Digital Throttle and Shift - or fly-by-wire rather than heavy cables (my guess only)

As far as I am aware the DTS foot throttle is an option with the new Verado engines. They had a really smart one that have discontinued. The DTS (fly by wire) is the same as a Hot Foot but with and actuator bolted on the side, so nothing particularly trick.
