    Mysterious problem on my RXP

    I have an issue with my RXP.

    When I am running at half throttle for awhile, there is some mysterious force that pulls my thumb down on the throttle. It will pull down on the throttle until I reach top speed or when I get a large grin on my face and then it will let go.

    It seems to be an intermittent problem, does not happen all the time, but I am curious to know if this mysterious "force" is affecting others on this forum.

    I was suffering from the same problem, although mine wasn't intermittent. Which often led to some very interesting moments in very rough water . I suspect I was very entertaining to anyone watching.

    Lawracing.......I remember those days........... So I ran off the wife and bought an RXT.
    Well that's not exactly the way it happened, but it sounds good.

    I believe you are in the early stages of "RXP Thumb", a cronic condition where the thumb is permanently fused in a closed condition. The eyelids are next, they will fuse wide open, then the jaw and tongue will go, rendering ones ability to say anything other than "YEEEEEEEHAAAAAA!!" useless. The final, fatal stages are an empty wallet and having to decide between one's old lady and a shiny new go .0071 mph faster doodad. In extreme cases, computer adept victims may go completely insane and start their very own forum.

    Either that, or it's just a little wrist strain from something compltely different! lol


    Wild bill is probably right though. He forgot one other symptom however. He forgot the jowels flappin with a big stream of druel on one side of your face in the breeze like a hound dog out the passenger window at 70mph.

    Do you have to have over 10 hours for this problem to occur? I'm still a "less than" and only get a 3/4 grin out of mine.
