Default Limiter strap on Alpha

Iím on the 4th hole. Sled came that way from the dealer. In the DEEP snow we are having in Washington right now Iíd like to see if I could get better floatation/less trenching. Anyone try sucking up the limiter strap a hole or two?

Where do you have the skid shocks set up at? What holes are your skid mounts in?

I found higher front shock pressure sled would trench in deep BC powder.
I run 35lbs works good.

I sucked mine up one hole. It sucked. Totally killed the playful feeling of the chassis and it was way too much ski pressure. Went back to the stock location and dropped the rear mount to the bottom hole and that has been the best I've been able to get it.

In stock, out of the crate form, was your alpha rear skid mounted from the factory like mine? Front arm in the bottom mount hole and rear arm in the upper hole? Moved my rear mount to the lower hole and I liked a lot better. Havenít touch limiter strap.
