So, my 2000 FD 700 had some issues with keeping it going in a straight line down the trails. One problem was my carbides were pretty much non existent. I replaced them, it helped a little, at least now I can turn. Added some shims, it helped a little more. Now that I got that resolved, at least I think I do, I can't get it to "hook up". My rear end just seems to do nothing but spin and fish tail. A few friends that I have in the snowmobile community say that I need to stud my track. I can kind of agree, but then disagree. Before, the carbides that came on my sled seemed to do the job, and I never noticed that I was doing much fishtailing, if any at all.

Last time I looked...I don't remember, the sled is 400 miles away at a friends garage in Michigan. No ski lifting going on here, won't get enough traction.

Ya know, I really like this old sled. In fact, I like it more than my son's 2018 900 ACE 4 stroke. I love the power of the ACE, but it just does not feel right. The throttle is too sensitive to use. In the part of Michigan we sled, trails can get pretty rough, and going through them, you are constantly hitting the throttle when you don't want to due to condition of trails.
So, I want to keep my ole 700 going as long as I can afford to.
