What are Throttle Controllers?
Windbooster Throttle Controllers are a product that helps alleviate the lag associated with electronic drive-by-wire throttle technology in modern vehicles. They also allow users to tune their cars throttle ramp-up response to better suit their driving style and driving conditions.
And, it is as simple as Plug & Play!
How do they work?
Our controllers operate by inputting new reference, mapping, points into your cars throttle pedal assembly - which is also where they are plugged into or installed.
Once installed, the screen will display our data as modes & values and, from there, lets you quickly and easily modify your throttle ramp-up response for either a sharper or damper reaction - depending on what you select!
The TB Throttle Controller.
Simplicity with a little flair can go a long way.
The Windbooster TB throttle controller is simply that and helps keep the guesswork to a minimum by only including two modes, our Performance and Economy modes.
With its gold design and numbered display for smoother and simpler operation, the TB also houses the following features.
- Three (3) modes to choose from – Normal, Economy and Performance.
- Ten (10) levels of throttle adjustability in Economy and Performance.
- Gold-accented, blacked-out, acrylic front panel.
- Injected ABS frame with aluminium mode and setting buttons.
Are you wondering what our modes do? Let’s take a look!
This mode is non-adjustable and reverts the vehicle to its factory-set response, lame and tame.
Normal mode is handy when having your vehicle is to be serviced; to help mechanics with a more natural feel of your car.
We have all heard the phrase slow & steady wins the race, and economy mode does precisely that.
Economy mode dampens your throttle to gain you more control over your cars throttles ramp-up response, reducing wheelspin & traction-loss and increases your manoeuvrability & control.
Examples of where a dampened response is excellent are wet weather driving conditions, technical driving, and reversing trailers, caravans or boats - not to mention the potential it has also shown around fuel-efficiency.
The economy mode also has ten levels of sensitivity to filter through, so you can find a range that suits your driving style and driving conditions.
Ever been on a merry-go-round and noticed how slow they go? Well, this mode isn’t like that.
Which, we hope you like your car more than a merry-go-round even though they are secretively cool too.
Performance mode helps you get more from your car whilst still working within factory parameters - for added peace of mind.
Achieved by sharpening your throttle pedal parameters to introduce an enhanced throttle curve - the result is a sharper and more reactive throttle response the higher the setting.
Performance mode also has ten levels of sensitivity, much like the Economy mode, so that you can find a setting that best reflects your driving.
Levels 0-4 are fantastic for daily drives and driving around town, whilst levels 5-9 are for racing and spirited driving scenarios.
