Wide open throttle, not so wide open!

I noticed a while back that my throttle doesn't seem to move as far as others so I but a brick on my gas petal and looked at my butterfly valve its only about 75% open i can still pull the rocker on the throttle body about 1/4 turn until it is truly wide open. I do have a one inch throttle body spacer installed, maybe that is where the slack is coming from. Any help or advice would be appreciated. After all [more air+more fuel=more power]

Normally have an adjustment where the throttle cable is attached by the intake.

I only saw a ball and socket style retainer but I rigged it up so it opens all the way now the city difference is little to none but the higher rpms like highway travle and top end accel. Are moderatly better
