I want one.
Mine works so well I don't know hom I ever managed without it.
I'll explain quickly how it works. It attaches to the same place where the cable for the gas pedal attaches. They use their own cables though. I leave my adjustment nut on my hand throttle loose so that it acts just like the pedal and bounces back if you release it. By tightening the screw a tad it can be locked in place. You can tighten the screw beforehand and then it will stay where you release it - you will need to push it back in order to release the throttle.
So if for instance you have the gas pedal pushed in a bit there will be some slack on the hand throttle and you will feel as soon as it reaches the point to where the pedal is pushed in. If you lock it in place there the throttle will remain there even if you release your foot off the pedal. If you push down on the pedal a bit and release it again it will go back to the level where the hand control is set.
So in short it can do what you want it to. Just make sure that your cable and sleave is properly routed and that the cable is properly attached in the engine bay. The reason I say this is that when you set the hand throttle at a specific rpm and then press on the pedal some more there will be some slack on the hand throttle cable - ensure that it cannot loosen itself this way or get hooked on something.
Do it, you won't look back.
