disgusted w/ F7 handling

after a weekend trip to Canada w/ some Revs, and a couple new Yamis, I have to say that I am sick of the handling on my F-cat. This sled takes SO much input to keep the skis on the snow in a corner and not roll that its simply exhausting! after 450+mi I just had nothing left, 2 50yr old guys were ahead of me all weekend. The straight line performance of this sled is awsome, suspension for jumping is great, but the body roll is just to much, if there was more snow on the ground it would have got traded in on monday!

im about 195 with gear on and i had standard sno pro fox zeros in the rear with sno pro rear torsion springs on a standard 03 f7. i have fox floats in the front off an m series sled (1.25 in shorter center to center) and c and a pros for skis. this was a much better setup than the standard but still had some ski lift in the corners. after reading a wealth of stuff on setting these sleds up i went back to the standard torsions in the rear and had the rear shocks setup for my weight, revalved and a little quicker rebound. i dropped a little a pressure in the front. like 75 down to 55 pounds. sled feels much better now. almost no lift. pushes just a bit but i do have 187 studs and i need fresh carbide. i just run 10 in standard carbides on the c and a skis. i am going to drill a half inch up on the limiter and get just a little more pressure in the front. i think it will be perfect then. softer rear suspension with properly setup shocks is way nicer and better handling than stiff springs. just need the 05 seat and i will really like the sled.
