All of our F models – a Jaguar, an F-8 LXR and a TZ-1 Touring share the same issue – profound understeer – or more precisely “push”.
This platform is notorious for soft and imprecise turn-in and requires the brake be dragged to the apex to get the sled set-up for a good slice.
There is really no darting issue here with the stock carbides – in fact we might welcome a little darting if the F’s would turn-in with more precision.
We threw a set of USI’s with Stud Boy Shaper bars on our Jaguar Z-1 and got an immediate and positive improvement in turn-in.
Same for the F-8 LX-R. These sleds loved these skis. That’s a great fix for the F’s understeer attitude.
Again, you can bolt on a set of Snow Trackers and get an equal improvement in turn-in and a solid reduction in understeer.
No darting results from their use either.
