The new sidewinder as we all know is putting down some serious power. Most i know opt'd with a 137 x 1.25 track. Cat guys have been doing this for years on their turbos, anyone have a suggestion as to what we should run? Ive done a lot of research and I was thinking of running 192 woody Trigger studs with Performance StudStar all in one CNC backers. I'd like to see what others are planning on running. I am sure I'm going to be on the ice 30% of the time.

Woody's recommend 144 Gold Digger 60 degree with big nuts 1.375; I'd opt for the 1.450 and 7 degree backer plate as well however i ran 144 in my 2012 etec800 and barely hooked up then...

Anyone have some good stud patterns they want to share. And do you plan on studding outside or just center?

sounds nice , here's mine from last year and might be this year..
**SJ** what length stud did you go with? In another post you warned us to stay away from the center with anything longer than 1450's. Your picture looks like a porcupine and your studded in the middle of the track.

Im new to the sidewinder here, but not to turbo sleds. Dont even waste your time with 1.375 studs. 1.450 will be better, but i plan on running 1.575 megabites on my 1.25 track. Penetration is key. Me and my buddies have been running this stud length combo for years without trouble. Also, stay away from the center of the track, there is no support there. Studs closer to the rails and idler wheels get pushed into the ice instead of deflecting.

I am changing the track on my 129 to a 1.5 so it will move some snow on those loose trails. I will then probably put 2 HNT Stingers per bar with the XPL backers. I will stay out of the center 3 inches. Not sure on length yet or which protectors to get
