well i am finishing up my sled and i dont know how tight i need to tighten the nuts on my studs. i would assume tight enough to pull the head flush to the backside of the track, but i aint sure. please help and i dont have a torque wrench. using woody studs 1.175 and plastic round backers if that matters. thanks in advance :banana:

I'm no expert, but I just studded mine last weekend and seems everyone said to snug the stud and backer tight so there is no gap. I used an air wrench, and you could hear/feel when you got to that point after a few. Hope that helps

tighten enough to dimple in the stud on the back side of the track. i have had good luck with this method. you could use a cordless drill on the highest torque setting and check them by hand. so where are you at that you will be getting this snow you lucky bastard

What are the pro's and cons for both under torqing and over torqing?[/b]
I would think either under or over may result in increased pull throughs. I pull the stud head flush with the inside of the track. Only had
two pull through in 7500 miles.
