im not 100% on this but i hear its from riding on low snow conditions, and the paddles hitting hard bases like the frozen ground, rocks, ice, etc

How old is the track? Is it stored out of the sun year round? Spinning the track on rough trails/rocks/just generally crappy conditions will do it, and if the track is old and/or has been exposed to sun in storage that will contribute, also.

I know if you don't store your sled off the ground the track will dry rot and crack like that.

So far I've had really good luck with my paddle track, I think mostly because of what you said. Everytime I stop, (well not EVERY time, I don't mean at bars or restaurants or gas stations, when I'm at home) the first thing I do is put the rear up on my stand. After a good hard whoopin ride, and I put the sled away for the night, I can see the lugs are actually bent back. In the morning after being on the stand, they are straight again.
