It is a known fact that most cars suffer from throttle lag, particularly newer cars with drive by wire systems that inefficiently control the signal from the cars throttle to the ECU. Pedal torq eliminates throttle lag by taking the signal from the pedal, adjusting it to an efficient signal setting and sending it on to the cars ECU.
Pedal torq features three driving modes: Sport, Sport+ and Eco, each mode has its own range of customised settings, allowing drivers to finely tune the vehicles accelerator signal to suit personal driving preferences. Pedal torque is used to describe the speed at which a vehicles’ engine responds to pressure on the accelerator pedal, any deficiencies in response are emphasised under hard acceleration, as shown in the graph. Pedal torq removes these deficiencies improving throttle response by up to 65%.
How it works:
When pressure is applied to the accelerator pedal a sensor measures how much pressure has been applied and sends a signal to a control module which in turn sends a signal to the engine to open the throttle the corresponding amount. The pedal torq module sits between the sensor and the control module, intercepting the signal and altering it in order to shorten and improve the response time. Pedal torq reduces the amount of pedal pressure required to achieve ‘throttle wide open’ allowing drivers to access the engines full potential.
