But not in the dead center or the studs will hit tunnel. You should get a Templet from your Cat dealer.

I am studding for the first time as well on my F7 SnoPro. I am putting on 144 1450 Megabites in Woodys Double Digger Pattern. I will let you know how it goes.

I added 156 Woody's 1.075 Gold Diggers using Woody's pattern and then studding the three empty lugs. I didn't want to take any chances with that rear cooler. For the limited riding I have done, sled seem to hook up pretty good.

Here are some tips.


1)Use quality carbide studs.
2) I personally have had good luck with aluminum backers but some guys swear by the plastic or nylon.
3)Stay away from the edge of the track and the middle, where the tunnel protector is. Be careful when drilling not to hit your suspension components.
4)Measure twice, cut once.

I studded a track for racing and decided to stud the closed windows on the 1" track. I can see no reason that this isn't going to work. I raced last weekend with no troubles. This forces the stud into the surface under the sliders simmilar to clip studs. they didn't seem to rub the hyfax at all because the head of the stud is pulled lower than the surface of the track. Anyone else doing this? If you can think of any reason this has issues, please let me know. Thanks
