Hey Pete, thanks for the info! I wondered if it was normal. That's good news. Maybe I won't mess with it then. Cause it does shut down quick enough, but not like all my other computer controlled cars.

What I did to fix the linkage was to replace the accelerater cushion. Here's a couple of threads on that:
Throttle Cable Snapped....on my '68 911L....i think

Next I unhooked the ball/socket connection at the transmission. Then I started the car (it was already at operating temp) and adjusted the idle speed to just under 1000 RPM.

Then, with the car still running I pulled on the part by the trans until the engine started to accel. So I adjusted the socket part to match this point. So now it's very easy to blip the throttle instead of pushing it down without anything happening.

Good Luck with your cluster rebuild.
