Does anyone know if there is a way to turn off the drive control while pulling someone without stopping? Sometimes the riders want to go faster or slower and I can't seem to make any changes to the speed once the drive control is activated without stopping and making the boarder fall so I can go back to just throttle.

You can adjust speed by tapping increase/decrease buttons on shuttle wheel. NOTE: this only changes by 1/10th mph per press. Very slow change.

I want to find how to fully cancel the Drive control without returning to neutral. Many times I accidentally leave the Drive engaged after picking up boarder, Only to find it limiting my speed while trying to drive back to ramp.

My wife used to get me riled up by saying "do you know what you're doing", now it's just funny to us both. I'm thinking if she sees me over there tapping that button and asks me if I know what I'm doing, it won't be funny.

What @Markk said. You can adjust the speed by pushing the up and down buttons next to the big knob. It is .1 per press but you can press them pretty quickly.
