updated for the additional functions? Or are you looking for a set dollar amount before you finish the product and ship it out?

The functionality that is complete as of right now is listed on the product page. If we achieve a certain number of pre-orders as listed on the blog and product, I'll continue developing the additional features. All of it has been done for other platforms so I know it is able to be done for this platform with the GM controllers. Its the time involved with developing more features that prompted a pre-order.

If I get an ocean of preorders here within the next few weeks I can devote time to making them work. If we don't get many preorders, units will ship with existing functionality only as the market has shown it isn't read to "put its money where its mouth is". Units are able to be sent back and reflashed with updated functionality if more is developed at a later date. This will be inexpensive and have a quick turnaround.

This brings in to question though. If ABS/Traction Control doesn't get added to the early device, is it worth switching to a manual/dual master brake set-up so that the use of larger brakes (Oh just say Blue ZR1 Calipers) can be used... hmm.

Edit: How sick would these look on a Twin with a LS3 under the hood:
