Track conversion

been working on an issue...i have a '80 trailcat 116" x 15" track still the original and i'm wondering has anyone heard of a carage swap and what kind. I want to go to a 121" but not sure what to use. Also it has the rear shocks on the outside of the tunnel, was thinking of redrilling the mount holes and changing the drivers to accomadatethe new one



The old one still had the steel cleats and need more traction

I *think* theres a 116" rubber track you can use with the drivers you already have. I don't know how you could go to a 121" without big changes to the tunnel and all the suspension.
A rubber track swap was fairly common on those for lighter weight and increased speed.

If more traction on ice is what you're really after you can stud the cleated track, drill out rivets from the cleats and replace with studs.
