French translation:manette des gaz
Explanation:
sachant que throttle control lever = manette de commande des gaz ou levier des gaz selon le Ernst, je te propose manette des gaz. J'ai également trouvé accélération ou accélérateur pour throttle, soit manette d'accélération mais la première suggestion me parait préférable.

molette d'accélération


Explanation:
"Throttle handle" étant la "manette d'accélérateur" dans le registre automobile, (source : GDT), et "thumb wheel" une "molette" dans le registre informatique" (source : eurodicautom), "throttle wheel" devrait logiquement être la "molette d'accélération" ou "molette de commande des gaz".

Une remarque en passant

Il est vrai que cela traduit parfaitement "wheel"...
