Default Hand Controls, why am I just thinking about this???

I've been brain storming how to improve the pedal placement on my Manco Dingo. I've already pushed the pedals out a few inches and now my problem is getting my heels into stable positions while being able to still get to the gas and brake easily. I need my heels to keep me in the seat. Then I remembered that there are a lot electric and gas karts that have hand controls.

I found this video of a race kart with hand controls.

I already have hydraulic brakes on my Dingo so my hand should be able to squeeze hard enough to max out the brakes.

Now I need to find some hand brakes and wire them up to my kart. I'll start with changing the throttle and if that works good then will try swapping the brake.
