Default Throttle on steering wheel

Gets a little cramped on my kart with long rides and I did not want to cut up the frame, so I decided to convert it over to steering wheel throttle and brake. Took some trial and error on the throttle but finally got it all figured out. Now I can stretch out a little bit and drive the wheels off it!

Yeah, a small piece of 409 stainless. 11% Cr (chrome) 88% Fe (steel), and about 1% of odd and end elements. Being so high in Fe it welds fine.
