i bet yours is semi-auto transmission, the only way to solve your problem is change the transmission to manual gear box and your problem will go away. :D

oh by the way try change the transmission fluid first


there is no trans fluid on any smt spyders its gear oil 75RW three qts. change that then if it continues change your air filter, and clean the intake throttle area because it may have carbon build up...i know this because i just went through this problem my car runs great now
