Inside Derive

Derive is the easiest way for people to customize the software of their car, connecting them to a smarter, more highly optimized vehicle.


The Derive Story

Derive was created when SCT, a custom performance software company specializing in the American muscle car merged with Bully Dog, the leader in performance technology for trucks, powersports and big rigs.

We combined the track-proven technology into a powerful custom software platform that allows not only car enthusiasts but now corporations and passenger drivers to realize the benefits. Derive puts in the hands of all drivers the controls to customize the speed, torque, fuel savings and safety of their vehicle, allowing them to derive their own way forward.
