On another note, you guys are finally coming around to selectable acceleration response modes. Remember Granny to Grand Prix?. Just add another pin read to an external pot and you have a dynamic selectable sliding scale for accelerator response. The knob on the pot can go from 1 to 10 (or 1 to eleven if you are a fan of Spinal Tap), or Granny to Grand Prix.

Way to go Paul!!!!!!!!
