I've got myself quite a bad case of tendonitis (tennis elbow) at the moment, ('flu? tennis elbow? - what is this? the medical section?) and apart from the fact that I play tennis really badly, colleagues have suggested that (..er..amongst other things...) that I've been putting my right arm under a lot of strain with too much slot racing. I was wondering if anybody had come across this before? The way things are, I might have to start trying to use my other hand, and also for slot car racing. Any suggestions as to what might help?

Sorry to here about your elbow mooster .I do remember that Derek(I'm 74 you know) Howell from Bolton club was told by his doctor that he had to change from thumb to finger control as his unnatural movement of thumb wiggleing had damaged the joint and given him athritis. Inyour case Take extra two magnets and use a full on switch. No control needed.

What, what?!?! I'd see those magnets a mile off you cheater!!

Anyway, I heard of another racer getting arthritus in his thumb, v. sad...

I've pulled a muscle in my shoulder before while racing. Anyone who has seen me race will testafy that I squeeze every last drop of power out of my throttle. It's been quite serious before, I've had to stop racing twice and once I couldn't use the arm for anything for at least two days...

Anyone else been hurt by driving too fast? Wait let me rephrase that...
