Default I have this odd problem.......

Actually car related.

When I'm driving the 93, I've noticed that every time the boost gauge pegs, it pulls the gas pedal all the way to the floor, and takes my foot with it.

But when the boost goes down, the gas pedal pushes my foot back up.

I have similar problem. Whenever I put my car in OD, the gas pedal goes down to the floor, and won't come back up. My boot also seems to stick to the gas pedal. It is reppelled by the brake pedal.
