    GTX won't run straight

    When cruising around on my 06 GTX, straight line not moving handle bars, my ski tracks left and right constantly. I drove someone else's GTI and it tracked nice and straight. Is there a problem with my ski or is this normal with the GTX?

    Thanks!

    just ever so slightly left and right when going slow? could be the opas paddles . . . does the gti have opas? my t-x and rxt seem to do this when cruising around 20-30 mph or so.

    check under the ski!
    might have a loose intake grate or the rideplate could be misaligned or loose!
    make sure nothing is hanging or loose

    RobKman, It does this when going 20-30 +.

    i bet the opas paddles aren't going all the way up at that speed --- does it get better at faster speeds ?

    yeah, both of mine do this at these speeds . . . maybe it is the nature of the beast. i did put the opas competition kit in which fixes the paddles in the raised position and have not noticed the swaying since, but you do lose some mobility at slow/idle speeds.

    Maybe I will try to hold the OPAS paddles in the up position with rubber tubing over the shafts to see if that helps If I can get back out this season on it.
