Re: Hi

What?

You still here?

I thought you were there?

Still moving? Or now trying to sell?

Hand throttle sounds like fun. Reminds me of when the throttle return spring broke on my Dodge. Made extra fun by the fact that I have to double clutch for 2nd. Double clutch doesn't work so well when the RPMs hardly drop.

Hi Cal.

Sorry to hijack your thread.

Re: Hi

House sold, im gone...but yeah I'm here.

I still work in CA, I visit just enough to keep my job. I came down yesterday to do an alignment and bumpsteer correction on a drag car I just finished. I'm going to have to stay a few days extra due to the dodge throttle.

But still...340k miles, never been towed home.

Re: Hi

Hi everyone, I miss everyone. Let's hope that 2021 gets us at least a little bit closer to what used to be normal. Not that I was ever normal, haha

Re: Hi

I had a hand throttle in Plymouth Fury for a looooong time. It broke one day and there was no internet so I wasn't sure what to do because I was a lazy kid. I ended up installing a choke cable I found at a parts store through the dash and to the carb. Had a pull button on it. If I had the cable in my hand and that hand also on the wheel, I was doing about 75 and I was just fine with that. For like, ever.
