I understand your point of view, but don't share it.
The car has a "feature" which could get me in problems, and I have a fondness for vehicles like that, so I like it.

shoe size US14. i need to mash clutch if i want to mash the brake. :oops:
so most time end up accelerating a bit, and then have to cut power with clutch, then hit brake.
only solution i see so far, is to drive with my big toes.
