ah yes! it's there alright, i'm not sure if the carpet was in the way because i tried the accelerator and just felt that detente for the first time. i was pretty sure i stepped hard on it last night but i didn't feel the click. darn, i can't drive it yet because i won't have my temp license until tuesday. thanks a heap!
ps. i guess i could put my other plates on it if i can't stand the suspense.
