Default dw 5000 pedal type questions

what is the main difference between the 5000 turbo and the 5000 accelerator chain drive double pedals? i have looked at the pics of both and they both look the same. i know that one is off set and the other is center but how does that change the feels of the 2 pedals?
any other things that anybody can tell me about these 2 pedals would be great as im looking to buy one of the 2 very soon.
thanks all!

The difference is the cam.

The Turbo cam has the hole where the shaft goes through is centered

The Accelerator whole is offset so the speed increases as the stroke progresses.


I Have played Accelerators for 20+ years and I love them.

Here is a graphic I did in photoshop about a year ago

The Accelerator is the offset sprocket design which gives the feel more like the old nylon strap pedals.
