What I would try is :
- Take the saw off the smart base, cut few pieces using the saw only, no rail no base. If the cut is smooth, then there is no problem with the saw.
- Put the smart base back and make the cut with the rail. If you still see the blade mark, try to play with the smart base to see if you can eliminate the saw mark

This is exactly what happened to me. I had the roybi, then brand new Makita 8 1/2. Took me a while to figure out how to test it. Both of my saws is perfectly ok without the rail and smartbase. I spent lots of time trying to figure out the problem, and adjust the smartbase until I can minimize the saw mark. But I can never have the smooth cut as without the rail. It's ok, I still can use the ez system for something does not require perfect cut.

I have tried the Makita track saw. I can make the perfect cut without playing with the system. and now waiting for my order to arrive my home. Sorry guys, I like the "turn key" solution.
