MADNESS 453 TCU flash upgrade (transmission flash upgrade)

Hi has any one have exerience with the flash upgrade MADNESS offers ?

smart fortwo 453 AutoFlash by MADNESS Online Store - smart car Parts and Accessories

according to them the flash bypasses the torque limiter to some degree offering more torqued and faster shifting. This may be a great add on after having the ecu upgrade installed.

Thoughts?

I just ordered myself the ECU tune and should be here sometime next week. This would be the second mod if you wanted more performance. It sounds interesting... I'm gonna enjoy my ECU first and decide later and check up on this thread.

This particular thread is about a 453 product; just for clarification this person recently purchased a 451 model.
