I've been sizing up my track tension. Something I haven't really paid a whole lot of attention to on past sleds. I've set it at recommended tension (~1 3/4" @ ~20 lbs, as searched out on this forum) but when I lower it back on the floor it seems like the track goes bar tight. I keep thinking that there should be a little slack on the top of the track (up in the tunnel) or a little between the upper and rear idlers, but it goes pretty tight. And that's before I get on it! Is this what I should expect or should I slacken it up more? (I'm leaning towards the latter)

Any suggestions or advice?

You're good, when you set the machine on the floor the suspension compresses slightly and moves rearward taking up some of the slack.
