it seems like the best option is to toss rubber band tracks... at least thats what i hear
if your frugal and cant afford to replace them you can try super gluing them, but i suspect you will need to staple the bands together to be sure.
also you can hide the height issue by putting them on some groundwork and pushing it in to the ground... that's the easiest way to hide it IMO
or maybe get a sharp knife and try slicing the pads? make sure your insurance is up to date first.
