original experimental intent was like 55%, worked for several days till it didn't. short version is that i thought i was about to die. "at your own risk" for sure.

have been thinking that a smarter cruise control might be better than trying to continue to improve the nut holding my steering wheel. PID maybe?
Just so that you're aware, the throttle stop testing I am talking about is to test for changes in aerodynamic drag, with the stop used only during the testing process.
