Reduce preload on the front of track spring to put more weight on the skis and rear of the track. Makes a HUGE difference.

You can find all kinds of info on this great forum. If you don't find what you need here, check out www.ty4stroke.com.

usually a few adjustments to the skid shocks and ski shocks will stabilize your sled considerably, but they are tippy simply by design.

does yours have the option for widening the skis?

look at your skis where they attach to the spindle. if there is a thick(about 1/2" wide) collar/spacer on either side of the spindle, you can offset the skis.

putting both spacers to the inboard side will move the ski out around 1/2" x 2 widens the stance by 1". most were delivered with the spacers on either side of the spindle.

tune your skid from there.

I'm sure you meant "putting both spacers to the OUTBOARD side will move the ski out..."

No problem. I went in the sled shelter to have a look and figure this would work on the Phazer (FX chassis) but not on the Vector (RS chassis) as there doesn't seem to be any spacers. The Venture uses the same ski as the Vector.

Update: I had a look at the parts list and there seems to be different skis for Canada with spacers. They looked so thin, I thought they were part of the spindle. Now I know why you asked if he had the kind with or without spacers.
