Can't steer crossing the road? No sled turns well crossing a road. Why do you need to steer going across the road just go straight across. I guess I can see your point if you are getting gas or something and have to steer but just go slow and pull the back end around so you're straight and pull right up.

you wont gain much by putting on more carbide. the dealer told you that just so you will buy new ones from them. if you want to steer that bad then get something like these.

adjust your limiter straps so more weight is on the skis, that should help with steering. But on hard surfaces such as concrete and roads your not gonna be able to turn very well.

When you stud a track, you need to get longer carbides. Otherwise you have too much force pushing you forward with the extra traction on the track.
Going from one carbide to dual carbides won't help. Dual runners only help with darting.

When you want to steer on blacktop, stand up and put all your weight forward on the sled. When you want to go straight, stand on the back to wear the carbides less.

Works better for me than any type of carbides..

in parkin lots and such, i have found that oversteering does not work, but a gentle turn will. I also just hop off and sort of push the front end in the direction i want to go, works pretty good. But like mentioned above, sleds dont steer on pavement very well. Longer carbides may help some on pavement, but they will help compensate for the push from the studs when on the trail.
