I have found my sled F7, 1in track 102 studs down the center. When you hit it on the ice at about 40 MPH it rocks side to side bad! Does yours do this my brothers does the same. HE has same stud pattern as i do. Putting studs in the closed window help this?( I know it is slowing us down!
THANKYOU Skydog

Skydog,

On sleds in the past, I have noticed that 'rocking side to side' was more noticable when there was TOO MUCH rear suspension front arm spring tension. Again, this was on other brand/model sleds so it might not actually change the F7 characteristics but it might be worth a try..... Quick, cheap, and easy.

I can get mine to rock side to side under power by slightly pressing down with my legs. I'm guessing that it's a characteristic of the light weight because I can control my pitch in the air by leaning forward or back also.

What's the width from your furthest outside stud to outside stud in the center belt? What was this same distance on 15" wide tracks with studs in the outter belts??? There's a pretty big % difference in width! -- Roy
