    GoPedal, Power Pedal or Sprint Booster?

    Not counting the costs, any benefits/drawbacks? Preference? Who has which and how do you like it?



    Thanks,
    Adam

    Adam,

    I've been driving the TMC Power Pedal for about 1,000 miles on my 2012 Abarth and it has really made the car much more responsive, especially in the non-Sport mode. The power comes on much more smoothly with no perceivable turbo lag that was there before installing the Power Pedal.

    I have the Power Pedal and love it. Its a short shifter for your gas pedal.

    (Small point, its made by MM not TMC )

    I have MM Power Pedal. It was a little too twitchy for me for a daily driver. Will use for autocross and track days for sure. Still waiting for a good ECU tune so we can all kiss these bypass boxes goodbye for good.

    I've got the Power Pedal installed on my car. I went with it as a mate for my previously-installed MM ECU box. Both use the same remote.

    If a throttle box was going to be my only mod, I'd have probably gone with the Sprint Booster. It works well, costs less and includes the wired controller with visual feedback (LEDs) so you know what setting you're on.

    Once you put them all on the highest setting, there's no difference performance wise (only form factor and level of resolution of the settings). At the 'race' or 'top' settings, all these do is send the most maximized mathematically-possible (constrained by physics in the form of a logarithmic curve straight line) pedal position to the ECU. I have the Sprint Booster. Helps a lot around town off the line.

    I have a sprint booster paired with tmc box. Keep the booster at red setting and box at 7. Car runs very smooth no issues. Booster very easy to install and comes with wired switch which I removed afterva few months as I don't use it.

    I have the SprintBooster. I like the visual feedback of which setting you are in. I use the first setting (green) for daily driving and red for at the track.
    With this box I rarely use Sport mode in daily driving.

    Hi all,

    In the spirit of saving money, and seeing the various reviews I ended up going with the Sprint Booster - looking forward to throwing it in and seeing the change

    Now, what to do next. (I'm still terrified of an ECU box haah)

    Adam
