    I just picked up my new Rev 600 H.O, I am debating if I want to pick the track or not. I am looking for peoples opinions on wether or not it is a good idea. The trails in my area area groomed and somewhat packed, very good riding when there is snow. I am thinking I will wait until my warrenty is up before I decide to do it, unless someone gives me a good enough reason to do it now. [8D]

    I would get 96 studs. with the 600 H.O. your going to need some hook up and braking power. how long is the warranty?

    Stud It unless you ride in the Mountains. My buddy has put on about 75 miles on his Rev 600 SDI and is going to stud asap. I have 96 in my 600 XCsp and will be adding another 24. The benefits far out way the drawbacks.

    I have a new 04 rev 600ho and I want to pick mine for next year. I find there to be a traction problem especialy when braking compared to the old chassis desing

    I have never driven a sled with studs so I don't know the difference. But I have also riden just fine without them. Depends where your riding. If they got snow, there not going to do much good.

    I am considering it now because where I moved they run the river, which I have done before, but they don't get much snow.

    What I don't like about them is your putting holes in a perfectly good track.

    Myself my next track will probably have bigger lugs.

    People who stud always will, people who don't never will.

    I feel if you have a 1 and 1/4 inch lug height then you dont have to stud to get good performance. Its a toss up with the higher lug height. Where I ride its 70 percent ditches and then across fields. The ditches are always deep and the studs dont do much then. I have a .80 lug height on my indy trail and I would never stud it for where I ride. Also its lower on the HP. than most too. I like how (berserker) put it.

    How many miles do you huys get on your tracks that are studded? My buddys only get a year, if they do alot of riding. Not sure how many miles though.
