This 100%.

2x on a 136" is 108 studs, not 96.

108 is OK, but I personally still prefer the 1 per HP rule.

I have a 3-2 pattern on both my LTX Vectors. This comes to 135 studs. Pretty much the 1:1 ratio.

And 1.325 length is perfect. You WILL NEED a couple chunks of old(or new) hyfax riveted to the factory rear cooler protector, or YOU WILL wreck it.

Does this pertain to the 2015 model??? I'm pretty sure the guy I used to install my studs said I had enough protection on mine but now I'm wondering!

Yes applies to all LTX sleds. Apex, Rage, Attak, Warrior, Vector. Gotta protect that rear cooler.

Here's even with added hyfax. You can see the fins were still nicked a bit. I'm sure this happened on a very harsh hit, because there's been no further damage.

Yep. And if they think you're nuts, or full of shit, show them this.

The track will hit the factory protectors if you bottom out. Not a big deal if you don't have studs. Adding studs requires more protection. About 1.5" in total. The stock Ripsaw is a soft track and just folds over when it hits the protectors allowing the studs to reach the exchanger. I went to the local hardware store and purchase some 3/4 by 3/4 square aluminum tubing. Did some trial fits then had a buddy weld them up for me.
