They're all a waste of money. Foot on the brake and a little more throttle, exactly the same response.
IMO.

Pedal Monster has Safety built in , does not throw the Pedal Codes / Limp Mode, Does not Draw Current from the Throttle Connection of 5Volt but 12 Volt,
Has ODBII Code reader in it and has a Valet Mode , and Reverse By Pass... Had mine over a Year now love it. Banks also has proven Name no comparison.
You can also get Accessories for it such as the iDASH, and a Y Harness Cable. You Can also do more tweaks with the settings to refine the Response Curve
which then also Adjust the Transmission Shift Points.

Not really and you do not need to hold a brake and gas and power brake it, it reduces pedal lag big time.
Also have one installed in the GMC Sierra 2500 EXT Cab when Pulling a Trailer and needing to get on Interstate , or through a busy intersection it helps.

I had a pedal commander on my RT and it definitely improved throttle response. I haven't installed it on my Hellcat because it seems superfluous, like fitting a great white with sharpened titanium teeth. :rolleyes:

Had the PC on my 2012 R/T classic. It was fun in the beginning, but after a couple of months I couldn't wait to take it off, I saw no value in it. Once you step on the accelerator after the 1/100 of a second increased response it add nothing. I guess if you live at the drag strip it may be a necessity, but at the traffic light, I didn't get it

After four years of debating, I just pulled the trigger on a Pedal Monster. Thanks to everyone, past and present, who helped me make the educated choice on the Forumz (not saying Pedal Commander is bad!! :)) Now, the wait for the mail haha. Another month and it's the Eibach Pro kit, camber kit, rear sway bar and A8 fluid change. Woohoo!

The original, the Sprint Booster, and I got it for the valet mode. It is awesome!

Parking brake on. Car in neutral. Hold at ~2k RPM. Then switch between street, sport, and track. Notice the RPMs jump going to performance modes. Pretty much a built-in feature to give more throttle electronically for less pedal push.

Well, I installed the Banks Pedal Monster today on my '18 5.7. Really, really nice. Haven't messed a ton with the settings, but I'm really liking it in city mode at almost the highest level (two dashes down from the top) Night and day difference with throttle response. Install took all of 20 minutes.

I think money would be better spent on a tune from HemiFever. True HP gain and I think they can adjust the pedal response also.
