    GTX handling issue....

    Hey guys, I have an 07 GTX. I'm thinking about blocking off the OPAS.

    Here's the handling issue- Going in a straightline, 20-35mph, the craft lists to the side. VERY annoying. have to make a steering correction to get it level again. Happens all the time in that speed range, with 1, 2, or 3 riders.

    Is this an OPAS issue? has anyone ever experienced this?
    I want to fix it, but don't want to waste the money.

    Also, I've researched the block offs - nice fiberglass and aluminum sets out there.
    The block off plate would suffice. Isn't there a bushing kit that will pin the flappers up or down? was thinking this would be a good test.

    please let me know.

    sounds like to me one of opas paddle lifts is not working ie: not picking one of the paddles up and it lean to that side due to the paddle draging more then the other you might want to look into the opas block ups by r&d this will block the opas in a perment up postion but still give you a steering on off power ilde you can also make then your self out of 1/2" cpvc pipe
