I was at the Glenn Rose tractor show in TX today.  I saw a Jim Dandy PK tractor with some kind of electronic throttle.  It looked like a dimmer switch or slide with a phone cord plugged into the top of the box which was placed over where the old throttle lever was.  I could not find the owner to ask about it and I did not want to tear it apart without him there.  Has anybody heard of this before?

 

I should of taken a picture of it.

What would you gain by substituting an electric wire for a cable?

My thinking also so there has to be more to it than just replacing the throttle cable
