Still enjoying mine....

Got it installed this evening I'll give it a road test tomorrow. The unit isn't the hard part of the install. Mounting and running the wires took longer. Reaching the firewall from the footwell isn't easy, glad I have long arms.
Looking forward to your impressions?????
I was done after Murder After Midnight 's first post. He bought it, installed it and really likes the results. What more needed to be said and why must his impressions be scientifically justified and/or proven? Good enough for me...
One final thought. If I was considering this I would want to ride in a Slingshot equipped with one to form my own opinion. I'm not really interested in a bunch of voltage/idle/lag time/blah/blah numbers. Doesn't mean anything to me. The OP's description does.
yep that simple and thanks. I even offered wolf a ride(a member that is close to me)....not sure what else could be done? Some people will never be happy??
I’m still not understanding why in the video it increased the rpm when he turned the knob up and the guy said I’m not touching the pedal..
And if a tune can do that and increase the gas mileage for $100....why not.
me either. But that was not my experience. If it's was nothing but rpm valoume gague i would return it
Our PedalMax just got delivered, going to go get some baseline information from it, but will not have time to really test it until next week.
please post some early impressions.....i would like to hear them...
I personally don't think the Sling would benefit much from it. My Ram has bad lag in the beginning of pressing the pedal. It would help in that situation, which is the only reason I did any research into pedal signal amplifiers.
Wolf this is a big upgrade
I’m still not removing the for sale sign on my slightly used bridge.
I have been wrong only once in my lifetime......it started on the day I was born and hasn't ended yet.
The idle max is not the same as a tune.
If I set my idle speed to 10,000 rpms standing still....what happens when I pop the clutch and mash the gas pedal?
Wow look at the increase in performance...as I burn tire down the block.
I just tested this at the max 100 setting the idle stayed at the orginal stock point(in 1st and neutral). With my foot off the gas it picks up the same 5 miles mph speed without any gas applied. The biggest difference is when smah the gas it builds rpm's much much faster than stock, and that's what makes this such a great upgrade.
Really suprised at the responses in this thread.
Data, data, data!
All the "butt dyno" claims fail to impress. Let's see the following (with video evidence, please!) for both stock Slingshot and Pedlemax mod. In the SAME vehicle with a neutral third-party driver:
1. 0-60, 5 runs averaged (Launch performance)
2. 35-75, 5 runs averaged (Passing performance)
3. 0-100, 5 runs averaged (Full power band performance)
4. Quarter mile time, 5 runs averaged
Time to back your claims with some numbers. Admittedly, this is a bit of work, but if your gadget performs as well as you say it does, you have a winner and your sales will go up (deservedly so!)
If you can't back this up I'm just gonna have to file Pedalmax under "Snake Oil" along with the Veg-O-Matic and the Pocket Fisherman.
you will be getting your wish soon very soon
I'm hoping to get one installed when at Slingshots in the Rockies.
DO IT! this is prolly the best mod that can be done. At less than 300 dollars this is really almost unbelieveable.....
I'm gonna post the 0-60 before and after soon.
Review: SIMPLY AMAZING
This thing is AMAZING. Pulls much harder in each gear, the 0-60 and 0 -100 runs are much much faster. 5th gear is much more usable. This is on a otherwise bone stock slingshot.
THIS MAKES THE SLINGSHOT FINALLY PEFORM HOW IT SHOULD!
Any questions just ask.
hehehe - To be totally honest I love talking about these things and understanding them and how they work, but I am actually very pleased with the performance of my Slingshot as it is, If I could find more ways to improve ride and cornering I might be interested in spending that hard earned money you mention, but as far as performance mods go thats pretty much it,
I just ordered mine and will be posting a big compreshensive review.
Trying to decide what to go with.
I have about a grand of "fun money".
My Sling is the Blue/Yellow
DDM Works shocks
ZZP Stage 1 (header, exhaust, cold ait intake, tune)
Leaning towards the ZZP package.
My Slingshot SL already has:
Upgraded stereo - Head Unit, SSV loop pods, two 10" subs, amp
Baker ripper wings
LED strip lighting
Powder Coated rims, other rim matching colors all over.
it might be the pedal max, i just ordered one i will let you know next week, been hearing some amazing claims, i will report back.
If we are talking about getting off the line first I can see where an upgrade like this might be important. reaction time both human and in this case electronic is very important in things like drag racing where every 100th of a second counts
having said this I am not sure if having the throttle body more sensitive to less pedal movement is something that would be beneficial in day do day driving or in other forms of racing - it seems to me that having the throttle overly sensitive could actually cause problems and harm performance on a race track going in to and out of corners and having just the right amount of throttle when upshifting and downshifting
good point but remember it can always be adjusted on the fly the improvement ranges from 1-100max
