Hey guys.
I decided to pick the track this week & was looking close at it (The new ripsaw).
I am just curious what everyone thinks the best way to pick it is? What I am looking for is a good pattern. I know that the track repeats every 3 lugs. Should I repeat the pattern as well?

My last track had 192 picks in it, but some guys tell me it will be too much with the Ripsaw.....& that I will need less.

Any & all opinions are welcome. I want to know what everyone has found regarding the patterns.

Thanks guys.

Nope... All windows open.... 1 clip every 3.

I think I could still do 170 though. Not sure what I should do? :dunno:

The best, most effective studs in the track are the ones directly over the slide rails.

I agree that the closed window pattern is best, but that is not an option.

I think studboys patterns work very well....take a look at their website. It even gives you the exact measurements.

Cool. Thanks guys.

I will have no problem with length. I'm running 1.45 megabites in the ripsaw....which is 1.25". I can try to put a bunch by the slide rails, but I am using double backers this year....so, we'll see. Hope I don't have clearance issues with the heat exchanger.

They were ripping out? The reason they were doing that is because they were biting.....(that is what I want). Usually, the only reason a pick will rip out is because you are not using enough of them for the power of your sled. The picks will bite, but if they are the only one biting in a large area,.... they will rip out. Sounds like you were under-picked.

I have been using the megabites for over a year now on my other sled with no problems. In fact, I prefer them to regular picks because of the flat face. Kinda like a combination chidel/carbide. (I suggested a carbide picked Chisel to Woody's a year ago by the way... Don't be surprised if they come out with one... they liked the idea). Of course, I will not get credit.


By the way, I did not need advice on anything about the picks... but thanks. I just wanted opinions on a pattern for the track because it is a new lug pattern.

Thanks guys. :div20:

You can't stud the outside belts on Fcat's anyways, unless you want even bigger problems. :doh:
