    On my F-150, the throttle system averages throttle input and sends that out to the stepper motor that controls the throttle plates. The sense from driving it was a lack of feedback. At one point I did for a moment have the truck accelerating when I slammed on the brakes before the ECU backed off the gas. I didn't think the issue was dangerous, just stupid. My solution was to install a tuner and reduce the dwell on the throttle position to zero. The result is the truck drives normal with good feedback.
