Is this a REV or ZX. They did have some clearance issues with the REVs and the 1.25" tracks with studs. If I remember correctly this was very difficult to stud. Also when you stud a 1.25" track you need to use a 1.375" stud. I have found them to be suseptable to bending and breakage.
On the ZX i believe they have a front exchager protector.
not a problem on the rev, not at all. alot of people said you cant do it, but that is simply not true, all you have to do is install deeper tunnel protectors, which is a bit of a job ill admit.
i personally did it to my sled and my dads last year, work great, i put 5500 miles on my sled and bent two studs, i know when i did it too, climbing a large rocky hill. any way go for it dude!!
