The EVC Throttle Controller is a throttle response controller that gives you the power to tune your vehicles throttle response for any driving style or situation.
The EVC does this by providing new points of reference for your vehicles throttle mapping, allowing you to either sharpen or dampen your vehicles throttle response.
The EVC features four driving modes to ensure you have the perfect throttle response at any given moment, and with the touch of a button you can change this response to whatever sensitivity you need.
Ultimate mode (U):
Ultimate mode is the EVC's performance mode, the higher you go the sharper your throttle response becomes. Featuring 10 different adjustability levels you can make the sharpness of your throttle as mild or as wild as you like. Ultimate mode is perfect for everyday driving, towing, overtaking as well as high speed off-roading such as driving through sand/bog holes where you need to keep up momentum.
Economy mode (E):
Economy mode is essentially the opposite of Ultimate mode, the higher you go the more dampened your throttle response becomes. Economy mode also features 10 adjustability levels so you can soften your throttle as much as you need. Economy mode is great for any low speed technical off-roading such as rock climbing or river crossings where you need a more controlled application of power to the wheels and you don't want to be jerking on the throttle every-time you hit the gas. Economy mode is also great for performance cars if the factory throttle response is too aggressive in certain situations, such as when driving on wet days.
Automatic Control mode (AC):
Automatic Control mode is a set-and-forget mode that monitors your current driving behaviour and delivers the most suitable throttle response in real time to match your driving style. For example If you are in heavy traffic and just moving up two to three metres at a time the EVC might hold you at Ultimate mode 0-1, then as you start to accelerate it will bump you up to Ultimate 2-3, however if you stick the boot in all of a sudden to overtake someone it will deliver Ultimate mode 7-8 to give you that extra kick of the mark. Automatic Control mode is especially handy in towing situations or long drives on varying terrain as it will compensate for the extra added weight/differing terrains.
Normal mode (--):
Normal mode replicates your factory throttle mapping and essentially turns the EVC off. Normal mode is great if someone is borrowing your car and isn't use to the EVC or if you wish to put your car back to stock and feel the difference the EVC makes.
