Increase performance with up to 50% faster gear shifts on your smart fortwo 453 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 is a great stand alone solution to improve your vehicle's performance, but also works well in addition to an ECU tune/ Piggy Back Box.
Often times vehicle manufactures will limit the full potential of a vehicle to compensate for all levels of drivers and maintenance, or because the manufacturer knows that in 18 months they will be releasing a more powerful version of that vehicle and can adjust the limiters to allow for this power increase.
So, the idea of the AutoFlash is to not only increase shift speed but to increase torque limitations throughout the gearing (except for 1st and reverse gears as we leave these at factory spec for safety) which in turn changes the speed of a shift.
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 smart 453 models.

About the MADNESS AutoFlash:
The MADNESS AutoFlash is a revolutionary new product not like anything else available on the market today. It is a tool which can access settings within your vehicles engine and gearbox control units allowing you to increase power and torque.
AutoFlash can be used along with an ECU remap already existing on your car and will not erase an existing maps, it can also be used with any tuning box and other engine hardware modifications without issues.
The AutoFlash maps install through the OBD port within 30-90 seconds. It will not change the ECU flash counter or file size which could alert the manufacturer to the car being modified, this tune is undetectable. We are able to access the information needed through the Central Convenience Module through the OBD Port.
If you ever take your car to a dealer for service or software update and they overwrite the AutoFlash, simply re-install it just as you did during the first installation. You can do this as many times as needed to your vehicle. Keep in mind that the AutoFlash will lock on to your cars VIN Number on first use and cannot work on any other vehicle after you sync it with your car.
Please note! Once this unit is linked with your vehicle it is married to the car by the VIN Number. While you can use it over and over again on your car if needed after a dealer visit, but you cannot use it on another car. Trying to sync it with another vehicle once you paired it with your car can do damage to the item and the ECU in the car. Due to the way the unit is designed to work it cannot be used on another vehicle once it is paired with yours.
Due to this we cannot accept returns for this item in any way. We have no way to tell if the unit was paired or not with a vehicle and if it is returned we cannot use it again. Because of this all sales are final on this unit once you purchase it. There are no returns or exchanges of any kind and all sales are final. Please be sure to ask any questions prior to ordering.

MADNESS Autoworks is your One Stop Shop for customizing, accessorizing and servicing your favorite ride.
After spending over a decade customizing countless vehicles and working with many local and international suppliers we have been fortunate to be able to offer a very large inventory of products to our fellow enthusiasts. However, at times we have found that what was available was not good enough or perhaps other options were also needed. When this happens we either design and manufacture the product ourselves or tap one of our manufacturing partners and ask them to assist and make a product to our specs.
Over the years that we have been in business we have formed a number of partnerships with our most trusted manufacturing partners and suppliers to help us produce products that we felt were needed and not available. At times we have also invested in infrastructure, manufacturing equipment and have recruiting some of the best talent that could help us design and build superior products and make them available to our fellow drivers.
Our goal at MADNESS is to provide top quality products that has been tested and used in our own vehicles and have proven to last and provide a good value for the investment. We do not design and build our products to be the cheapest, we design then to be the best value for the money and stand behind them the same way we stand behind our work.
