Agreed, 144-196, and what size lugs do you have on your track?

They sound like a good height, but i would go with 144 studboys or woodys.

Give Woody's a call, they have brand new patterns this year, Where you don't have to skip any rows. I think the pattern i'm going to go with is 151 studs.

I was told that 102 is recomended. that leaves n o blank spots. They also said not to put anything on the outter part of the track.

I wouldnt recommend putting any studs on the outside of the track either, they tend to rips out easier.

102 really? that seems like a small amount for a 700

I run 102 in my 03 F7 works really well you get a little slide in the corners but the hookes up very little track spin.

03/03 F7
01 ZL/ 99 COUGAR
96 EXT :D

if you overstud then you'll need longer/better carbides to compensate or else, yes, your sled will push in corners.

IMO I hate a sled that pushes, I'd much rather have one that the back end hangs out all the time :)

the firecats are made to be light sleds and therefor dont like to have alot of stuff on the track you can put as many studs as you want on a 900 and it wont change a thing. My dealer does testing and he said that an F7 with 102 studs is 4 mph faster then one with 144 studs. and with the 900's it was just a matter of the more you put on the more traction you got and the faster you will go.

I guess that makes sense. More power behind the 900, compared to a very light and quick 700, My FCAT seemed to be extremely light pullin it back in the garage and on the trails u could almost pull it over under the right conditions but really? How much extra weight could 50 studs be ya know???
