<<<I've experienced the same problem. Not enough grip on pavement with studs. No way to improve unless you have an unstudded track. >>>
Speaking as one that has been stuck in the middle of a road, I can tell you with a degree of certainty that an unstudded track is not the solution either. As far as backing up, the manf. likely didn't taper/angle the back side of the rear carbide inserts - causing them to dig in trying to back up.
<<<And this isnt on dirt its on Cement and Asphalt >>>
The experience I was speaking of was on a damp 4 lane asphalt road - and because my sled was just sitting there, stuck, oncoming traffic came scary close. I left the shoulder in plenty of time to cross, but the guy in front of me slowed down as he approached the bank on the far side - causing me to stop....... with no clue that getting it going again might be an issue. Another lesson learned the hard way - and damn sure never forgotten!
Mines an '89. Just upgraded the motor to a 331. Best ET of [email protected] mph with 100 shot of N2O. Runs 12.1 on the motor. Still has air conditioning and all accessories! And 60,000 original miles with the original paint. I run at New England Dragway here in NH.
