Default Throttle stuck wide open. Hit a tree. Anyone else heard of this.

Road for about an hour. Stopped to wait for my son. Stabbed the throttle all the way. Holly s**t the thing went like hell. Hit it like crazy. Had to jump off before hitting a tree. Hit one tree. Flew 30ft hit other tree. By that time the tether can out. And stopped. Did some serious damage.

All sleds suffer from this when the humidity and temperature are just right. A good tether is what we have been preaching. The Phantom Teth-Air starts timing down to a shutoff as soon as your hand leaves the bars with the engine reved up.
