Most people usually leave it in stage 1 as stage 2 causes the wheels to spin a little too much from what I've read.

Yea, I would go with gCobalts suggestion. Uninstall, reinstall, and give it another shot. If theres still a problem, drive without it connected to make sure everything works on its own and then maybe contact your seller about a replacement.

On a side note; I was told you couldnt shift from 1 to 0 or 2 to 1 while driving, but mine does it without trouble.

it may be too late but before you resort to taking out make sure you try turning off the car completely for a few minutes or even overnight and put the shift plus in neutral BEFORE turning on the car. thats the way it works as far as i can tell.

if you already tried that then sorry for sounding all snooty haha it just didnt sound like you tried turning off the car before flipping any switches
