MightyMouse It will still learn it. You push a button get in the car push the pedal all the way down and after a certain amount of time it reads the voltage and saves it. After that whenever it reads that voltage again it activates the solenoids and bam instant power.

FocusFreak87 What if your pedal doesnt go all the way to the floor?? (Aftermarket pedals??)

SquillyB ok, to clarify for every one.

When you install a TPS (throttle position senor) switch it detects the amount of voltage going through the out put of the pedal sensor to the ecu to tell everything else what to do ie, shifting pressures, fuel regulators, etc. So you driving, just chill. A V8 stang rolls on you at the light and rev's ya. Go time. Two options here
a- green light, you floor it then manually throw the switch to activate the nitrous oxide and woosh your out.
b- you turn the switch on now, then light goes green. You take off and feather the pedal over about a two second time span to get into higher rpms, then stomp it to the floor, whoosh your gone.

The traction control switch is the best of both worlds. It won't activate unless you stomp it, but it takes a second or two for the rpm's to get to where ever you set it, which you control when it starts to spray and when it stops, but NO MATTER WHAT IT WILL NOT SPRAY DURING A SHIFT!!

BOOSTA lol, he me too kinda, afraid it might blow up. Now is there a switch that turns the nitrous off? Cuz i dont want it to go on each time i got the pedal at WOT!

SquillyB akmer, I went from a 17.5 car to a low 15's car with out the traction control switch installed, just using the TPS (throttle position sensor) and my foot. The ZEX rep said another .5 seconds should be reachable with the traction control switch in.

Boosta, I have a modified version of the stealth intake, and a custom exhaust. With the window switch in I am spraying first gear now as I was NOT before. When going down the track with just the TPS switch installed I would launch, count to two and spray, a heela wheels spin would occur all the way into the middle of second gear, then it would grab and I'm gone!! Now with the TCS switch in I have set it to spray in every gear, from 3100 rpm to 7100 rpm. I have yet to go back to the track with the new switch in but I can tell you I have minimal wheel spin now and that car is fo sho faster than last track day which my best run was a 14.91, my top speed so far in the 1/4 has been 99 mph! Almost a 100 but not quite. With the window switch you can pick how many times the unit has to pass the cut off rpm point before it engages, essentially you can skip gears if you want. Like if you had a turbo and only wanted N2O to spray in the very begining for a brief second to eliminate the "lag" you could easily do that.

ShadowStrike haha.. Billy needs to do another nitrous sticky.

And I have yet another question. You probably don't want the nitrous in first gear, but if you have the window switch set to go at 3k rpms, how would you get it to not spray?. Only way I can think of is not having it at WOT.. but that would obviously mean your not pushing your engine as hard as you could. Is there any other way?

And BOOSTA, I believe he has intake/exhaust and answer your second question, yes, as long as you have it at WOT.

BOOSTA sorry for the million questions but lets say you set it at 3000 rpms to kick in and 6500 to end in first gear, would it kick back in at 3000 rpms in second gear as well?

BOOSTA Squilly is your car stock besides the Nitrous?
