i was test driving my spider, but could not get past 90 in 5th gear??? great accleration... car runs fine, just can't get past 90 mph.... so i pull in home.open the hood, look around , all looks ok..??? with the hood open, i press the throttle pedal... doesn't seam to open all the way, back to the throttle body.. found it..i added a new gound from the throttle body to the block, with a quick dis-connect about 5" away, so i can work on the car faster... the throttle stop was hitting the blue part of the crimp-on conector i just instaled, bent it back.. full throttle..

As it's been said: "You'd better learn to laugh at yourself, because certainly others are going to!"

Good advice.

Hmm... sounds like it could have just as likely gotten to full throttle and wouldn't return :eek:. 100+ mph with a stuck throttle might be harder to chuckle about...
