I'd say the foot control. It is like driving stick shift and easily adaptable. Hans, I am glad that there are options like this for you to have!

Even though it sounds like you've chosen already, I'd have to say foot controls, too. Learning to drive with my hands sounds way harder than just changing feet...

Hans - I'm with everyone else, go with the left footer. In fact, I'd go with a left foot throttle AND a right foot throttle so you can go twice as fast.

I injured my right ankle some years ago and had to do the left-foot thing for a few weeks, ya get used to it after a while. Worst deal was when I injured my right index finger and had to pick my nose with my left hand. Stabbed my brain a few times, but eventually I got to where I could pick-n-roll equally well with either hand.

I think integrating a twist throttle off of a motorcycle would be both fun and cheap....but if it'* not legal, then left foot throttle.
