Throttle controllers

I saw some more expensive sprint booster types of throttle managers for as much as 350 USD, with bluetooth connection to cell phone, where you can adjust the settings from cell.

Also saw some non BT enabled, still fully adjustable but on the wired in console that comes with it (tuck it in behind carpet after setting), for as little as 70USD.
Getting tempted to just put in the cheaper one, as i do not foresee myself using BT and cell phone to keep changing settings.
Anyone can comment on this train of thought? Looking for some opinions, etc.

Wasn’t the original Sprint Boosterjust a plug in module with no bells and whistles? I would prefer this as well

They all appear to be plug ins. Sprint booster about 340Usd.
Other product aI saw was about 70 bucks. Thinking about it.
Get 9 performance settings to increase sensitivity, and 9 economh settings to decrease sensitivity, plus neutral, or factory mode.

Yeah but I don’t want those settings, all I want is “true” response of my foot, like a real throttle cable is there any that do that?

Panamera is ekectronic throttle. But if you install throttle commander it will remove ghe lag that mfg adds for ease of use of the car, so your feel should be very direct

Im very pleased with my sprint booster with the wired controller. Dont need bluetooth. Mine has 2 modes, sport and race with 9 levels on both. Running race at 9 is a bit unruly, I usually drive in sport about 6 or 7. I feel it was well worth the investment. I dont know about the $70 one but for that short $$ why not try it but if its race mode 9 all the time that might be a bit annoying. I will be interested hearing your result.

Its not the $ but desire to find out. That one has no BT, but has high perf and economy mode.
High perf mode has 9 levels of increasing aggresive steps. Economy mode has 9 modes of decreasing aggression modes (slower). Plus a bypass mode to have oem setting.
Just curious to see if an th one bought one. I may get one if no one has. Desvice is simple, remaps pedal to add or take away steps of throttle with each setting.
