Superchips vs Pedal Commander

If you describe yourself as a car enthusiast, you must have heard of various aftermarket auto parts. As you can guess, there is fierce competition between them in the auto market. One of the most competitive aftermarket parts is the throttle response controller in terms of reliability and efficiency. The reason is that the throttle response controller has no intervention in the engine operation and consequently adds no horsepower to your vehicle. Even though it is a reliable and efficient performance part to upgrade the performance and acceleration of your vehicle, you need to be careful while deciding which throttle response controller is worth buying. As you know, almost all manufacturers make the same claim about their own product: “our throttle response controller is the best on the market” only considering their own economic profits and interests. However, there are some important differences between throttle response controllers from different brands. As our product: Pedal Commander has the most functional and versatile features on the market, it is exposed to its rival companies’ unfair and false comments. You know that the tree that bears fruit will be stoned.

But, competition is good for us because we find the opportunity to introduce you to the high-quality technology of our product. Also, thanks to the competition, car enthusiasts around the world get a better throttle response controller: Pedal Commander.

Today, we will compare our product to one of our competitors, Superchips, in an honest way.

Pedal Commander vs. Superchips: What They Do?

If we make a superficial comparison, we can say that Pedal Commander and Superchips aim to have the same function; upgrade the performance and acceleration of your vehicle by improving the electronic throttle response system. Let’s look at the way they work. As you know, today’s cars use ETC or drive-by-wire systems. These electronic systems create a deliberate inherent delay and lag due to the processing, safety measures, and many other factors. Our product establishes a connection between your accelerator pedal and your car’s ECU. Once you press the accelerator pedal, the electronic signal coming from your press is amplified or reduced depending on the mod you select. In other words, Pedal Commander offers instant access to the engine’s power by reducing throttle response time.

Throttle controllers are designed to eliminate annoying throttle lags from your accelerator pedal. Compared to other aftermarket parts, these small devices have more reliable and practical specifications because they don’t intervene in the way the engine works. However, when it comes to different brands and manufacturers, you can come across products that vary in price, quality, and performance. For this reason, if you want to buy the best throttle response controller, you need to read our extensive comparison between Pedal Commander and Superchips.

  • Valet setting limits valet drivers with 50% or less throttle power.

Pedal Commander vs Superchips; One Pedal Commander to Beat Them All!

If you read this far, you can easily notice that Pedal Commander has more effective and versatile technology than Superchips. As Pedal Commander, our priority is to provide you with clear and consistent information about our product on our official website.

However, Superchips’ website is full of contradictory and insufficient information about the functions of its product. While it claims to have 5 modes on the homepage, it introduces 6 modes to you in the category of product settings. Just like you, we don't know which statement is correct. Let’s look at Superchips’ so-called 6 driving modes: Economy, Stock, Drive, Sport, Extreme, and 400% Wow mode. You need to know that Superchips’ 400% Wow mode is actually a setting option. If we give a piece of useful advice to Superchips’ manufacturers, it would be that giving customers false information looks funny and unreliable instead of being cool. Actually, Superchips’ manufacturers are aware of this situation because they admit that Superchips actually has 5 modes (Economy, Stock, Drive, Sport, and Extreme) on the homepage of their official website. As you can guess, this contradictory situation is completely for attracting customers’ attention. So, if Superchips’ manufacturers decide to present accurate information to their customers instead of pretending to have more functions, our fair criticisms will shed light on them.

Additionally, Pedal Commander is more reliable and versatile than Superchips in terms of its modes, settings, and functions. While Pedal Commander’s four different modes offer four unique features, Superchips’ Economy and Stock modes have almost similar functions including a gradual increase in acceleration. Therefore, if you look at the websites of these two brands, you will definitely access more detailed, clear, and reliable information about our product from its dimension to its features. 

As Pedal Commander, our priority is to present clear and accurate information to customers. Even though the subject is commerce, the only purpose cannot be to make a profit or money. For this reason, Pedal Commander attaches great importance to high quality, reliability, and customer satisfaction. So, we pay strict attention to keeping the information about Pedal Commander on our website up to date.
