the machine in difficult to control at speeds 50 MPH or higher. the rear end "floats" from side to side and the the front end drifts and darts from side to side. it is hard to stay in a a groove
the rear suspention is a bit "soft", the previous owner moved the suspention back 2 holes on the rails. The track/studs are about 75% and the carbides appear to be OK.
I was thinkng about moving the rear/rear shock forward as far as it will go (2 or 3 holes) to stiffen the rear up and adjusting the skis tighter. Any opinions?

Hmm, i would say try to move it up 2 holes, and then just tighten up your front shocks a bit, turn the spring and make them a little stiffer, and also try that with the front shock in the rear skid as well,if it is wet though it could take a little arm strength, and sometimes even if it's not wet it could still take some arm strength if it hasn't been turned in awhile,but it will turn. Then if that doesn't work move the suspension up another bolt. Sorry if this doesn't help. grease your steering too, the ball joints upfront just put some greese on them. Also your rear suspension may need greased, if you have a greese gun then try and greese that up as well, it should have a greese fitting toward the rear of the rear skid on one of the mounting arms. could be as simple as not being lubricated enough that could cause it. the darting from side to side is defidently in the front suspension though. ohwell give that a try, go through one by one process of elimination. eventually you will get it riding like it should ride.
