I like Fast-Tracs. Stainless steel that is not soft. I have 2200 miles on mine and they are in great shape.

In the interest of long stud / track life, suggest three per bar. After trying so many different ones over the years, my go to studs = Woody's plus their large round backers. Saw disappointing life from the SS / Signature studs, Gold Diggers have been a solid performer.

I would do 3 per bar which works out to around 162. In my XCR I have Woodys 1.450 gold diggers. Also with going to that amount of studs, put a minimum of 7.5" or 8" carbides.

I have 108 down the middle. 1.5" Stud Boys in a 1.35" Cobra track. 4-0-4-0 pattern, all double backers. Its a great patterns and can go to 162 easily if I wanted to by studding the "0's"

In the 1.25 ripsaw, 1.375" woodys give you the 3/8" bite.
Just did signature series on the 120" Pro-S, 3 per bar 126 total.
