I had a plastic "Easy Steer" kit or as some people call them "Dart Kit" for my last sled to stop it from going from side to side on the trails. It had metal skis so they fit on just fine and worked great. My new sled has plastic skis and an "Easy Steer" kit will not fit on them.  Can anyone tell my a way to stop my sled from darting on the trails? If there is something I can buy, where can I get it? Thanks.

zl800,
 with the amount of snow here i have just answered your problem. no just joking. check the ski pressure on your sled when you are driving the sled slow if it is tough steering then ski pressure is the problem. myself i make sue there is a little bit more than 1/2 the distance used on the front shock on the rear. also the spring pressure on the front suspension is almost none.

where in ontario ? put in your location unless your picture is up in the post office and you are hiding from the law.

What i feel is the first thing and the MOST IMPORTANT thing to check is your ski allignment.  I believe that in your manual it says you should half about 1/8" of toe out.  What i do is make sure that i have about 3/8" of toe out.  If you have toe in that is bad.

Before you do this you should first check to see if you track needs to be tightned and the allign your track.

What you do is get 2 pieces of 1"x1" angle iron about 10' long put them down the side of the track making sure it touching the track from one end to the other end.  Now measure to the centre of your ski at the toe of it, and the heel of it and make the according adjustments .

Tighten up the limiter straps on the front of your skidframe.  That will put more pressure on the skis.
