20 PROcede kits are leaving here today. The rest of them are leaving when we get our next shipment of harnesses in (presumably early next week). We're trying to get some v2 kits out today but the clock seems to be moving awfully fast.

Thanks for the update. Anxiously awaiting my v2, although I don't think I was in the first wave since I have not seen any charges to this point.

Only 30 or so v2 upgrades have been charged and processed. Once we ship out those, we'll process the next 30, ship them out, and so on and so on. Those who are unsatisfied with this schedule should cancel their order and perhaps place it again later when we have them ready for same day shipping.

Shiv, I was just asked how long would it take to receive Procede with the V2 upgrade if ordered today. What do I tell them?

I was just thinking, Maybe he was going to release V2 but because of all the transmission scares going around, he decided to do some more R&D or tuning it back a bit to idot proof it. The last thing hes going to need is 600 people with there trannies blown. But just speculating.

It really all depends on how much support the first few batches of kits will require once received by the end user. With the PROcede, we were pleasantly suprised by how how little support was needed. v2 is even easier to install so I suspect we'll ramp up shipments quickly. But for now, even my best estimate may not be accurate. God knows that even giving an est ship date and not meeting causes a riot around here

Nope.... The delay was purely manufacturing related. R&D was done weeks ago. Same with user software, firmware, etc,.

shiv,

how is the installation to be done? will there be a video online or any literature or are they included with v2?

Cheers!

I hope your surgery went well, and you're recovering fast (since you obviously have so much work to do). When you you say '20 PROcede kits,' does this mean 20 PROcede v1.47 kits or do you think you'll be able to ship out the 1st batch of v2.0 harnesses (the ones processed and cc charged) today or will we have to wait until early next week? Also, are these all going out next day shipping (referring to the shipping cost discrepancy...some of us charged $180, instead of $158, which is fine as long as it goes out next day)? Thanks.

Does that mean that your going to let the Beta testers talk now,, or just wait till like next Wed. for V2 owners to chime in after they installed their V2's?

And congrats on the sex change! : )

I'll trade you more vicodin for the V2 harness !! oh wait.. maybe not legal... I'll let it fall out of my pocket while walking in front of you Or I'll volunteer to stick some wires in a harnesses for a little while...

Got this procede sitting on my desk just waiting for the harness to show up....(want to do the work just once)

.... of course you guys processed my card for the order, so I guess I shouldn't do too many wires huh...

Maybe 1 vicodin, 6 wires, and 2 beers if I can drive by and pickup a harness this afternoon

If we never installed the version 1 can we go directly to version 2 once we get the harness?

That's possible from CA to the East coast...UPS Priority overnight. I don't care as long as I get it soon.

EDIT -- just looked at my AMEX...it was actually charged $170 ($20 shipping), not $180.

I'm assuming that i can put the 2.0 map on the procede and use the 2.0 harness and never have to hook up v1.x and the vacuum lines..etc
