Re: studs on track life?

Studs effect on track life... directly correlate to how and where you drive your sled! I always stud my sleds and I have learned the hard way (more than once) that you can never have too many studs. Some people claim they get away with 72 or 96 studs... I have never been able to make a track with less than 144 studs last longer than 1 season! I ride as hard or slightly harder than the next guy, but I live in MN and the snow conditions aren't always ideal. If you plan on studding, do it by the books! STOCK SLEDS: 440-500=122 to 144 studs, 600-700 = 168-192 studs and anything bigger, no less than 192. More power = more studs!

If you stud accordingly, your track should survive several seasons.
