Default Engine & Sequential Settings set to Fixed Timing

Over the last few weeks I have been working on getting the idle dip problems sorted and I have got it virtually solved, including the power idle dip and everything is running well. As I am going away I thought I check a few things over and one of them was the base timing. When I came to check the "Fixed Timing or Table" in the Engine & Sequential Settings it was set to Fixed Timing, this must have been set before I had it tuned on a dyno. I reset it to "Use Table" and went out for a drive, The idle dip returned worse then it has ever been before and the data log readings where all over the place, so I switch back to Fix timing and every thing was back to normal. The big question is it OK to run the car using fix timing and will it cause any problems? I just have not got the time to start from scratch with the tuning or the patience to do it at this moment in time.

Any advice would be most welcome?

Fixed timing is for setting initial timing angle. Table timing is for driving. Figure it out if you want to drive a car that does not run like crap.

rofl? did you honestly tune your car to a static ignition timing?

it's going to run like it has 50hp.
