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 3S Throttle Controller.
The 3S controller is the most advanced in our line-up.
With state-of-the-art componentry, our latest throttle pedal mapping data, and a unique throttle gauge comparative display - its no wonder it is our most advanced controller.
Comparative display, what is that? It is a feature that will show you the difference between the factory throttle response and our controllers selected-response.
Pretty neat, huh!
Couple that, our latest mapping data, componentry, and following features and your experience will be as smooth and seamless as possible.
- Six (6) modes to choose from – Normal, Economy, Sport, Sport+, Race & i-Auto.
- Ten (10) levels of throttle adjustability in Economy, Sport, Sport+ and Race.
- Comparative display – left gauge factory and right gauge device response.
- Light sensitive auto-dimming OLED display.
- Blacked-out front panel.
- Lightning® connector for easy screen removal.
- Brushed steel housing with aluminium mode and setting buttons.
Are you wondering what our modes do? Let’s take a look!
This mode is an intelligent mode that recognises or identifies your pedals input on the fly, automatically adjusting itself for the best-increased response with the data it receives - bypassing the need to choose different modes manually.
It truly is set and forget!
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.
Sport, Sport+ and Race
Forget about intelligence and going slower. Let’s talk about performance - where the rubber meets the road!
Sport, Sport+ and Race mode help you get more from your car whilst still working within factory parameters - for added peace of mind. These modes achieve this by sharpening your throttle pedal parameters to introduce an enhanced throttle curve - resulting in a sharper and more reactive throttle response the higher the setting.
They each also have ten levels of sensitivity, much like the Economy mode, so that you can find a setting that best reflects your driving.
Sport mode is excellent for daily driving or perhaps driving around town. Removing throttle input lag and only slightly increasing throttle response throughout its ten levels of sensitivity.
Sport+ mode introduces a medium where all you needed was just that little sharper reaction for taking off or overtaking. We personally enjoy this mode when going for a more spirited drive or perhaps even a stroll through the mountains - for those winding roads!
Disclaimer: Buckle up!
Race mode has nothing besides performance driving and track or race events in mind. P3 will produce the fastest and most reactive throttle response to help get you into your cars optimal power ranger as fast as possible.
If you are not smiling already, you will now.
