Did I hear correctly and the guy in the black kart was Ziggy? Why was Ziggy holding the engine with his hand? Was he reaching for the throttle?

At the last turn, where's that spiky, blue shell when you need it? LOL!

Oh, I see. What about attaching the throttle cable up farther on the pedal if you have room? That should give you more distance, at least a little bit more. Another option would be to put a lever mechanism somewhere on the kart where the small movement of the pedal can cause a larger movement of the throttle like so:
