I played it for the first time yesterday (got it for Christmas) and 30 seconds through the first race I played, I had to pause the game because there was a sore ache from the part of my hand near the thumb (I don't know the biological names for these XD) and my wrist on my right hand. 0.o I don't want the wheel, I think it's a bit awkward for a portable system plus I'm happy playing it without one except for the fact that it hurts. I use the turbo boosters a lot, which probably has something to do with it, because of the way my right hand's positioned when I'm playing it; it's my strategy for winning races, but I used this on the DS version too and as far as I remember I never had to pause 2 - 3 times in a race to massage my hand, and I can't resort to it during WiFi, either. I just want to know if this has happened to anyone else? And if it has, what did you do?
