loosen it till it starts to ratchet when standing it up on full power, then tighten it a few turns on the adjusters.

Not saying that's the "cat way" but that's how we do it around here.

I want my track loose.

Why do you want to have the track loose? My local dealership says to prop the sled up, and adjust it so that the track sags about an inch at most.

An inch of sag without weight is pretty loose... I'd say that's darn close to how I run a 153.

Looser creates less drag.

I wish I could run my 141 looser... it just ratchets if I run it loose at all.
