So those would be the first and primary things I would seek a fix for before anything else.

Not sure how to correct the spacing though, I wouldn't want add-on tabs (wings) for the throttle and there is no practical, safe way I know of to move the brake/clutch pedal closer to the throttle. Maybe a redesigned pedal assembly for someone crazy enough to take on that liability bottomless pit.

I've heard as well from a guy who drives Corvettes for a living that there is latency, a lag, in the new Corvette's throttle application. Sounds like the same thing here. I have no idea if it's built in mechanically or electronically, but I'd want a fix.

Aftermarket/GM hi-po parts dept- please take note. I'd be a buyer right away. I have way more interest to fix this put in a "big cam"
IMO there are 2 things that help remove that with out a tune, one is a T/B that was ported by there right person, and IMO the best part is a vararam T/B spacer
