Drive-by-wire systems explained: What is throttle lag and how can it be overcome?

What exactly is a Drive-by-wire throttle system (also known as fly-by-wire) and why does it create lag?

Well first we have to take you back, to the good old days of throttle cables and carburettors. In the old days, the gas pedal was directly connected to the engine's throttle plate by a cable, and any lack of response from the engine could be attributed to a couple of things. Either the cable has stretched enough to create slack and, consequently, a delay in pedal response, or the engine was out of tune which meant it was not making as much power as it should've been. Easy fix, by a new throttle cable for $20 and get your carby tuned. Nowadays though, unfortunately it's not that simple.

Let's look at how modern electronic throttles work.
