If you search David Wheaton in the the FB group he ran it down in Baja with @EXO
, had it installed by @svc
. Here's his main post:
"Alright boys and girls, time for me to give an unsolicited review of the Pedal Commander. Yes, I'm a customer of SVC Offroad and they are who let me try it out in Baja, but no monies came my way.
First off, the Pedal Commander is a small electronic device that plugs in between our fly by wire accelerator pedal and the ECU. 100% plug and play, installs in minutes and includes a Velcro'd bracket that attaches to the dash.
Pretty neat so far, but what does it do?
Basically, you now have 25 different throttle maps. You have one for Eco/Valet where the throttle is extremely slow to respond and won't go anywhere near WOT.
Now for the part we care about. The tree main modes are City, Sport, and Sport+. Each of these can be made less sensitive by 4 settings and more sensitive by 4 settings. Hence 24 settings from the City mode -4 to the Sport+ +4.
City is great around town, very responsive while being quite drive able without snapping your passengers head back. Once we go to Offroad Mode, this is where the Pedal Commander truly shines. We all know how sluggish the throttle feels once that Offroad button is pushed. Now it's all magically back in your control.
This past weekend down in Baja, I spent most of my time in Sport mode sharpened to +2. Now I had the throttle response the truck normally has but with all the benefits of he Offroad Mode.
In the whoops, I had throttle response to stay on top without creating more speed. I could modulate through corners and transfer weight to the rear immediately when something would sneak up on us and not once was there a single light on the dash.
Pretty magical little box, all factory locking connectors and everything you need to wake up Offroad Mode. Best $300 you could ever spend on your Rqptor."
