so.. once I was watching some world rally driver who broke his throttle cable, drive the rest of the course with a shoelace as a replacement.... his co-pilot pulling the shoelace as they drove along..


broke mine last nite.. haha.. all I had was some vice grips and some 10 gauge wire.. hooked it up and had to hand-drive it back from coquitlam to pitt meadows. . quite the experience.

I'm sure this has happened to others here.. :p

It was not fun... but Rob is a truck driver and did well. got home and hit legion for many [3] to unwind. Figures we may have taken a couple of miles off the clutch though.
