    bingo. overall i do like the SB, particularly how it improves the initial 25% of pedal travel-to-throttle response, but as the curve above illustrates, once you mash the thing to the floor, it hits that flat "dead zone" that is still annoying. and the customization settings would be fun to play with for us car nerds.

    I only had a chance to drive with it for about 10 minutes today but it does exactly what I hoped it would.

    It does very little at the beginning of the pedal travel so it doesn't feel too sensitive during parking or stop and go traffic, it really doesn't feel much different than without. Press the pedal a little farther though and the engine springs to life much faster and gives the feel of much better throttle response. The best part though is that you can fine tune the two settings so that the amplification curve becomes linear where YOU normally drive. For me that was SPORT+ with -2 adjustment.

    I'll post this picture again and use it to try and explain how it feels



    Imagine that the red line is what the speed of my pedal movement would look like WITHOUT the pedalbox. I push the pedal down slowly as I'm releasing the clutch, then after fully releasing the clutch pedal I'm pushing it down faster as I'm accelerating up to my driving speed, than slowly modulating the pedal as needed.

    Now, with the pedalbox, I'm pushing the pedal down linearly and the pedalbox is tweaking the output signal to mimic the red curve.

    What you end up with is a completely natural feeling accelerator pedal with no excess sensitivity during parking and stop and go traffic, no dead travel at the end, and an engine that seems much more responsive.
