    I have a new 9'2" dxt that I have not plowed with yet... I noticed that when its down an I hit it for vee position it only comes so far, when I raise it a bit then it will go into full vee.. is this normal? Also when going into scoop the right side will stop and lag behind left side going into scoop.. is this normal? lol Thanks...

    The V yes. It's spring retractable. So raise it or move forward while putting it in V

    My wings tend to operate at slightly different rates. Really makes no difference. It's a result of slightly different rates of friction in the angle cylinders and center pin.

    Dog leg? I'm guessing one straight and one wing forward?
