    Nah that's not it. I have an 02 and traction control, and the cruise cable is where you'd expect it to be. The throttle cable and the cruise cable are about an inch apart...

    Yeah that's weird. Maybe he's done some custom work that removed the cruise cable? You've got me curious now!

    I would have to look under my hood to make sure, but I am pretty certain cars with TC are different than cars without it. I could be wrong though, wouldn't be the first time

    I have pics of this on my photobucket account, but I can't access it here at work. After work I have a Cubs game and then am spending the night at a gf's house after. I won't be able to verify until tomorrow night after work.

    I thought it did. I can't remember. I know on non-TC there are 2 cables and on TC cars there are 3 cables...I think

    I'll let you know tomorrow night.

    I have t/c and cruise and its one cable like the pics posted above. The throttle cable goes over to the traction control module first then loops back to the throttle body.

    Ok well now I am just embarrassed. My WS6 does NOT have traction control. My Cobra does. I was getting them mixed up in my head. Forgive this humble one's noobery...

    So yeah, here's my non TCed throttle/cc cables:


    And for comparison here's the Cobra's. Since it does have TC I would expect it to not have the CC cable there. I guess the setup you're seeing in the WS6s is not a 'universal' type setup...
