I have an F7 Sno-Pro with a 1" track (I swapped it), and 153 1.175" Woody's Megabites. It was terrible with the stock carbides. But I just put on 9" Carbide Shaper bars. The thing now turns on a dime, steering effort is low. It's actually scary how well it turns. The sled can suddenly oversteer on packed roads, so I'll probably have to introduce some understeer by towing out the ski's. This is the most responsive front end I have tried, and the easiest to steer. The Shaper Bars are definitely worth the money!

B) I had read in Snow tech at some point that those shaper wear bars work great on the f-cats , I'll be using them when I burn the stock set down. I've noticed the handlig of the sled (cornering) really sharpened up when the sled was ridden on hard pack as compared to turning in the fluff. My only concern at this point is going into a hard pack corner a bit too hot and one ski going into the loose stuff, that might look to pretty :unsure:

I got mine through my dealer who ordered them from parts unlimited. They dont charge freight plus my dealer gave me a discount on my 6 inch shapers. Not running any studs on my 1.375 track so I wanted to see how the 6 inch handles her...

Anyone running the 7 1/2 shapers with SnoPro Lugs and studs.
I thought that 9 inch might be a bit much, but maybe not...............

what effect if any, does the 9 inch shapers have in powder? I still like busting off trail, and don't want to completely relegate my sled to trail only.

What have I been telling you guys. Nothing will eliminate the Firecat push but the Shapers will help more than anything else.
I disagree, I am running C&A's with 8" of carbide and have no push, as do many others.

Why do you say that you can't eliminate the push??
