So i start up my spyder today and it all sounds fine, take of no problems, stop at a set of lights about 10mins from my house and i notice the idle goes down from the normal 800RPM ish, to about 500RPMish.

Go to take off from the set of lights and the accelerator pedal does nothing to the revs of the car at all untill it is about 50-70% down...once you get to the magic 70%ish it acts like normal, changing gears is possible, as long as it is warm, this is the only way it works...but if you go over 4,500RPM the car will then stall...

Cool the car down and start it again and it drives perfectly! Untill it warms up that is...Been looking for ages for a idea where to look, anyone think of anything?

Thanks in advance!

Australian so I assume it's an SMT...

Could also be the APS or a loose cable going to it. Have someone work the pedal while you look at the APS, if it doesn't move until you put your foot halway down ya may need to adjust the cable. If it moves I would check the vacuum lines going into the bottom of the throttle body before you start replacing parts, it's used for idling and if your idling is off it may be expecting the fuel from the idler and not getting it.
