Got mine installed with the oft what a noticeable difference. I set mine to two so the spindles are to the rear more and left the camber stock. Best three hundred bucks I have spent. Thanks Hygear.

This is the same setup I used on mine. I have tuner skis as well. I have only run about 60 miles with the slycast setup. I handles great going down the trail but I'm getting a slight dart when I jump hard on the brakes. I shortened the rear snuber strap one hole. I'm waiting for a head gasket right now, so my unit is all over the garage.

I'll try the same settings you guys started with for my baseline with the slicast . 1975, you pulled your rear strap up one, curious where your front strap is set.

I'm set right in the middle holes on the fron strap.

I can comment a bit, but not sure how helpful it'll really be. I never rode the Nytro w/out the slicast a arms so I can't compare. That said, I've got a set of Curve xs with 4" round bars and the slicast a arms and my nytro handles very well. I set the caster like the above folks (two notches, tilting the spindles more rearward) and I have 3 washers on the outside, 1 on the inside for camber. Keep in mind, this is on a 2008, not sure of the differences between the 08 and 09 spindles or how my settings would translate to an 09 or later. Both limiter straps set to stock. Steering is a bit on the heavy side but nothing I can't live with. Had minor darting here and there depending on conditions, but never to the point of being dangerous, just minorly annoying and I don't think any worse than any other sled out there. The sled tracked predictably, was steady, to the point that I could ride with one hand as long as I wasn't in the middle of woops. I'd read horror stories of white-knuckle handling, terrible darting, unpredictable handling etc in stock form and can tell you that I experience none of that with the setup described above.
