could be his throttle needs to be clean or his cable is a little sticky. or he has one hell of a good spring.

Thats how my GTS is, Me and my buddy juss readjusted the cable to make it more responsive because the pedal felt sticky (?)..... if it matters any :shrug:

I've seen this on some 5th gens. I would like to know the cause/solution even though neither of mine are like this.

on my gt-s one time the cable got really frayed and there was only one strand holding it. the frayed part would get jammed in the cable and the throttle would stay accelerated i almost hit someone too. so i turn into the first gas station didnt notice it was on a one way street till i saw all the headlights. fun times i tell you.

i tried rerouting the cable on the all trac like others have done here and it would end up being too stretched out i adjust it all the way out but the throttle stays slightly open so i put it back how it was.

i think the throttle pedals feel the same the clutch on the other hand world of a difference. as for brakes my stripped gt-s with stainless lines and ebc pads and no abs will stop a lot better than the stock alltrac.
