do you like to run studs or not?

I believe something called a "Cobra" has been the grand consensus thus far for boonditching.

the cobra is a great track for general trail/offtrail riding and doenst hurt top end speed.
but i dont think i would heavily stud a cobra track.

the ripsaw is a great hardpack track a little trenchy in the soft snow, but it can handle studding well.

Predator is better as a trail/off trail track.
Staggered paddle is good in powder and holds well on hard pack and it's not a trenchy track.

Of course you'll get a bunch of answers lol, everyone has an opinion. I believe your Polaris Rich's friend so I'm going with Ripsaw because I know he trail rides. The ripsaw is an excellent track for the trail, it just doesn't do well in deep snow which gives it a bad name.

I would listen to Mud on this one. He's way smarter than he looks!

Thanks for the responses guys....and gal!

I am leaning towards the ripsaw, most of my riding is on the ice so the track will get some studs. I was at the Novi snowmobile show and seen the camoplast tracks with built in studs anyone have experience with these??

If I were you Echo I would buy the Ripsaw and use it a few times before you stud it. I know a few guys around here that love the Ripsaw and say that you really dont need studs.

Unless the trails are icy, then obviously they are needed. On a good packed trail though there really isn't much trackspin. It hooks up pretty good.

you have room for a 1.5" lug which would bring you to 1.75" studded
or do you have to stay in the 1.25 lug to stud use 1.5 studs it?
you can change drive wheel size to make room also, but then have to run more tension to keep from ratcheting.

PS....i dyno'ed mine to hit the sweet spot with that particular track on to within +/- 50RPM's....thats another key

Anyone have an inside line on the where the best place (cheapest) to find the ripsaw.... SW Michigan works best logistically for me, then I could pick it up and save on shipping.

Your choice on that one, every third is supposed to be a bit lighter and cause less wear on the slides, but does not so well in very low snow conditions.

For trail riding, get every window clipped.

^^ Agree! Although Zeeletits may say his extensive research has found NO clips wears best.
