Talking Vitesse Motorsports Throttle Response Controllers are IN STOCK @ Apex!!! $179.99



Vitesse Motorsports Throttle Response Controller (Throttle Controller): $179.99

Are you tired of that seemingly long delay between the time your foot smashes the pedal and the engine responding with that growl? Well now you can have control over that response time with the Vitesse Motorsports throttle Controller.


Explanation of Throttle Response


Throttle response is how fast it takes from the time you mash the accelerator pedal to the time the engine RPM rises and how fast it rises. Throttle response is all about the time delay in the control system which alters the air pressure in the inlet manifold. It's only the time delay between moving the driver's right foot and changing the amount of air available at the inlets.


A more responsive 400hp engine will outrun (other than top speed) a less responsive yet more powerful 450hp engine on the track assuming driver skills and vehicle suspension tire adhesion etcetera being equal in the same car every time.


When you open the throttle it responds by sucking in more air and adding more fuel. The power increase is caused because your RPM's rise. The faster your RPM's rise the faster your car can reach max power.


Cold air intakes / ported throttle bodies / ported inatkes .... will all give some addittional maximum power but a Throttle Controller's biggest benefit is allowing the engine RPM to rise faster which translates to reaching maximum power sooner which means the car will be accelerating faster.


How the Throttle Controller will affect your driving:


Daily Driving or at the Race Track

Our Camaros are equipped with a drive-by-wire system and the throttle response is affected badly by this and as most of us feel a noticeable delay when quickly changing the position of the gas pedal. ( You will understand and feel this delay after you install your new Controller ). The Throttle response delay / Lag is an intentional design on the "Drive by Wire system and the reasons are:
  • Decreasing emissions
  • Not allowing the engine components to do anything harsh
  • Safety and drivability
  • Comfort
  • Fuel economy
Driving Pleasure:

Throttle response plays a major role in driving pleasure, as this gives the driver more control over the vehicle's acceleration or deceleration. If you have a very precise throttle response, it will not only make your driving maneuvers a lot more predictable but makes you feel more comfortable pushing the car's limits on corners.


On a race track, while entering a corner, the requested power output is reduced since the vehicle is coasting or braking. After passing the corner, the driver will suddenly request more power to accelerate back to normal speeds. Fast throttle response allows a vehicle to regain its speed quickly after cornering. Drifting requires very precise and instant throttle response on a rear-wheel drive car, one wants to increase torque on the rear wheels at a precise moment in a corner to make it turn the car more in the direction of the road ahead past the corner, and make it stop at a precise moment or the car will spin out of control. No matter what the maximum engine power is, if the throttle response is slow, you will not be able to have control or do this maneuver.

I ordered mine from Vitesse directly on the 11th and found out today that the cable they need is currently out of stock (probably will be in stock in a few days). I called up Victoria @ Apex and verified they do have them in stock. Put in an order with her and cancelled the original order with Vitesse.
