Now if you were to swap it for a huge knob, even though the degrees moved would be the same, it would take much more 'spin' at the outer circumference to achieve the same degrees of rotation.
That's actually a great idea. Thanks.

I took just enough slack out of the throttle cable and it seems to have made a difference.
I haven't been able to try it offroad yet.
