Throttle lock/ hand throttle / electronic throttle????

I was thinking...

Could an aftermarket cruise control (or the factory cruise control) be setup to maintain a given engine RPM rather than a given speed? Perhaps by taking the speed sense off of the distributor/tach signal/ injector pulse?

I saw this link that electronically controls the throttle (using the idle air control valve, i think) but it does not kick off when the brake is depressed.

Ideally, I'd like to be able to uses the factory cruise buttons to function as normal, and then with the flick of a switch change the mode so that they can be used as a throttle lock.

I mean, I could always put a Shimano shifter on the shifter handle... but why not complicate it a bit.

For the record, I am wanting the ability to idle up not only for off road driving and climbing but for the On-board air compressor and running the winch.

I think I had seen that before, it looks familiar, maybe while browsing Stu's site. The manufacturer, Kwan Motorsystems, is out of business. The guy was a genius. Anybody have one they want to sell?

I dont know why you couldnt get the computer to do it. Big trucks have it built into there pcm. Take my intertrashnal you would turn on the cruise set and it goes up to a 900rpm idle, hit it again and it goes to 1100rpm idle. If you touch the clutch or break it kicks out.
