I misprinted the length. I corrected that post, thanks. Total length is 1.98 with 1.825 installed length according to their chart.

do you have tunnel protectors? That is the length of stud I was looking at for the 1.5 ripsaw and am getting conflicting info about the need for additional tunnel protectors.

doing this math...you have .600 gross protection...... look at the rubber that contacts the protectors...if solid...should be good at .550 over with s tight track

I thought so, thanks. I think that's the route I'll go. I'm leary using anything less with the hp on the Sidewinder.

I'm going 4/2.
Megabytes 1.45.
I have run that pattern on my MCX 290 Apex for 5 years with no issues.
Also ran it on my Supercharged RX 1 for years. No issues.

not trying to tell anyone what to do...but I feel the 2.86 is more prone to tear outs than 2.52 when under studding...just my 2 cents
