The S-drive throttle control system offers several applications in addition to the anti-theft, eco/valet and sport modes.
What does Eco mode do?
Eco/Valet mode reduces the throttle sensitivity and opening, so your vehicle will accelerate slower and have a lower top speed. There are 7 levels of economy/valet (ec1-ec7), ec1 being the least economical with highest top speed and ec7 being the valet mode with very acceleration and top speed.
what does the anti-theft mode do?
Anti-theft mode deactivates your accelerator pedal to immobilize your vehicle. Even with the keys in the ignition and the engine running, the vehicle will not move.There are 7 levels of economy/valet (ec1-ec7), ec1 being the least economical with highest top speed and ec7 being the valet mode with very acceleration and top speed.
what does sport mode do?
This is where the car comes to life with sp1 being the least responsive setting and sp7 being the most responsive. With a touch of a button you can change the sensitivity of the accelerator pedal to dramatically increase the engine’s responsiveness and open up the throttle past the factory settings from 65% - 70% to 100%
CAN ECO/VALET MODE BE USED FOR CAR SHARING PROGRAM?
Yes.Set ECO mode to reduce throttle response and top speed before you loan out your car. It will discourage risky behaviors and reduce the likelihood of vehicle abuse and damage.
CAN S-DRIVE BENEFIT STUDENT OR TEENAGE DRIVERS?
Yes. By reducing the throttle sensitivity and top speed, inexperienced drivers are able to better control the vehicle
can s-drive be applied to off road driving?
Yes. Eco Mode enables you to modify the throttle modulation suitable for off road driving. The various settings increase throttle pedal travel while reducing response and acceleration
my car has a modified ecu. can i still use s-drive?
Yes. S-drive can be used in vehicles with modified or remapped engine control systems (ECU) since the controller is not increasing power but remapping the throttle response parameters
does s-drive work with automatic or manual transmissions?
S-drive is compatible with automatic/ dual clutch and manual transmissions, gas or diesel vehicles
does s-drive need to be PROFESSIONALLY installed?
No. Installation is a simple, step by step process that takes under 20 minutes. However, if you want to have it installed professionally, please contact us and we will provide a recommended installer in your area
what's included with the s-drive?
The system includes a control unit with display and settings buttons, throttle controller and vehicle specific wiring loom for a simple plug and play installation
will my settings be saved after i switch off the vehicle?
Yes. Unlike similar systems on the market, S-Drive has an embedded memory chip which will save your last setting
