I am going to be studding my F7, and was wondering how tight I should tighten the nyloc nuts onto the washer. Is there any type of torque or will the slip clutch on a cordless drill work?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

F7

DO NOT tighten till the backer bottoms out on the shoulder. That's too tight and it will lead to tear outs. Tighten the studs so the heads squish down flush with the surrounding track. This way you're not deforming your track too much and your wheels will still roll freely over the studs.

just put in 170 saber studs they say 33-35 INCH POUNDS. works out to like 3 foot pounds. thats what i did and it seems ok. If u go any tighter they will start to sink into plastic backers. If u use aluminim backers u can go tighter but dont overdo it.
