Default TMaxx break in complete and now I have a ?

I have a slight studder or jerk when first accelerating. I thought it was the break in settings but it seems to still be doing it after a few changes to the H and L screws. Does anyone have any advice on how I can eliminate the jerking of the trans when taking off? Thanks!

Put a forward only conversion in it. Its got a clutch inside the transmition that makes it jerky like that, the only way to eliminate that is by what I said above. That clutch is what allows the tranny to have forward and reverse!!

It seems to disappear (at least I dont notice it too bad) after a few tanks of fuel.
Hammer the throttle and its about gone.

This is normal since you have a total of 3 clutches in the truck. One on the clutch bell directly off the engine, one for the forward and reverse function(actually there are two in there, but one per direction), and one for the 2 speed.

The problem lies in the forward/reverse clutch. It will eventually lessen and lessen, but will never go away. I would suggest you drive you truck some more, and then decide if you want to take out reverse. I still have my reverse installed and I like having it. The jerking at first acceleration is hardly noticable to me anymore....
