Default MS3 knock module updates

I'm interested in the knock module over on MSextra.com and am wondering if anyone here has updates on how it's working? I that there were a few people from here messing with it.

We are getting ready to send them out for production, so expect them to hit the shelves in maybe 2 months tops.

Nice! I'm so excited. Is the kit going to include the knock sensor as well? If not, what type should we be looking into? How effective has it been for helping tune spark? Is diy going to provide any support for initial settings, knock window, etc.

I've been using it but not really doing much other than playing with injector trims.

you can use a stock miata knock sensor.

Nice, finally. James did never answer the question about the new batch of knockboards at msextra, though the question came up a couple of times.

We'd been working with him behind the scenes to arrange a production run.

The 1.1 firmware base map will include default settings, but nothing model specific.

there's really not much to tutor.

install it, wire up the sensor, and with the default settings, you'll see noise on it immediately.

then you pick how aggressive you want retard to occur.

I think its important that the MS braintrust understand how much troglodytes like myself appreaciate your work. I and my other troglodytic friends are going to use this knock-technology to troll any and everyone with AEM. Right now, I can't troll them and that hurts my soul. Your solution will make me whole again.

I just read on the MSEXTRA forum that new arrival is August. I wish I could pre-order!

We hope to have ordered enough that they won't sell out, so we are not doing pre orders.

We have 100 boards that we anticipate being ready for sale next week. We had to order special header pins for them that should be coming in any day, and I need to finish testing on them, as I need to make sure that the final production version works as well as our prototypes did. Testing is on me, and it means causing a car to det on the dyno. I'm juggling this with 4 or 5 other projects, but will get to it next week.

I anticipate the Real Time Clock to be ready for sale next week as well.

Yeah I really want one and don't want to miss out due to demand.
