Putting in 144 studs down the center of the track. Is two 6 inch carbides per ski too much carbide for that setup? Otherwise, how much carbide do you have for your sleds with 144 studs onboard?

I have a Gade with 108 studs down the middle and 9 inch shaper bars on both the inside and outside of my Indecision ski's, Turns like it is on rails, with zero push problem now

Are you saying 8 or 9 inches PER carbide, (16-18 inches of carbide per ski?) OR, are you saying 8 or 9 inches per ski?

6" each ski could work, depends on your chasis setup, ie. weight distribution front to rear, stopper strap etc all play apart. You can also check in catalog's like "Dennis Kirk" who sell products. They have studding reccomendations that are valuable guides. But remember they are just that, Guides!
Also remember your type of riding and your physical conditioning play a part as well.

Thanks for the help guys! I think twin 6 inches of carbide with 60 degree edge will probably be what I try.

With more carbide your sled will be tougher to steer. My brothers REV has 144 studs and we are running 6" on the outside and inside and it handles great. You dont want something too agressive for regular trail riding.
