hey fusion guys i was just wondering how the fusion handles from the factory because i have been on 2 trips... and i have seen 2 different fusions dart off the trail... 1 almost hit me and my bro... he ended up hitting a tree and fucking up his ski. I am assuming the shocks need to be adjusted? just wondering because this is scary!!

its been my experience that you can set it up two ways. one is go down the trail straight. the other is turn. you cant have a nice blend of both. i have tried using different skiis. works in some snow conditions, not in others, if you make adjs, it will vice versa. i assume this is why new spindles are on the 06's. that and a different skid. its nice to own the protusion.

I have found something that is workable for me. I have replaced just the outside skags with an 8" woodys executive. This improves the "bite" for cornering yet buy maintaining the factory skag on the inside there is no darting. For me taking some pre-load OFF the front end helped.

Put my USIs on from my 02 Edge I traded in. Very little darting. Turns great, doesn't push. I checked my ski alignment. It was toed in almost 1/4" from the factory. I set mine to 1/16" toe out.

i have the ski pressure dialed in and at times its not enough, and other times too much. never had a sled so twitchy and impossible to tune., my teo out is + 1/4" i'd like to know what those new spindles do. its nice to own the protusion.
