Is that with no weight on it? I usually run mine so i can pull it down about an inch and a half with 20 pounds of weight

The best setting is 3/4" - 1" of sag, just sitting on the stand, no weight. I run mine at 1" of sag, much easier on the sliders, and bearings in the rear wheels, and sled has less rolling resistance and rolls nicer.

1/8" just sitting on the stand is WAY WAY to little of adjustment!

if it doesnt ratchet then you are fine.

on edge sleds because of there longer travel you need to let there be some sag in the track. depending on how far forward from the rear axle you are measureing, in the deepest part of the sag i will see close to 2" with no weight.

basically if the sled has no studs i loosen it till it ratchets. then tighten it up a little bit, if there are studs i do the same thing but tighten it a little more.
