MSD 7730, 7720 and 7761 - Power Grid Setup

Postby John_Heard » Tue Mar 29, 2011 1:43 pm

Anyone out there got one of these things yet? I'd like to see a .dqi file if anyone has one yet? No examples in the software download yet.

Read the other day in a magazine that MSD Is working on a Nitrous controller that will plug in to the Power Grid box. That would sure be handy to manage that stuff all in one interface.

Summit shows 7761 backordered now till 10/16...

It would be nice if at least those boys at MSD would put up the dimensions for this box so I can get my wiring layout finished up.

Update - Talked to MSD Customer Service Manager today, MSD 7761's are pushed out to February or ? Apparently they have some things to work out in the software or something.

MSD you really ought to get this stuff all debugged and ready to ship BEFORE you take people's money for them. You started selling these in MAY and here we are almost December and you still haven't shipped... Nor have you bothered to release the instructions, install footprint, or anything.

Arghhh
