What is the EVC Throttle Controller? How does it work?

The EVC Throttle Controller is a throttle response controller that gives you the power to adjust your vehicle's throttle response for any driving style or situation.

Ultimate9's EVC Throttle Controller is an award-winning performance accessory that has well and truly taken the Australian automotive accessory market by storm.

Fitting an EVC Throttle Controller to your vehicle enhances the way your vehicle performs and improves the responsiveness of your vehicle's engine. It does this by providing new points of reference for your vehicle's throttle mapping, modifying the torque request that is sent through to the throttle tables in your vehicle's ECU. By choosing the desired mode via the compact display which mounts on your dash you can select to actuate the throttle faster, reducing throttle lag and improving throttle response or dampen the throttle response depending on your situation.

The real benefit of the EVC is its adjustability. Ultimate9's EVC Throttle Controller range 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 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 the momentum.

Economy mode (E): Economy Mode operates at the other end of the scale to Ultimate Mode, the higher you go the more dampened your throttle response becomes. Economy Mode features 10 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 pedal. 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 (A.C): Automatic 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 meters 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.

Factory mode (- -): Factory mode replicates your factory throttle mapping and essentially turns the EVC off without the need to remove the unit completely. Factory Mode is great if you're sharing your vehicle with unfamiliar family members or friends who may be learning to drive or are unaware a throttle controller is fitted. 

EVC Throttle Controllers are a great risk-free modification that can be done at home in just 10 minutes! Select your vehicle to find a compatible controller model, or give the team at Ultimate9 a call with your questions.
