Eh? Every car in the world makes more power at WOT than it does at 90%. ???(Original post by Nuffles)
I'm assuming the OP is neither driving an auto, or an engine with a 4 barrel carb I've never owned a car other than the Range Rover where it was worth pushing the throttle in further than needed.
Is it bad to push to accelerator flat to the floor? Watch

Haha maybe if you've got a torquey V8 under the bonnet, but I can tell you now that if you're in a crappy 1l Yaris and you put your foot to the floor doing 2000rpm in fifth you won't get going any faster than just pushing the throttle until it stops having an affect. Sometimes I put the throttle flat to the floor just to see but it never makes it any faster.
It's the difference between slowing down and maintaining speed up hills...
