    Default Snapped throttle cable during a rally race? No problem!



    From our friends at the Axis of Oversteer comes a story of determination, fortitude, and a healthy dose of Darwinian law.

    With less than a mile left in a stage of the Ralley de Serrians in France, the throttle cable in our hero's Renault finally gives up the ghost. Does he give up? No! Does the team try to push their way to the finish? Hell no! The driver tells his co-pilot to man the wheel while he hops into the engine bay, pulls the hood over himself and then manually controls the throttle cable bracket to a heroic finish. The picture above speaks for itself, but the video after the jump tells the whole tale.

    They've got some serious determination... I'll give them that
