What is the best Throttle Controller?
We might be biased but after testing the EliteDrive Throttle Master on multiple vehicles, on and off-road our team of mechanics believes we've found the best throttle controller on the market. And here's why!
The EliteDrive Throttle Master has 9 modes and over 50 adjustable throttle settings, it is easy to install and easy to program. This throttle controller eliminates throttle lag instantly and has a setting for every driving situation.
What does a throttle controller do?
Essentially a throttle controller reduces the throttle lag in response between the pedal to the engine. In a typical car when you push down on the pedal, the throttle body will only open at a certain speed based on the manufacturer's specifications. A throttle controller connects to your throttle pedal and intercepts the original signal and advances this in a way that removes the initial throttle delay.

Does a throttle controller give you more power?
In situations where you may ask for more throttle, the vehicle ECU quite often decides how much more power you receive. A throttle controller works to override this according to the settings on the device.
The EliteDrive Throttle Master attaches to your throttle pedal and intercepts the original signal and advances this in a way that removes the initial throttle delay. With smart innovative technology the Throttle Master mapping, the system adjusts the signal so you can turn the throttle up or down to suit your driving conditions.

When driving offroad, the biggest issue can be too much power or torque delivered at the wrong time. In 4x4 Mode you’ll find there’s a lot more control over the delivery of every hp, and you’ll avoid surging when driving over bumpy ground. This ultimate mode will give you greater control and will help eliminate wheel spin, by providing the optimum pedal pressure.
Driving in town with lots of stop/start traffic causes us to use more fuel than necessary when accelerating away from the lights. For greater fuel economy use the Economy Mode and the device will manage throttle response so you’ll be able to more carefully meter the fuel use and use less fuel as a result. There are 10 levels of adjustment in Economy Mode to suit your driving the best.
Sports and Sports + Modes
Standard Sport Mode will increase throttle response, with faster acceleration and provide maximum speed. This mode eliminates throttle delay while seeking a balance between sporty and regular response. The Sports+ Mode will increase throttle response even more. This throttle input is suitable for highway, uphill, and track driving.
Lock Anti Theft Mode
Add another layer of protection to your vehicle with our new Throttle Lock Mode that you set with your own personal Pin Code. The vehicle’s pedal will not operate when the throttle is locked, even with the engine running
One of our exclusive modes is TOW Mode. This setting delivers unparalleled levels of torque delivery when you need it while driving with a heavy load. We developed this unique mode to make towing easier and ultimately safer. Set and Forget.
