Nice! I've wondered if that could be back-fit to a bus or whether you needed to pray to the gods of whatever ECM you might have fitted. I can't see the pictures you've posted at work (or pretty much any pictures anyone's posted, thanks to the Draconian firewall around here) so I'll have to check them out at home tonight.
Where do you pick up your speed signal? I ask because I had a sphincter moment with one of these once. I had installed 2 magnets 180* apart on the driveshaft of a pickup, and a Hall effect sensor near them, according to instructions. When one of them let go, the control immediately floored the accelerator. Easy enough to control, but a wake-up moment nonetheless.
