Careful with the Lokar. Not a bad piece but may want to look into either a factory carb cable (85 mustang) or a rod style linkage deal. You said that the stock pedal bent.....I assume you have a heavy foot lol

Ya I hit it as hard n fast as I can instead of running rpm up on trans brake.
I wanted to go rod style but I would've missed muscle car Sunday as they would've had to make one so I went with z.
Hope it works or I'm spraying to see if I can skip the sand when it sticks haha

I got sick of fixing busted throttle cables (and losing the occasional race as a result) so I made a couple of quick mods to a B&M shifter cable. Been bulletproof for years.

The problem is the pedal has more travel than length of cable. Make a little pedal stop for it and you won't have any issues...

I used to "roll" the factory pedal in my Futura towards the trans tunnel from standing on it too much. Ended up shoving something behind the carpet to act as a stop.

When I fit my lokar cable I set it so the pedal is on the floor when the carb is at W.O.T. No issues for 5yrs.

No stretch issues? What hurt me was pedal assembly was bent for nos wide open switch from last owner then I tried bending it up and reinforcing and like was stated I didn't block it so I put too much stress on the cable.
Now with new assembly and cable I should be fine with either doing floor method or a block .
Appreciate the help and ideas

I welded a piece of 3/4"x1/8" flat stock to my factory stamped pedal on my 94 and it works great with no flexing issues

The z is awesome. My 60 foot has gone up this year to a 1.5 for some reason (going to slightly tighten band and loosen anti roll) but had best et and mph.
I still may switch to rod style someday but big recommendation for team z pedal assembly if you want to run cable.
