    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So yesterday I stumbled upon a weird behavior of my '05 gt. I was reversing from the driveway, and as there was quite a traffic, I was moving in reverse with just the clutch and a little bit of gas. As I approached the road, I pressed the clutch all the way down as well as the brake pedal. And...
