One of the things that many people want to do is have a transmission that they can race on the weekends and still drive it everyday without having to deal with harsh shifts driving on the streets. With the transmission controller, we give you exactly that freedom. During everyday driving, the lower settings will give you smooth shifts during everyday driving, and at the track, the higher settings will give you full throttle shifting that are quick and crisp. Along with this you gain control over your torque converter and can bring it on faster or later depending on your driving style and likes.

The ATS Co-Pilot lockup controller provides control over converter lockup in your vehicle. Factory computers are programmed to disengage lockup under many conditions that often inhibit the performance of the transmission.

With a Five Star Torque Converter in place, unlocking the converter are no longer an issue thanks to the HD construction of the Five Star.

Push button control allows the driver to select the speed at which the converter clutch will engage and disengage. With the power off, the Commander reverts to factory control. Minimum speed for lockup is approximately 18mph. This means that the engine will not be killed by forgetting to unlock the converter clutch when coming to a stop. The Commander offers better acceleration and cooler running, as well as giving the user braking or holdback (even without an exhaust brake). If an exhaust brake is in place, the Commander has the ability to automatically control the brake and converter clutch.

The ATS CoPilot provide you the ultimate in push-button control over when the torque converter locks up in your vehicle, allowing you to select the vehicle speed where the torque converter clutch will engage (lock up) and disengage. Your truck's factory programming doesn't initiate lock up until cruising speed and disengages lock up early under many conditions, inhibiting your truck's performance. The Commander and Co-Pilot resolve this issue by holding lock up offering better acceleration and cooler transmission running temperatures.

With the Co-Pilot turned on, minimum speed for lock up is approximately 18mph. This safety feature removes worries of killing or lugging the engine, as there's no manual switching required to unlock the converter clutch when coming to a stop. With the power off, the controller reverts to factory control of converter lock up. By allowing the torque converter to stay locked up, the controller provides some engine braking even without an exhaust brake. The Commander or Co-Pilot compliment an exhaust brake perfectly and integrates seamlessly into any exhaust brake system by automatically commanding torque converter lock up when the exhaust brake is energized. This means a transfer of all of your exhaust brake's power to the transmission, giving a much more significant impact at the wheels. The ability to hold lock up during exhaust braking makes a night & day difference in your exhaust brake's end performance!!
