Throttle modification

What is the throttle modification that takes out the slack from the pedal?

Put your seat back as far as it can go, lay down and get in a position to look up on your gas pedal, now when your looking at the back of it look where the throttle cable is connected to the pedal, you want to pull the pedal all the way, and use either a zip tie, or gear/hose clamp to be placed right at the end of the throttle cable right near the pedal, therefor taking out any slack...really once you get under there you will know exactly what to do, it really is so simple unless your a bit big, than may require removing the drivers seat, but once you see it down there, it's common sense.

Most get a nylon spacer for like $.05 and put it in there with a small clamp.
