Lightened Push/Pull System: Identical to a standard push/pull system in how it operates but ultimately the acceleration is a lot lighter. This is achieved by an electronic control module which simply duplicates what the original acceleration pedal on the vehicle is telling the engine. The push/pull lever moves a small linkage on the additional electronic module rather than moving the original accelerator pedal.
