I can't get more than 2.5k revs

I bought a VS from a bloke at work - nothing fancy - it was only a thousand bucks - it's just something to get me around until I can get a more serious car sorted out.

One problem which is really bugging me is that the accelerator pedal won't go right to the floor. You can push as hard as you can but it just stops about halfway between fully out and the floor, and as a result of this I can't get the engine to rev over 2.5 thousand revs in 3rd or 4th gear.

If you're at a standstill in first, put your foot down and launch, it'll hit about 3 thousand revs, then changes gear, second will hit about 2.75 thousand, and then after that it will drop to 2/2.5 thousand and will just sit there.

Going up a hill sucks! Doing 100km/h's on the flat and then hitting a slight accent - the engine just doesn't rev at all and you drop back to about 80km/h's.

What is the problem here?

Hope you can help,

Ed
