Shift 50% Faster With This smart fortwo 451 AutoFlash by MADNESS!

Increase performance with faster gear shifts on your smart with the AutoFlash by MADNESS!

The MADNESS AutoFlash relies on updating the maps of the TCU to allow the gearbox to improve shift times and bypass the torque limiter.

The AutoFlash has been thoroughly tested both on the road and the track and we are sure you will agree that the shift and positive feel of the engine after the flash makes for a superb upgrade.

Due to the fact that the AutoFlash is adjusting the shift points of the gearbox, the difference is more noticeable on automatic transmission models, but it will still make a nice difference on manual transmission models as well.

"...smart fortwo 451..."

"Due to the fact that the AutoFlash is adjusting the shift points of the gearbox, the difference is more noticeable on automatic transmission models, but it will still make a nice difference on manual transmission models as well."

Hmm - wonder if my 451 has an automatic or manual transmission? Since when was there a choice of two different models of transmission for the 451 (for the US)??

Is there a confusion here between models and modes?

davidp,

Yes it does! We have videos of other vehicles using the autoflash on our youtube channel. We just have not created one with the smart fortwo 451 but we are working it. It is one of our best selling products. Here is a video of the Autoflash being introduced:

Any data on the long term affects? Is there danger of hurting anything since you are bypassing a limiter? What about using on an older engine (> 100K miles)?
