But since it is a knob you turn, you can grip it tight and regardless of how rough the ride it will hold a steady rpm until you twist it. But either will work well. The vernier style definitely allows finer, more precise control.If that's used while driving on a rough trail it'd be very hard to keep a steady hand
The Vernier knob is not a plug and play thing, more of a DIY.
Yeh I just use it on trails that are a rougher ride to keep me from blipping the throttle every bump and winching. I’m fairly low too with 4:1 and 5.38’sI've got a Vernier knob mounted on my Kilby/York bracket. I use it to control the RPM for the OBA, OBW and the winch. I don't have a hand throttle since I have 5:1 Atlas, slipping the clutch is a non-issue.
Thanks. I’ve been looking for info on these for another project that I’m working on.I have had hand throttles on several jeeps, including both bicycle shifters and a vernier hand throttle control. One member's supposition that if a vernier control is used for driving on a rough trail that it would be difficult to keep a steady hand for adjustment is completely unfounded.
A vernier hand throttle works well both on rough trails and for elevating rpms for winch/onboard air use. So does a bicycle shifter. It is simply a matter of personal preference and budget. I prefer the vernier control to a bicycle shifter because no matter how well a shifter might work it still looks like a cobbled together Rube Goldberg device.
PS - If one has the budget there is also the option of an electronic throttle control. I am not sure if these are still available because I didn't get a response when I inquired about them last year, but they are currently listed on the website:
