Hi Stefan, welcome to the Forum. I'm still loving the tech on my 2015 XLT, so I imagine that the current models, particularly the Wildtrak would be sensational. Sweet rides to us all. 8-)

Offroad, I've had a Pedal Torq in for almost 5 years (PX1 & PX2) and have never had any variations in revs - as you describe. I don't question that you have had some issues, but stuffed if I know the cause. Whose throttle booster do you have installed?
