In stock form the best you can do is loosen the front shock in the rear skid as soft as it goes, Lower the front end as low as it goes without risking losing your spring retainers on the bumps, and stiffen the rear springs and rear scissor stops on high.
I haven't had my F7 snopro on the trails yet, but on all zr's I have had, ski lift was a beautiful thing. When the outside ski is biting hard and the inside ski hovering slightly over the trail, you know you are getting it! I expect my Firecat to provide a similar sensation. If that is true, stop beeetchin' and ride. You didn't buy a Firecat to ride like you are on a cruiser, did you?
Putting your coupler blocks on 3 still won't keep the ski's on the ground. Only difference is they will be 1 foot in the air instead of 2. Still can't steer and you will loose needed transfer when racing your buddies. Work with your center shock and limiter straps. Make sure you put some "real" trail miles on before tinkering. Mine had a bad push driving around the field after the first snow. Turned out to be a non-issue in actual trail conditions.
:wub: Thats the MOST AWESOME PART OF THE F7 Its totally the BALLZ to WHACK the Flippa and have it point at the sky! :wacko:
I was coming up a hill around a hard left turn yesterday (on F7) and started to "drift" into the soft shoulder. I look up to see the HUGE OAK about 25 feet away. I stand up and pull HARD LEFT back onto the trail AND HAMMER IT. Well, I almost $HIT MYSELF shen it HOOKED UP (snopro) and came back on the trail, only to STAND UP STRAIGHT IN THE AIR doing a "wheelie" op the hill. AWESOME FEELING. MY brother got off on it almost as much as I did. He had FRONT ROW SEATING just on my ass as we came into the corner.
DONT CHANGE A THING - YOU'll LOVE IT :wub:
