Hi completed my T72, everything worked like a dream, out on the pavement and the lawn great. After 3 or 4 weeks the tracks appear slack, steering all over the place on the lawn and not very good in the house. Is there any way of tensioning the tracks please ??
Regards Joe

Hi Joe

First welcome to the forum. Now for your tracks have you tried removing a link to tighten them up. Use a spare track pin or a similar diameter wire to drift the track pin out starting on the side with out the knurled end.

Thanks for quick reply, guess that's what I'll have to try. Looking at it you can tell one track hangs much lower than the other.

Hi, I am just finishing my T 72 and notice that the tracks are 99 treads long, as they are supplied in packs of 5 it will be quite easy to overlook this and make up two lengths of 100. I wonder if this was your problem.
