I think Motec is prohibitively expensive for most people on this platform.

I run an M150 on my racecar, but yes there are not many around, as said above the cost puts most people off.

If I were to ditch the stock ecu, I'd go with a motec. @DarkPira7e is on point. Stock ECU was intentionally left open for us peasants. Was a great move. Someday I'll start tinkering in earnest.

I was inferring that they are out on track most of the time or working on their project with a team, probably using their downtime to replace their transmission, axles, etc. before the next stage

Not at all, but most folks with MoTeC are willing to solve their own problems, rather than looking to others for a solution. That's why they went MoTeC to begin with, right?

Mine is auto.. the problem is only with the shifting on D position.. other than D is great..
Can you share the setup pleaze ?
I want to triple checked mine.
Mine is actually base v5 packages from the motec web.
Nathan from motec sent it to me through email

Yes correct sir.. i was desperate to solve this problem inside our circle for 2 years... that is why i came into this forum looking for a new angle.
Sometime as talking with other people.. we have new idea to whats wrong with our car in the end.

IIRC the two twins that were actually able to make use of the GReedy ITBs by running them open like Gawd intended are both running MoTec.
