    Gas pedal - extra travel at the end?

    Hi guys

    Noticed last night that if you floor the gas pedal, and then press down a bit harder at the end, I have about another 10% more travel in the pedal.

    Is this just me and something is getting stuck or is this a standard RS6 thing?

    I've not looked at the C5 setup, however most cars have a spring between the pedal linkage, and the throttle cable or throttle sensor (depending on it its cable or electronic throttle)

    Its basically there so that if you properly mash your foot into the floor, the spring takes up the extra movement, rather than having to make the sensor or throttle linkage strong enough to withstand your leg trying to yank the cable/sensor past the end of the travel.
