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 WD Throttle Controller.
New to throttle controllers? Perhaps on a budget?
The Windbooster WD is our entry-level throttle controller, designed to give you a taste of our throttle controllers - on a budget!
With the WD controller, we have dialled it back and focused on the essentials by only housing our Performance modes alongside the following features.
- Four (4) modes to choose from – Normal, P1, P2 and P3.
- Ten (10) levels of throttle adjustability in P1, P2 and P3.
- Blacked-out acrylic front panel.
- Bar styled blue LED display.
- Injected ABS frame with aluminium increase & decrease and mode 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.
P1, P2 and P3
We had one thing on our minds when developing these modes – Speed, we are Speed.
P1, P2 and P3, also referred to as 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 pedals parameters to introduce an enhanced throttle curve - resulting in a sharper and more reactive throttle response the higher the setting.
These three modes have ten levels of responsiveness, so you can find the perfect setting to suit your driving style and conditions.
P1 - otherwise known as 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.
P2 - otherwise known as 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!
P3 - otherwise known as 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.
