A leap into the unknown
This was where it all began. 11 test boards were ordered to get my feet wet and see how this whole design stuff really works.
The REM Alpha v1 was designed to see what vehicles they were compatible with and featured some very basic software as I slowly learned the ins and outs of the renix system and coding in general. As it turns out, all 4.0L’s were compatible so that was a relief.
Shout-out to all the Alpha testers out there that saw the potential in this product and were willing to buy a highly experimental product that might have not even worked but gave it a shot anyway. It was due to their trust and extremely valuable feedback that I was able to grow confidence in the design and see what needed work for the next stage.
