Someone correct me if I am wrong, but isn't suppose to be toe out?
I set mine toe out and it took care of the darting.

I have eliminated darting in all my sleds by buying Ski-savers and shims from Berkstrom Skegs. The shims are screwed into the rubber mount above the ski to put more weight on the rear of the ski, I've actually noticed that my skegs wear more evenly through the whole carbide. This will cost you less then 25.00 and is very easy to install. Hope u try this u won't be dissapointed.

Yes, toe out. Rob did a nice write-up in the Firecat tips section on the main HCS page...Marc

Is your F7 a SnoPro and is your track studded? I think I remember you posting you had 102 studs?
I have 8 inch carbides and 144 studs and the darting is almost non-existant and I haven't had a chance to adjust the front skid shock yet.

96 studs...snopro....I'm going to tighten up the front skid shock a little tomorrow and see if that helps. I already had planned on moving the limiter straps a little tighter also....hopefully that won't make it dart more by putting more weight on the skis <_<

Easy steer kit $10.00. From shade tree or parts unlimited,ski-doo also sells them. All but eliminates the "Darting" caused by other carbide tracks in the snow.
