Sick of the delay you get when pushing your accelerator pedal?
HIKE IT has a solution to get rid of that pedal lag!
The HIKE IT X9 Throttle Controller is the most advanced controller on the market and designed specifically To “wake up” your car by reducing throttle lag and improving the response time from your vehicle’s “fly by wire” accelerator. Best of all, the X9 is Plug & Play!
What is the HIKE IT X9?
The HIKE IT X9 is a ‘bite-size’ throttle response controller that removes delays in your electronic accelerator pedal. In short, the X9 will get a faster response from your engine and therefore you’ll get a modified acceleration depending on the X9 setting you select.
When you push your car’s pedal it shouldn’t feel like your stomping a sponge; you should get immediate response from your engine which is why we developed the HIKE IT X9.
In addition to Automatic Mode Selection which will intelligently learn your driving style and the current situation and adapt the mode to suit, the X9 has 4 different control modes: Eco/4x4, Cruise, Sport/Tow, and the Highest Performance mode, HIKE IT mode. Each of the 4 modes has 36 different adjustable levels available for selection.
The X9 has a clever PCB module which updates the points of reference for a vehicles throttle mapping. Throttle Lag is added by manufacturers for a number of reasons including fuel economy. The HIKE IT X9 maintains the standard parameters of your vehicle; however, introduces a sharper throttle curve (or smoother when in 5x4 Eco mode) and reduces the “dead zone” in your cars accelerator pedal.
HIKE IT's Auto IQ Control Mode lets the driver set and forget while the X9 learns the driver's behaviour and selects the mode from the best of 40 mode settings based on the current driving situation. Generally, fly-by-wire pedal accelerator systems have two sensors that measure both how hard and far the pedal; the X9 tweaks these for a more enjoyable, safer and fuel saving drive.
HIKE IT’s Sport/Tow mode (with 9 level settings) is a fun way to get around without the adrenalin boost of HIKE IT mode. It’s perfect when towing anything and will adjust perfectly to the application at hand. After Auto IQ Mode, Sport/Tow mode is the most favoured.
Economy Mode (E) Economy mode has 9 settings that reduce the response from the pedal which will improve fuel economy and with a dampened response it can be particularly handy in situations such as driving off road, towing, beach driving etc.
The X9 Smart Pedal introduces an additional 2 driving modes over the competition with 40 driver levels.
The heart of the X9 is the dual 32BIT Chipset sourced from industry experts which leaves it’s 16BIT competition in the dust.
In Auto Mode the X9 Smart Pedal will study the way you drive then select the mode and tune setting to suit your driving style and current driving situation.
If no setting has been changed for 5 seconds just push the MODE button and jump straight into HIKE IT 9.
Entering the Anti-Theft function will lock the car's throttle and will not accelerate at idle until unlocked.
The X9 has a clever Ambient Light Sensor that will adjust the LCD brightness automatically depending on the current light situation.
The most widely used doesn’t always mean the best. Which is true in the instance of throttle controllers. When selecting a throttle controller it’s important that performance and reliability are put ahead of brand name.
“ The HIKE IT transformed my Ranger and was the best $250 I ever spent on the car. I highly recommend the HIKE IT for anyone looking to give their car a boost without throwing away heaps on a chip. ”
- Greg, Port Macquarie, NSW, Australia
“ I had the opportunity to try the HIKE IT throttle controller & couldn't believe the difference it made to my car. As the one I tried was a demo one I have taken it back out & can't wait to get one put in permanently ”
- Rod, Lake Cathie, NSW, Australia
“ After being disappointed with my Coast to Coast pedal box I thought I would give this unit a try for our 2015 Isuzu Mu-x. What a difference it made to its driveability. Has setting for auto or manual gearbox which for me made the auto gear changes much smoother. ”
- Paul, Rowville, VIC, Australia
“ WOW. My Ranger improved so much with DPCHIP I didn't think it could get much better.Greg and Matt set up the demo unit for me to try.Having tried all different combinations fort mode 1-2 as that was a nicer response and pulled off from a standing start so much better. ”

Introducing the most advanced Pedal Controller on the market. The HIKE IT X9 is a simple yet effective throttle response modification system designed to improve your driving experience. Fitting between the accelerator pedal and the ECU (the cars brain), on modern 'drive-by-wire' vehicles, the HIKE IT Pedal Controller maximises the signal to give the smoothest and most effective response while driving. Suited to both diesel and petrol vehicles the HIKE IT X9 makes the vehicle more driveable in many ways including:
When overtaking it is essential to access all the engines power as efficiently as possible. The enhanced throttle response from the X9 improves that efficiency and therefore the speed and safety of an overtaking manoeuvre.
A better throttle response from HIKE IT plays a major part in the overall driving experience as it gives the driver superior, customised control over the acceleration of their vehicle.
Prior to entering a corner, the vehicles brakes are applied and power is reduced. When the accelerator is applied through that corner or after the corner, the vehicle needs to respond smoothly and quickly in order to maintain the correct road speed. A better throttle response improves the power delivery and helps the car accelerate from the corner more effectively.
