    Hey guys and gals,

    I did some reading over at silveradosierra.com and they do the "paint stick mod"... and the Pedal Commander product for throttle response enhancements.

    From what I can see, the throttle pedals are different on the trucks, because on my Tahoe there is on way to use the "paint stick mod".


    Is anyone out there using one of these to get a more responsive throttle pedal?

    Scott

    Had to google ‘paint stick mod’

    I know a few here have used The pedal commander with good results. Lets see if the chime in with their thoughts.

    The pedal commander is just a mind trick. https://www.krawlzone.tv/how-do-pedal-commanders-work/

    It is the same thing as putting your foot into the pedal more. Save the money and just use your foot a little harder as its exactly the same thing. If you give the throttle save 25% the commander just tells the computer its at say 28% instead of 25. If you had just put your foot down a bit more it would have been the same thing.

    So best advice save the cash and just be a touch more lead footed. Do not fall for the placebo effect.

    Either the ITM (Italian Throttle Mod) which is moving the seat closer just a hair or if you have adjustable pedals move them closer just a smidge

    I didn't think all models had adjustable pedals.

    @iamdub named it after me when I posted moving pedals a tiny bit foward after bottoming them out gives the truck more pedal....more of a dig at me...

    Ah, yes- the legendary Italian Throttle Mod! Makes the Italian tune-up that much easier.
