++ for innovation. Where did you get the pneumatic cylinder? What kind of car is it going in?

You'll have a lot of vacuum (heavy pedal) at idle, and little vacuum (light pedal) at wide throttle, low RPM (where I try to drive). You might find that you have less control and smoothness during the transition between the two. Maybe the extra feedback in your foot is worth the loss of sensitivity.

This would probably be great on a car with a slushbox, where you can't drive at wide throttle, low RPM anyway. Added bonus: You'd feel it every time the transmission shifts, and you'd become better at controlling those shifts.

I'm curious to hear how this thing drives.
