    GOPedal common settings

    Alright, so here is another question; those of you that use a Madness GOPedal, what is your common setting? I just got mine, and even in the wet Portland Oregon weather so far, I am using sport plus with a plus 1 setting. LURV the new snappy response. Think I'll go up to plus 3 soon, but have to ask; is this a little psycho? I don't have a problem rolling into the throttle thus far in an easy manner, and heel/toe is a lot better.
    Anyone else running a full Monty (ie sport plus +3 curve) on this? If so, any issues?

    I have the MM Power Pedal from 500 Madness. That unit has three setting choices:
    0 - stock
    1 - performance
    2 - race

    I have the remote set on #2 and never change it. I'm making an assumption that this unit is similar to the Madness Go Pedal.

    When I discovered that I could drive faster with the ESC fully off, that's become the norm. When the roads are wet, I'll partially engage ESC.

    I am full Monty 24/7. Overall I have found the go-pedal to be great and have a great effect. However, after all of my mods I have found that it still works great but there isn't much of a difference when I am in Sport mode versus non-Sport mode. Without my Magnaflow set up it seemed like there was much more of a difference. Also, I always shut it off when I need to have a valet park my car.

    You're speaking of the ECU piggyback mod, the GoPedal plugs into the top of the gas pedal and mods the signal allowing for much greater/faster input with less throttle applied. I have had mine maxed with Sport + and 3 greens...so all out and it makes for a pretty wild ride, so touchy and easy to spin the wheels and I have dropped MPG's playing with it more at these settings.

    For anyone that doesn't know of it or the settings being discussed... http://madnessgopedal.com/index.html

    Allright; i am feeling okay about this! I switched over to maximum (red on top +3 curve) today, and it is super happy fun time. WAY easy to backfire and scare the neighbors, especially when a little cold (My 500T has a muffler delete, and just that was backfire inducing; now it is hard to leave the neighborhood w/ out cracking it). I honestly think that just "red on top" should have been the factory preset, and "red +1 or 2" should be sport. But, I suppose the fear of "Audi in swimming pool" or "Camry with bunched up floor mat" litigation precluded this from happening. So, thanks madness 500!
    Those of you with a turbo of some sort (excluding Tweak and his lead dipped foot); how is the gas mileage if you are running at least red on top? Zonker? I can't imagine you are running eco mode. . .
    Thanks!

    Yellow +3 for me. I use my car for work so I find the highest setting too aggressive for the daily grind.
