I've got you beat John,
My accel. cable decided to come loose at the exit of turn 7 at Blackhawk
farms this weekend, twice. Eric (STEADIRIC) had the pleasure of the
experience once, I had it the second time. It then decided to leave on
turn 3, again.
After convincing the other members that my car was in the grass because I
pulled off the course voluntarily, rather than ending up there by error,
I tried this:
remove the little hinge piece that attaches the cable to the pedal.
Don't laugh, I then duct-taped (it's good to 100mph, I'm told) and then
used a zip tie(wire tie) to wrap the whole mess together. It survived
the rest of the track use/abuse, and then made the 500 mile trip home
without incidence. German engineers have this knack for putting in extra
parts that aren't needed, A/C, throttle pedal pieces, etc.
