Many years ago Mike Belfer converted my throttle linkage to a pull cable, and 
also moved it to the center.  It was a simple conversion, and it works slick. 
 However, if I had my druthers, I think I would prefer a mechanical set up to 
the cable.  We have experienced cable failures from time to time (and always 
at the most inopportune time).  Another issue is that we often discovered a 
burnt end at the cable break.  The cable failure was the result of the 
electrical system deciding to ADD another grounding point at a throttle cable 

Switching to a mechanical set up is not an option open to us on the Thunder 
Bolt, but is probably an option to consider on my TR3.
