Pictures of throttle cable slack?

Is this a lot of slack or am I wrong?

No not yet because I want to make sure the cable is in good condition before I do the mod. I'm pretty sure it's stretched lol.

And just making sure, that it the throttle cable right? Lol. But yeah, it doesn't look right to me either. But my mechanic is the best in my area (Hampton Roads, VA)... he used to own all sorts of auto shops all that. I take my car to him whenever something is wrong with it that I can't fix because he does it really cheap for me, since he's a family friend. He did a $600 for $168, the parts being almost $120. Works on all sorts of companies trucks too, some only trust him.

He told me that it looks fine. I don't know how he could possibly be missing this. Blows my mind lol. No one seems to think it has a slack, but just look at it! haha
