i maxed out my straps and it makes it come up higher. the front shock adjustment lifts the middle of the sled making it stiffer, and im not to sure about the top long shock running along with the track

You have to be carefull jumping as the w- shaped bar on front of suspension has been known to break. You can also change the shocks or whole suspension to viper suspension but you will lose top end.

You could put a Expert X under it, but those are expensive too. You could put a SC-10 or a Pro-X skid under it too!
