Does your sled have hydraulic brakes? if so, slide you caliper back off and make sure you compress the piston all the way in. You may have formed a ridge inside the bore and the piston is hanging up. The mechanical brakes had a ball and cam with a return spring. Any part could wear and cause them to stick. To adjust them after 95' you simply pulled the knob out and turned it.

Its hydraulic. But I already did that once and ended up with the same result?

OK, let me get this straight. If you pull the brake caliper off, the track turns fine, right? This will prove that it is the brakes and nothing else. If that is so, then the after market pads are too thick or the caliper piston is sticking.
If it was just a fluke and you still have problems with the track locking up check you rear shock mount and make sure it is up and not down, they always tip down when you put the skid in and you need them up.

Alright thanks. No the pads aren't too thick, I think I installed them wrong or something, will try a few things with that. Thanks for the help.

I remember when I replaced the pads in my sled they seemed a little tight at first. I know the disc got pretty darn hot but things clearanced themselvesafter a few miles. If you cracked the bleeder and compressed the piston as far as they would go, then you got what you got. Maybe I was lucky my disc didn't warp, but they wore in fine.
