Something to think about when wanting longer studs. The longer the stud is the more it is going to flex the track. When you are putting the power to the track and the studs are trying to penetrate a hard surface the easier it is to flex the track forward, therefore you will have a raking action against the ground or ice instead of a penetrating action . To help overcome some of this you should use angled backers and make sure they are against the track lug. this will stiffen the area that the stud is mounted in and improve penetration. Studs that are a 1/2 inch to 3/4 above lug are plenty long enough, after that you lose unless you are in ground that is semi hard. Good Luck
