Hi guys,
The accelerator pedal in my truck is super sensitive and my throttle/acceleration fluctuates with every little bump I hit. Is there any way of tighteneing this up to make it less sensitive

Any help would be great

Dave

How long has it been this way, they are quite sensitive and very easy to get yourself into a bunny hopping rythm, you need to have your heale hard on the floor & when in really rough stuff have the side of your foot against the body panel to help you hold a steady position.

You could try thick sponge or foam between the throttle and the floor, I have noticed when my rubber floor mat (which sits ontop of my carpet floor mat) rides up between the throttle stop and the throttle that it has a dampening effect so I would assume that sponge or foam would have the same effect.

:cheers:

Recently let my Grandson have his first drive in mine, damn it was like sitting on the back of a kangaroo, he had a lot of difficulty getting used to it and he had just driven his fathers vehicle up from Brisy. Hadn't really thought about the sensitivity till then.

so glad it is not only me experiencing this issues, especially on the rough stuff.

to help i did purchase a square piece of rubber that sits under the accelerator, works great.

but it still hops a little when coming off/going on to turbo on the rocks, rough stuff.
