Flash Tuning

Flash Tuning, or ‘Remapping’, is the best way to tune your vehicle, provided the tuner has sufficient capability and experience to provide a high quality file and alterations of hundreds of signals and ‘maps’ within a vehicle’s engine computer.

At RD Technik we have spent years working with a number of tuners from around the globe and finally come together to bring to market the most technically advanced flash tuning solutions and highest quality remapping.

We do not simply buy in cheap files from one of the many tuning brands purporting to be experts in tuning your vehicle. We write files here, in Australia, but we also collaborate with some of the highest calibre developers from around the globe as we believe we can only deliver the best product by working in this manner.

The team behind RD Technik has vast experience with such a range of vehicles that we are experts in all vehicles segments, including Exotics and Sports Cars, 4×4, Performance passenger vehicles, Agricultural, Truck and Commercial, Heavy Plant, Marine, Motorcycle and more.
Diesel and Petrol models are covered, and we can write files from maximum Economy to Performance, and Race files.

Models which are mechanically identical, but with power restricted from factory for marketing purposes, as all manufacturers now do, can be increased to the higher power level before we even “tune” or optimise it. This is because of the false limitations held within the ECU by the cost-cutting manufacturers, who wish to have one engine to service a host of applications and price points and outputs. The difference is simply software based and provided your tuner has the necessary expertise, as we do, this can be upgraded by Flash Tuning.

For NA motors:

We are pleased to launch RDT-Flash-PLUS. This unique tool combines a transmission remap and ECU remap on one tool simultaneously and is available for naturally aspirated vehicles.

It is also capable of tuning almost any naturally aspirated (non-turbo) vehicle via OBDII. With a true global first, this includes all untunable vehicles, such as Toyota, Lexus, new Porsche 981 and 991 models and Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti, as well as new SRT Jeep models and many more.

This is the single most exciting tool we have developed and is taking the world by storm.

RDT Tuning boxes

The RD Technik tuning modules are custom tuned for your vehicle and deliver some of the most sophisticated technology in this market segment.

Developed and written in Australia, the latest ranges of Performance engine flash tuning capabilities will satisfy the most demanding of clients. We focus the power and torque delivery right across the revs range, rather than concentrating on any particular figure from a dyno run.

Dyno gains are right up there with the best, however, there is much more to a quality flash tune than what numbers it seems on a dyno.

We tune for low down responses and to suit every day driving as well as making your vehicle faster over the rev range. Smooth, linear, punchy gains from low revs, coupled to economy gains and reliability is the aim of our Performance tune. Your vehicle will be transformed into a rapid and more efficient version of itself, rather than a race car.

Our tuning modules are multi channel, working with some of the most advanced architecture and processing power possible in a piggy back system. These units offer a direct plug in, fast installation market leading solution to those clients not wanting, or not able to benefit from, an RDT Flash Tune.

The Basics:

The units are some of the most advanced on the market, with a range of signals we can access. For example on Diesels: direct fuel, direct boost, and on many of our modules, cam shaft signal and throttle position. It depends on the application but our modules manipulate the signals from the engine that we need them to manipulate. Don’t be fooled by ‘tuners’ trying to sell you devices which they claim are superior than anything out there when they are just modifying fuelling. It matters not how sophisticated their unit claims to be at modifying fuel, or what software is being used to modify it, or whether it’s been ‘custom tuned’. They – just – alter – fuel. Things have moved on in the tuning world since the days when such primitive basic devices were deemed a suitable option, no matter how much they can be dressed up. There is always far better to be had if your tuner has suitable knowledge and skill, and the right software and hardware.

In straightforward terms, our multi channel piggy backs are safe because of their capabilities. Whereas ‘fuel-only’ chips can cause issues because EGT (Exhaust Gas Temperatures) to not be suitably controlled nor can AFR (Air Fuel Ratio). Air fuel ratio is important because just adding more fuel to an engine will raise the temperatures. Ultimately this can cause catastrophic failure of components. For this reason it is vital for your tuner to balance fuel and air. More air (more boost) will be provided by being able to directly alter boost. Increasing the boost enough to match the required level of fuel will, generally speaking, maintain safety when done correctly as we do.

Are the RDT modules DPF safe?

Yes. All of our modules are DPF (Diesel Particle Filter) safe as soot levels are the same as factory levels. Again this is due to the multi channel capabilities of our modules. The number of times we’ve had client vehicles using other ‘chips’ or inferior tuning boxes in to us with DPF issues is astounding. The first thing we do is remove their previous tuning solution which was just adjusting fuel, or a very crude method of altering more channels.

Do we cover petrol models too?

Yes our tuning modules are available for Turbo Diesel and Turbo Petrol models including all 4×4 and all new high performance models not yet tuneable via Flash Tuning such as Audi RS6/7 Audi S3, Golf 7 Gti, BMW M5, AMG 63 bi-turbo and many more.

RDT Shift and RDT Shift Plus

RD Technik is pleased to bring to market RDT-Shift a revolutionary tuning tool capable of tuning almost any transmission in existence.

The capabilities of this tool are astounding and we are pleased to be at the forefront of gearbox tuning technology.

The difficulty with the modern day vehicle is the inability to tune a vehicle’s transmission to release the engine’s true potential. The transmission always has the last say in levels of torque and power getting through to the road. The engine can be tuned as much as you wish, but the transmission will always be holding it back and tuning it can not only transform the driving experience but can also increase torque and power and economy on most vehicles.

Chips and Piggy backs can never access load limiters, but even the best ECU tunes cannot access all of the transmission load limiters on modern gearboxes and therefore there is always more torque and economy to be had. Certain transmission tuning has been available for some time, yet nothing has been able to tune a number of marque’s and especially, ‘un-tunable’ gearboxes from the likes of Toyota, Lexus, Mitsubishi, Mazda, AMG, Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, BMW and many others. This tool is not only able to tune almost any gearbox in existence, but can be done at one of our dealers through the OBDII port, and is done in seconds.

Gearbox response and shifting between gears can be made up to twice as fast, whilst being smoother, and depending on vehicle, includes alterations to shift pattern, shift point, launch control, clamping pressure, converter lock-up, torque limits and more. This leads to smoother shifting, less clutch wear, and a more rewarding drive. For Stage 2 and above engine tuned vehicles, it is an essential requirement to ensure the gearbox can appropriately and safely handle substantial improvements to torque.

In addition to the RDT-Shift, we are pleased to launch RDT-Shift-PLUS. This unique tool combines a transmission remap and ECU remap on one tool simultaneously and is available for most naturally aspirated vehicles.

As with the gearbox flash it is also capable of tuning almost any naturally aspirated (non-turbo) vehicle via OBDII. With a true global first, this includes “untunable” vehicles, such as Toyota, Lexus, new Porsche 981 and 991 models and Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti, as well as new SRT Jeep models and many more.

This is the single most exciting tool our engineers have developed and is taking the world by storm.
