throttle pedal sensitivity/response

Hi All,

I read somewhere on the interwed about with electronic throttles and such like that there is a control module which translates the throttle movements into an instruction to the ECU...and that this control module or whatever often has a dampening effect in order to make the ride smoother and maybe more economical...

so question is, is this something which can be tweaked/tuned to make it slightly more on the ball between me doing something and the ecu doing something about it? or is this in effect what the sport button does along with its changing the gearchange points on the qtronic?

Cheers

A little more detail on the car would be useful, gather you have a q-tonic gearbox, with what engine?!
Easiest would be to get a remap
