no they are the best thing ever, I have them on my sled with 1.87 lenth studs and every one is straight. also a double backer pattren is real good. the are no more difficult to install than normal nuts, its nice to have a cordless drill and severl batteries on hand.
just wanted to make sure they weren't jerkin me, sounded legit, but just checkin. We are havin a slight melt down this week and weekend, then it will drop so then I will give a review, i have only been able to spend like 10min on her
I am curious as to how many studs you '05 F7 sno-pro riders are using. I know the track is narrower than the previous generation of sleds (13.5" vs 15", I believe) and I am wondering if that smaller width affects the number of studs used in this application. Also, I am considering getting an '05 F5 sno-pro (supposedly it has the same 1.375" deep 'paddle' track as the other (F6, F7) sno-pro models) and I am wondering what would be the reccomended number of studs for that sled ('05 F5 sno-pro). Have the studding patterns changed as a result of the narrower track? Thanks in advance for any info; I'm brand new to these Firecats (riding an '03 ZL600 EFI right now). I am currently using 120 Woody's Gold Diggers with AL backs on my ZL and am quite satisfied.
cats have a few more lugs on the track, regular 121/ 15 or 14 have 48 lugs. I am not sure how many the 128s have but there are more lugs on them. 96 should be enough, I would not recomend putting studs outside the rails.
