I noticed that my newly purchased ZR 6000 has staggered dual ski carbides, I assume these are from the factory? Are they a good set up? Do they prevent darting?
I was looking to replace them with Woodys Dooly 4" carbides but if these work I will leave them on.

The stock ones definitely help keep the darting in check, but push a bit in everything but firm trails. I run them through break in then i put on dual carbides runners.

Get rid of them, put on some Bergstrom triple point carbides and a set of their ski shims. You won’t believe how good they work, and you can thank me this winter

I run Snow Trackers and couldn't be happier with them.
It's like power steering.

Enjoy the new toy

How many miles you got on them? Considering a set myself, but Im curious how they actually wear.

I have over 10,000 miles on my set and will have many more trouble free miles left in them before replacement.


I run the aggressive set too btw.

I’ve not heard to much about the snow trackers, where did you buy them, and you use stock cat skis with them?

I think 6" duals are too aggressive for my set up, I have no track studs

Are the ski shims hard to install?
Thanks

no. Some folks take the rubber pad that goes under ski and put them in hot water, to soften them up. The shim goes under that pad, it puts more pressure on the rear of carbide.

Yup, I do it often.
Not a big deal.

I don't cross or ride on a bunch of paved roads but they do react well when crossing.

Maybe I’m missing something on their site. It’s not real clear which one I would use on my 20 turbo,

I’m a Snotracker User also. They are excellent in every way and very inexpensive to just stick new everlaster blades on them if you feel they’ve lost a bit of bite on ice. In Canada a set of Everlaster blades is like $70.I go semi aggressive but my sled is heavy on the front the way I have it setup.

Ski alignment goes a long on way on the procross. Most of them are out from the factory and that will cause them to dart. Correct it and it pretty much is non existent. Those factory staggered carbides are not very good either. Cat stopped sending them on sleds now.

Do you know what they install now?
