Has anyone had any experience with the Synapse hand controller as made by Joy Racing Products?

Their Facebook PAGE makes great reading.

Brilliant!
 
However, the controller uses a small potentiometer coupled to the trigger as the speed controller. I wonder if such a small "pot" will hold up under the huge number of on/off cycles it will undergo in use.

most commercial grade potentiometers are rated from 1-2 million cycles. On our track you are looking at probably 4 per lap. I will probably need a new hand before I need a new potentiometer. :D:D:D
