The Pedal Commander is a little device that connects to your car's computer. It lets you adjust how sensitive your gas pedal is. So, if you want your car to go faster when you press the gas, you can change the setting with the Pedal Commander to make it more responsive. It's like customizing your car to feel just the way you like it.
If you are looking to improve your overall driving enjoyment or reduce your eco-footprint, you need a Pedal Commander. Most newer vehicles are manufactured with Electronic Throttle Control (Drive By Wire). This means your acceleration is no longer powered with the old school throttle cable that gave you a linear relationship between your foot and the throttle body, but now everything is powered by electronics and your car’s computer (ECU). The electronic throttle does not provide the same performance as it creates a lag from your initial accelerator push.
Pedal Commander is the ultimate solution. It connects in-line with the "Engine Control Unit," right at the Pedal Position Sensors, and it's like giving your car's brain a little boost. It takes the data from the pedal sensors, supercharges it, and sends it directly to the ECU. This clever process skips a few checks that the engine computer normally makes, so your engine can respond faster.
What does that mean for you? It means the delay from your gas pedal is gone, and your engine reacts instantly. Your gas pedal becomes more sensitive, giving you that thrilling and more responsive driving experience. It's like a turbocharger for your throttle!
