Cams across this throttle response controller for the F-type and wondered if anyone has ever heard about it or has any experience with it?

I gather that a throttle controller makes more sense for a turbo engine but still, is there much point in having extra control over the throttle response?

On this point, I only drive in dynamic mode and the throttle response is good not mind blowing fast but it's nice and progressive. I like to blip it to make gear changing smoother and it gets those revs up quickly enough. When in neutral though, it needs a bit more to get the revs going. I thought that it might benefit from a reset. Does anyone know how to reset it using the OBD port or through another combination or start up sequence?

Surely this is just an expensive gizmo to change the amount of pedal movement between closed and WOT, or am I missing something?
Perhaps if you are looking to somehow tune it other than the standard and sport modes there would be some value, but not something that feels of real benefit.

There's a sort-of discussion on throttle response on the US forum, though aimed at the manual gearbox models ....

Yeah, I've seen that last night which prompted me to look into this gizmo and ask here for feedback. Do you happen to know the procedure to reset the throttle adaptation?

All they do is change the rate of reaction of the electrical input. Seems like you would just be spending money on something that is the equivalent of just pushing on the throttle more 😂
