accelerator stop ?

under my gas pedal theres a screw in stop, does it do anything besides act as a stop ? any advantage to screw it in a bit further ?

i dont believe so, because if you remove it, instead of being limited by the screw, you will be limited by the throttle cable.. and thats not too good, atleast i dont think

He he, that doesn't do anything but protect the carpet. And I wouldn't mess with the throttle cable range, they're faulty enough as they are.

Sounds like the old "JR Johnson" theory - "pull out the sabresaw, cut out the floorboard so you can put the hammer further down"
