    Actually I have posted on a few occasions on here and other sites that Adj cables suck. they have been known to stretch or break. You are better off with a stock one. My adj one last year stretched on me while racing and I had no pedal at all

    thats what i think happened cause i had like 2 extra inches. but like i said after i adjusted it some more it only lasted for a few mins so im thinkin that i broke most of the strands and the last couple i stretched....

    I'm not saying they are better than stock as I've seen them on friend's cars break BUT i've had mine for around 2 years with absolutely ZERO problems....full UPR setup.
