when you say stability, do you mean you were chine walking? i.e side-side?

probably putting it in a hole would help yes.

the resident sr4 peeps will be able to advise better than me on what to try after that.

as you don't have PTT you'll just need to play with weight balance and fine tune that way i guess, shouldn't be a big deal though.

cheers
