Anyone using a MSD E-Curve distributor?

My Bad! I did a search and found a couple here and a couple on other forums.

However, if anyone has been using one for any length of time and has some suggestions or feedback on how it's working out, I would appreciate a response.

E-Curve

I am using one and it's very cool. As everyone probably knows by now the instructions are terrible and make it difficult to understand, otherwise no problems from mine. Easy to change curve, put a MSD box on it, super conductor wires and it run's awesome. Set curve at 36 full advance x 20 degrees x 2,000 rpm.

I have one and I really like it. I have it for about 2 years with no problems. The insturctions do suck, but once it was explained to me by MSD it is not too bad. I needed total 36*, tech told me to set both switches to "0", set the total, then set it for the curve once the total has been set. Take the total, substract the initial you want and the remainer will the % curve that you need.

However, take a look at the Crane unit. The switches are on the outside (not under the cap). Seems easier if you want to switch curves. Don't have to remove the cap. IMO

But I do love my e-curve.
