I really have no idea what a madness go pedal is. I assume this is AutoCorrect on your phone speaking

Is your accelerator pedal broken?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you floor the pedal completely, then this thing doesn't change a thing. This little box manipulates the pedal signal. If you press the pedal 25%, then your car's ECU might think you press it to 50% for example. So you fool yourself in part throttle situations. You are naive if you expect it to turn 100% throttle into 200% throttle...

Re: Go pedal for Australian 500s

If you can't move you foot fast enough, it will help. Otherwise it's a placebo. The delay is programed into the ECU, it's not in the pedal. Frankly as much as I agree with AGH and maxi, tuning the throttle pedal response to one's liking isn't really a bad idea, but the price is crazy for what they are. You could build your own for $100 max (most of which would be the connectors and case) which means they cost about $20 mass produced in China. Nice mark up

Re: Go pedal for Australian 500s

hi thanks its that when i put my foot down say at a light it lags then power comes. i thought this go pedal will fix it. ive talked to some people with the 1.4 n/a 500 and they say it give it a little kick in the ass. just trying to fix the problem people say get it retuned but that will void my warranty and ive also searched for a alternative because its close to 500aud to get it over here including shipping.
