    Hey I have a 36/16 mini fastrak 1year old 55 hrs and we just installed a set of arm extensions and now it seems to be very 'twitchy' not as smooth as it was before we installed the extensions we set them identically but when i was setting them the arms felt loose so I gave the set screws a twist -i figured that i had worked them loose-
    Thanks for any help.....

    Sorry -been in the sun all day-they aren't screws At the base of each control arm there is a bolt with a lock nut --Once it added the extensions I sat down to get the feel and the control arms felt like they had more 'play' in the than before I started so I gave the lock nut a 1/4 turn which seem to tighten up the play now the machine seems to be twitchy/jerky basically just not as smooth

    OK they are not set screws-On the bottom of the steering lever is a thru bolt/lock nut-that was a little loose-so I gave it a 1/4 turn...

    OK, I understand what your talking about now.
    You will need to adjust that locknut to your liking.
