Congrats on the car, Matt!

In reference to HSA, I asked in the "HSA Disable Method?" thread whether or not those that are having issues with the system are simply accustomed to a different driving style, where they bring the clutch up to the bite point before giving gas as apposed to doing simultaneously. Keep us posted, but I feel this is the issue. On other cars, a similar HSA system will not disengage until it detects the driver has applied the accelerator.
