What is throttle lag?
Most vehicles utilize a ‘drive-by-wire’ control system for the accelerator. This means that when pressure is applied to the accelerator pedal, it is measured by a sensor which sends the signal to the engine, opening the throttle. The time taken to achieve this is the lag you feel when you accelerate.
Throttle lag fixed
The Pedal Torq sits between the sensor and the ECU, intercepting the signal to shorten and improve the response time. The Pedal Torq reduces the amount of pedal pressure required to achieve ‘wide open throttle’, allowing the driver to access the engine’s full potential.
Real life scenario
You’re first in the que at the traffic lights and you accelerate when you see the green light but nothing happens for a second or two, this delayed throttle response is what is referred to as throttle lag. A Torqit Pedal Torq removes this lag, so the second you accelerate you are beginning to gain momentum.
