How does Thrust Monkey work?
Thrust Monkey modifies the acceleration curve on electronic throttle controlled 4WDs. It enables you to choose how your 4WD responds to your accelerator. From more aggressive response and acceleration - to more sensitive and delicate control - and 21 variations in between.
Chart represents the Thrust Monkey modes (throttle maps) versus a stock factory throttle program and a cable throttle.
- OFF-ROAD MODE (7 sensitivity settings) ... Extra-sensitive control for low-traction surfaces and low-range rock-crawling. Doubles as economy mode for long-distance cruising.
- TOWING MODE (7 intensity settings) ... Instant response for decisive, safer overtaking and merging.
- SPORTS MODE (7 intensity settings) ... High-performance response for grunt-on-demand.
Precise throttle control for agile off-road & delicate low range driving.
Instant response for decisive, safer manoeuvres and overtaking.
Adjustable to 21 throttle curves for total control - 3 main modes x 7 fine curve adjustments per mode - plus factory curve.

More Accessible Power
Thrust Monkey does not give your engine more power, but it makes what power you have more available and easier to control. In reality that really feels and acts like more more power and improves your driving experience.
Why Is Thrust Monkey Better Than Cheap Chinese Competitors?
- The cheap throttle controllers made in China and the low quality shows with things like exposed wiring and bling. The Legendex Thrust Monkey is designed in Australia and built in Germany and the high quality is evident.
- The cheap Chinese throttle controllers that we have seen all contain the same throttle map regardless of the vehicle which means inconsistent results. They do have models for different vehicles - but only because the connectors are different - the map programming is all the same. And even their connectors are cheap. Thrust Monkey has vehicle-specific maps custom programmed in Australia for each vehicle.
- The cheap Chinese controllers and connectors are not waterproof. Spill a drink or get water in your footwell while crossing a stream and you risk going into limp-mode or even an engine shutdown from a shorted controller. Not fun in a river crossing. The Thrust Monkey circuit board is resin dipped making the controller is completely waterproof and uses only OEM connectors for complete waterproofing at the accellorator as well.
