i was thinking that when you used single or round backers with that much horespower you would want somthing more rigid, thats why i was thinking of going with double diggers, does anyone have experience or has run double diggers on there f7 or f7 snopro?
do you think the pattern of the singles vs. the doubles, what woul dhav better hook up?
i broke off 7 stud boys and bent 1 real bad i also tore out 1.5" of my shaper bars. but it's not the studs fault it's mine i had to of hit somthing because they were all in the same place. other wise i loe them.
Studding is a personal preference. If you are the guy that is spinning your track on every corner and on the pavement and rocks and dirt. I don't care if you have 300 studs, they will bend, break and tear out. 102 studs is a little light for 140 hp, but if you take it easy you will be fine. I personally had 168 studs on my 01 800 ZR and never lost one in 3000 miles. I had 2 slightly bent when I sold it. Take care of your studs and they will take care of you.
I have 170 studs 1.25 Redtips, thats a pattern that Arctic Cat and woody's put out.It puts studs in the closed windows of the track right over the hyfax.I used square plastic backers, 600 miles, no problems. Would like to add more, too much power!Snowhunter
153 1.45 megabites in a 2-3-4 pattern using double backers on the 4 and two of the 3s and single squares on the 2 and the other 3. Semi random spacing. 7 1/2 Shaper bars.
I love the setup so far but haven't had much need for the studs because of all the powder! At least I can make it up my friends driveway now. The shapers make a big difference in the soft snow.About 200 miles on since studding and no problems.
Studs are almost a must i got almost 500 miles so far and i noticed that i need studs baddd!!! Iride a lot of trails and they definately hook up a lot better with them.im gonna run 102. Woodys megabits with round backers.
