Hi everyone,

Could you please tell me what "full-throttle rage" means? Could it be unrestrained rage?
Thank you.

    A "throttle" is:

    "a valve for regulating the supply of a fluid (as steam) to an engine ; especially : the valve controlling the volume of vaporized fuel charge delivered to the cylinders of an internal combustion engine" (Merriam-Webster's)

    When something is at "full-throttle" it is delivering the maximum volume of fuel to the engine, and thus is either achieving or has achieved its maximum speed.

    Here, the "rage" is at its most extreme.
