A 121 with a Cobra will actually perform better in powder than a 136 ripsaw. I have run them back to back.

The Cobra track generates lift like a mountain track, where a stiff lugged track like a ripsaw just trenches.

If the condition is powder the cobra is the way to go. A 136 cobra should work really well.

my opinion is you would really like the 1.5 camoplast intense track. It's more a paddle track so it doesnt trench at all but it also hard closer to the track so it really hooks up good on trails. I live on the praire so must snow is in drifts so getting to them has me driving in low snow and i never over heated. I also checked the hifax and was in very good shape.

I'd suggest a deep lug 121" track with studs personally. I used a 121" track that has 1.65" lugs and installed 144 1.75" studs with tall nuts and absolutely loved it compared to the previous studded 1.25" I had before. The studs take a lot of the abuse in the lower snow conditions / road crossings so your lugs will look like new. I put about 1000 miles on this setup this winter with absolutely no issues, all the lugs look like new and there are no bent studs. Of course if you come out of every corner with the throttle to the bar and the track spinning you may destroy a track like this on the trail, you just need to use discretion and it will hold up great. Each to their own I guess but this was a great set up for my mod rev, I could cat walk the sled across a field of fresh powder, good times!

The lugs look like brand new. There was a little fraying on the sides of the track but nothing that could be considered a problem. I did not gear down at all. I believe the track was only a pound heavier then the fusion stock track. The track really hooks up on the drifts and groomed trail. I am very very happy with it.
