There is a wide open throttle switch, but it gets activated just then -
wide open.  It triggers an open-loop enriched mode in the EFI.  This is 
typical of many EFI's, including that used on the Audi.

The extra heft at 80% is probably just the way the linkage and return springs
in the accelerator are set up.
