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.
