i had the same prob wif my eb, always maxed out at 160 when trying to overtake trucks and found out the cable wasnt long enough to open tha butterfly. easy fix, cut the end of the cable off and bent it into a hook shape so it stayed on the throttle lever. cable was tighter n opened up more on full throttle. would keep up wif my mates bf wif exhaust and pod n back seats pulled out


brilliant first post. bad spelling and a dodgy fix that you could've just done right and got a new cable. you'll make friends here :twisted:
