Throttle slack

Hey guys I've been reading the posts about throttle cable slack, from the inside when you lift up on the pedal there is a lotta slack maybe an inch or so but when it is pushed to the floor and Get under the hood there is maybe 1/4 inch left in the throttle plate to full open. So am I missing something ? If I take up the slack inside the car I'm thinking that'll be way to much under the hood and I'm taking the chance of snapping the cable. Whether I'm doing it for response or pedal height.

maybe it's just my imagination, but when I did the throttle pedal mod it made the car a little bit quicker accelerating. Almost like maybe it wasn't reaching WOT before.

That is basically what this mod was ment for, it says that possibly when you mash the petal to the floor before the mod you wouldn't hit wot, because you would have the carpeting and body in the way of full pedal power, so instead of messing with that they came up with this, whoever came up with it is a genious, people say this mid or that mod has the most bang for its buck, well this does, can't quite beat finally getting wot for 50 cents

Yea, I just used 10 cent hard clear tubing. I cut it straight down the center after I measured how long and had to be. Make sure the tubing is small enough so it won't slide off the end. After the install now when I smash my petal the wheels spin until I let off. But semi-bald tires can also contribute lol

Ok, I did it, I cut a 3/8 gas line an inch sliced it open, trimmed it down so it would close tighter and smaller in diameter, put 2 heavy zip ties on the line to keep it closed and yes the throttle response is immediate Its great !

See the previous owner of my car, 400 miles before he sold it, put new Firestone tires on it So the tires are too new, I can't Burned out, so I'm hoping the pedal mod, with full acceleration will let me spin them, it's embarrassing not being able to

Yeah no idea, car runs great, just takes off instead of spinning
My question is, if any of you have an automatic, on my shifter, there's a button, it turns my overdrive on and off
And when overdrive is off, my launch is so much quicker, when it's on launch is slower, and still no burn out
Which should I use o/d or not

Hold up, so don't put it in drive, just run it in first?
Then after burn out put back in drive?

Well when I turn my car on, the ABS light comes on, and my traction control off light comes on, because my ABS is messed up, so I never have traction control on at all anymore, can't turn on or off, it's off by default

That could be my problem, I always try it in drive, not first

See that seems sketchy that, because when I launch to do a high-speed, that means I will have to hit first, then shift into drive

To burn out in my automatic, I just put it I drive, or 1st. Hold the brake with my left foot and accelerate with my right. As so as I get good enough spin (around 3k rpms) let go of the brake and she starts moving and burning money, I mean tires

If you turn off OD and ABS then it won't hurt your brakes. If you leave it on then yeah it'll e time for new brakes very soon lol
