What does the PedalMonster do?
PedalMonster is the first OBD-II connected throttle sensitivity controller for gas and diesel vehicles. In basic terms, it changes the pedal position in relation to the throttle to get rid of that mushy feel. In many of today’s cars and trucks, auto manufacturers have implemented what’s known as “throttle enrichment delay.” This is a fancy term for sponge pedal. Why would manufacturers want your car or truck to have a pedal that feels like your stepping on a wet sponge? If manufacturers gave you the immediate response you wanted, you’d likely use more fuel launching at green lights and squirting around town. In theory, by making the pedal input slower to react, it saves fuel. But the byproduct is a boring driving experience.

PedalMonster®Throttle Sensitivity Booster, Standalone
Improve throttle response, adjustable and safe
Bring your vehicle to life with PedalMonster. City, Sport, Track with 30 levels of control. The only OBD-II connected throttle sensitivity controller. Adjustable low-speed trim, reverse safety, and ActiveSafety circuitry included! PedalMonster stacks with any flash or inline tuner!!! Not just Banks.
What Is It?
PedalMonster is the first OBD-II connected throttle sensitivity controller for gas and diesel vehicles. Controlled via Banks iDash or mobile app, PedalMonster is the only module of its kind to offer safety features like ActiveSafety®, Reverse Safety and Adjustable Low-Speed Trim.
- City, Sport, and Track modes, each with 10 sensitivity levels
- OBD-II connected
- ActiveSafety failsafe circuitry with Health Monitoring
- Reverse safety returns pedal to stock in reverse gear
- Adjustable Low-Speed Trim controls how fast sensitivity is added at slow speeds
- Powered by +12V via OBD, not low-overhead pedal circuit
- Controlled by iDash DataMonster, iDash SuperGauge and mobile app
- PedalMonster stacks with any flash or inline tuner!!! Not just Banks
- View PedalMonster's activity in real-time via iDash and mobile app
- Simple plug-and-play installation
- Warranty friendly. Does not leave footprint after removal.
City, Sport and Track, each with 10 levels of refinement, allows you to tune out "dead spots" found in many pedals, making your throttle more responsive. PedalMonster can be adjusted on-the-fly through the iDash and phone application. Simply take your foot off the pedal momentarily to adjust the mode or sensitivity level.
10 levels of increased sensitivity in the lower pedal travel range with boosted resolution in the upper travel range for finer control on the track. More power is delivered sooner making it ideal for performance and track use.
10 levels of improved sensitivity throughout for a more responsive driving experience. Gives your vehicle a sportier feel with a focus on the mid- to high-level throttle. More power is delivered in the mid-range ideal for when you want more get-up-and-go.
10 levels mapped for a linear characteristic throughout the pedal travel. Gives a more responsive feeling while retaining a smooth driving experience. Power is focused more on the higher range to prevent unintentional quick acceleration around town, ideal for city driving.
PedalMonster is controlled via iDash DataMonster, iDash SuperGauge, and PedalMonster mobile app (iOS and Android). View PedalMonster's activity in real-time. When used with iDash, monitor vital engine and transmission OBD-II data, control PedalMonster, Derringer tuner, and other Banks modules.
PedalMonster is the ONLY throttle sensitivity controller connected via the vehicle's OBD-II port (onboard diagnostics) reading vehicle data, allowing for unmatched control and safety. OBD-II data makes the following possible:
PedalMonster is the ONLY throttle sensitivity device with ActiveSafety®. In the event of an internal or external circuit failure, the system seamlessly returns the pedal to stock. When all other devices fail, they leave the vehicle inoperable leading to dangerous situations. Imagine losing power while passing on a two-lane road while heading into oncoming traffic.
All modern throttle pedals communicate with the vehicle's ECM via two distinct signals (APP1 and APP2). This is done for safety. PedalMonster's Health Monitoring constantly checks for signal linearity between these two signals and monitors input and output values. We monitor the health of PedalMonster 100 times a second. If the health monitoring system reveals any malfunction, the PedalMonster instantly bypasses itself, sets a device diagnostic code, and returns you to stock power.
PedalMonster's internal circuitry is powered by the reliable +12 volt OBD-II connector. Competitive devices draw current directly from the low-overhead +5 volt throttle pedal circuit, often rendering the vehicle inoperable leading to dangerous situations.
PedalMonster returns the vehicle to stock throttle response when in reverse gear (availability varies by vehicle).
Adjustable Low-Speed Trim
This feature allows you to adjust the rate at which PedalMonster adds sensitivity at speeds under 10 mph. This helps to avoid spinning the tires in low speed turns or on slippery surfaces. While level 0 turns off low-speed trim, levels 2-5 increasingly minimize throttle boosting from 0-5 mph. By 10 mph PedalMonster will boost the throttle normally. This adjustment helps with low-speed drivability during parking lot maneuvering, icy roads, etc, while allowing you to use more an aggressive mode and level at the same time. For example, if you like Track mode but don't want to slip while driving slowly on icy roads, simply set the low-speed trim to Level 5.
You can also select transmission type: Automatic (default) or Manual. The Manual transmission setting does less boosting in the 0-20% pedal travel range (when compared to Automatic). This improves drivability during clutch engagement.
