    All this talk about the xr7 cut problems and peoples attempts to fix it involve setting the pitch to 1/4" Is everyone setting this lower in the front than in the back? I was led to believe that on the XR7 the pitch is backwards and should be lower in the back than in the front. When I tested one I know it was lower in the back than the front, and it cut extremely well. I was just wondering if this could be part of the problem since I believe the deck is not designed to have a forward pitch, yet it seems everyone is still setting the pitch forwards and not backwards.
