    Default Foot-down and acceleration

    This may be a stupid question but to get best acceleration from constant speed is it best to simply put (1) your 'foot to the metal' or (2) a more gentle initial approach before flooring it. I ask out of interest and because I wonder if flooring it simply produces a air/petrol inbalance - I've noticed that my car sometimes feels more lively when I start to come off the accelerator at the end of an acceleration phase. Anyone else experienced this?

    I know what you're saying matey. I've experienced this in a couple of previous cars, but I've always put it down to fuelling.

    i think its better to "'foot to the metal'" as u say because your gas pedal is connected to ECU with wire not with cable, and ECU will know better then you when to add more fuel/whatever IMHO

    I would say on initial acceleration gently blend the throttle and increase it too full throttle, but I have to or I'll be buying new tyres every 3months
