    very small changes to each side and make sure the rear wheels not too loose. Also be sure when hanging the rear that you hook it evenly in the middle.

    It can be done but it sure is a pain. Small adjustments. 1/8 to 1/4 turn in and then 1/8 to 1/4 turn out on opposite side.

    That is close enough. Sometime I set the track tension on one side and then measure the adjuster bolt for the other side and just run with it especially if I am having that kind of an issue. I have had some that work out perfect.. that's when I scratch my head and say WTF.

    Couple things to check:
    -measure the distance from the center of each driver to the inside edge of tunnel on its respective side. Its not uncommon for drivers to be off center on drive shafts right from new
    -check that the suspension is centered in the tunnel and also centered to the drivers...the center of the slides need to be dead center with the center of the drivers all the way back to rear of suspension

    Some sleds need shimming and aligning depending on original quality control
