[DML] Re: Minor Annoyance: Throttle lag prob.



You don't mention what gear you are in at these speeds.  The lower 
the gear, the more responsive the car will probably be to the 
throttle, foot coming on OR off.  At least, mine seems that way.  For 
a smoother ride for your passenger, perhaps you want to be in one 
higher gear than you are in? Maybe let in the clutch and gently 
downshift? I suspect, as others have alluded, that it's in your 
technique.

Practice with an egg in the passenger seat. :)
