yeah. i know what you mean. Sunday i was finally staying in my seat when i was going! the first few times i'd be sloshing around in my seat, trying with all my might to hit the pedals right. i definantly need a good seatbelt. and tires, and suspension and a chip, and exhaust and new turbo, and and and and and. heh.
