I love your videos and i like you attitude and loud personality. After watching a lot of your videos i think its time for me to ask a question.
I have driven some newer cars like the Toyota Yaris 1.4 Turbo Diesel and most of them have Electronic Throttle Control. I love the new technology but in most cars it is setup with a huge Throttle Curve making the can unresponsive to throttle to the point that i am afraid to cross an intersection of overtake a slow driver because i don't have immediate response from the throttle. I understand that is is not a problem of the new technology but just a setup from a manufacturer to make the cars safer and more economical.
I am an RC car and plane hobbyist and of course the models have Electronic Throttle Control for decades now but in that case i was able to set up the Throttle Curve to my liking. In the real world newer cars don't allow you to disable the Throttle Curve which is good for soccer mums and grannies but in reality ruins the response of the car for everybody else.
Can you please let us know if the Electronic Throttle Control can be adjusted to what i like to call "sports mode" probably via the OBDII port? Alternatively can you recommend new reliable cars ( that are available in Europe too ) that either have cable driven throttle or have drive by wire systems that don't enforce a Throttle Curve.
Since it highly unlikely to find brand new car with cable throttle It would also be interesting to know what are the most recent cars that don't adopt the drive by wire technology.
If you can make a video on this i would be more than happy.
Thank you for your time Chris
