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!!
