Hey guys.

Iv'e got factory cruise control on my EL XR8, and it works great.
If im on a freeway with cruise control enabled, and depress the clutch, the car revs like crazy!

Shouldnt it disable cruise control when the clutch is pressed?!

Cheers.

It should disengage with the brake pedal.

Yeah there is meant to be a clutch switch to disable the clutch when you depress the pedal.
On auto models, there is a Link that is added to bypass this switch, so as the cruise control works.....

Sounds like someone added cruise control, but forgot to add the clutch switch.
