    Resetting throttle/tranny adaptations?

    The previous owner of my new to me 17 V10+ drove it like my grandmother for 7k miles. Zero launches and brake pads were at 90%. The car felt very relaxed and it feels faster every day i drive it but i want to reset the adaptations and reteach the car who its daddy is, without having to be a complete hooligan (which might happen anyway, its easy in this car).
    Is there a hand held device that can do this that doesnt require a PC (i have mac) and wont break the bank?
    Much appreciated

    Ross tech supposedly does something like that. I have one for sale but I haven’t tried it.

    So the ecu fuel trim can be reset by force clearing the DTC with an obd reader. The car feels MUCH more responsive. Only problem is it also resets the emissions readiness and I doubt i will drive relaxed enough for the correct drive cycle to happen quickly. I called Ross tech, their device can also do it, as well as reset the throttle body AND force the emissions readiness with the engine off! I need to get me one of those and a crappy pc.
