I notice the brace height is 7.5", should be 8"....

Contact martin customer service they havent earned the reputation as being the best in the business for not resolving there customers problems. I dont know if theres anything you can do to resolve either problems thru tuning I think you got a factory misque

This one is fairly easy. The string and/or cable need twisted up. I assume you have Elite limbs and Furious cams. Start out by putting about ten twists in the string and 5 twists in each cable and see how much effect this has. Add more as necessary.

When you get it to specs check it for draw weight.

Check back with the results.

Scpterman30 or Sandsquid would be the two best guys on this. They'll be on here pretty soon.

You got it..
As A/A increases brace height decreases
simple geometry at work (and I hate anything "math" related)

I dunno about putting myself in the same Category as ScepterMan... I'm just a home-schooled-hacker that is trying to keep a family of 4 shooters, with at least 3 Martins a piece, shooting...

bfisher is correct. Basically you just twist up the string and cables 1/4" all the way around. But listen don't put to much enfasis on the specs; they are just ball park figures and they are not set in stone. If it shoots fine...leave it alone and just shoot it.
