Rick,

EuroCarFan totally hooked me up with a copy of the SprintBooster.

We're trying to track it down in USPS land. I think it's at the local Post Office now waiting for me to pick it up.

I'll get it in time for the weekend and we can do some testing.

Regards,

Darren

Automobiles in the 21st century have replaced the more conventional throttle cable technology for an ECM (Electronic Control Module) that translates pedal travel into electronic signals in order to provide power to the wheels.
The ECT system (Electronic Throttle Control) – also known as drive-by-wire – has the unfortunate downside of delayed throttle response and subdued acceleration, creating problems in certain circumstances such as up-hill starts, quick gearchanges, overtaking, etc.

The Sprint Booster aims to overcome this throttle response delay for ECT-equipped vehicles, providing crisp on-tap acceleration at the driverʼs disposal.

It is a device that improves acceleration by continuously measuring and converting the digital signal provided by the ECT’s potentiometer, and providing the ECM with a new and altered signal.

My own feeling is that it will need to be disabled when in P500S mode and there is probably a way to do that. P500S is a little "twitchy" already. Looking forward to Darren's assessment.

You better pick it up quick or they will send it back to the sender. It's been there since the 12th!! :eek:oohhh: haha

I love the product but I'm sure everyone would love a second opinion and even a third and fourth if you guys are able to meet up and try it out on your own cars.

I've been talking to PartsExporter and he's finished a group buy web page for us but I told him we want to get some additional feedback first.

Hurry up guys!!

The seller I'm working with has it on eBay for $300 shipped. That's how much I got mine for. But the group buy he's proposing is $250 shipped if we have 10 or more buyers.

I will set start up the group buy thread shortly on here as well as E60.net.
