Might pick up a used 600, does this need tunnel protectors? I've had several firecats & never needed protectors for those, just checking. Also, thinking between 96 & 144 picks @ 1.25" Thanks

If it has a 1" or shorter track I think 1.25" studs are too long. I would use 1.080 or 1.180 at the longest. Peace, beeler

The stock track is a 7/8 track on the 2000 ZRT 600. So if you want to stud the stock track a 1" or 1.08" stud is long enough. I've had no issues with my studded track. It has scratched the tunnel a couple times when I bottomed hard with it, but 5500 miles and no major issues.
