Vroooom, vroooom

Installed a new accelerator pedal assembly in my baby today. Gawd, what a difference. Before, my scanner showed (at most) 80% throttle, even after a reset. Not to mention the ever present limp mode if you floored it at the wrong time.

Now all is right with the world. I'm getting 100% throttle when needed. She loves to fly!! Even nicer is the confidence of knowing that if I punch it, it's going to go!

In the last week or so I've put on 4 new tires, a new intercooler pump and now the pedal assembly. Wasn't cheap, but it was worth every penny.
