    Also I was thinking that because there's a side load on the cable, the spot where it passes thru the eye at the bracket may be internally roughed up and the cable possibly a little frayed

      But that’s what the spring is meant to take care of.

      Seeing that setup makes me wonder why you wouldn’t just run DBW and never have to worry about cable routing again.

        Kind of stupid to rip a skid over a blind hill with so many people around to catch it on camera...even with half that power not a good idea.

        Cunt will get reamed & now the rest of us will cop shit by karens
        an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

          BUT,

          Go back and look at the first pic i posted, about 1/4 of the shaft that holds the blade in is hanging down still attached to the throttle cable. Cable didn't come off, the shaft has snapped so no return spring unless that cheap shit china TB is a double return. Technically blade could jam open due to the snapped shaft, tps reads still at wot and feeds in the fuel as its on the other end of the shaft and away she goes.
          The change of revs in the skid and at not even a second of limiter bash at the impact or tip over makes me think otherwise.

            That's a good point. There isn't any scratches on the bellcrank to suggest that it hit the ground during the rollover and snapped off that way....and the inlet tubing around the TB is still mint. If the thing just snapped off (which the misaligned cable would contribute to) then that would make sense

              Isn't this the appeal for people like this? What's the point of going to a remote area in the middle of the night if there's no one there to see you / it's only fun if it's dangerous / racetracks are for pussies etc?

                    So it'll be impounded now for hoon law, then after 30 days he will have to pay cash to fix it 'cos no insurance will cover it?

                      This is about 15 mins from my place. It was during a school formal. Always one wanker to ruin it for the rest.

                      We had our formal the other month. 99% of drivers were fine, one spastic decided to light it up and sent a very nice old Monaro (or something similar IDK) backwards through a road sign. Car was borrowed.

                        Throttle jammed open? Poor form blaming it on that. If only it wasn't wide open on a street like that in the first place?

                          Prolly Type 1 offence so 90 days, then the fines which would be careless driving so thats 5k then there is the towing fee's and impound fee's.

                            Dimi and Babs are on the money. Something has broken looking at those photos. The TPS would only be doing transient enrichment, so even it went into an error state the EFI would still be supporting the RPM and load requirements.

                            (and yes, it was a dumb place to drop a skid, but ive done my share of dumb things too)

                              Also my compliments to the throttle cable bracket guy, close bro only missed the alignment by an inch.

                              Completely agree. The sound doesn't match at all for a jammed throttle.

                              The two different hose clamps triggers my OCD.

                                And don't forget the costs of the bollards, the damage to the restaurant fixtures to be replaced and/or repaired plus the chance of civil action from those hurt, and maybe also up for their medical costs as well if the TAC, being a Vic registered car, wipe their hands of it.

                                That's one expensive burnout.....
