Performance trail track would be the ripsaw. Studding 144 minimum for the xcr800. Personally I'd just stud it, studding a machine makes for a whole different animal.

Go with a predrilled if you plan to put studs in it.
As far as which lug, it depends what kind of riding you do.
If you do a lot of high-speed riding on hardpack or on lakes you dont want a 1.25" lug. That track wont be able to withstand lots of high-speed riding.
I know of a few people who's tracks delaminated on them, and Camoplast told them that the 1.25" isnt made for high-speed lake riding (Camoplast recommends the 1" for that).

I have heard nothing but good things about the ripsaw, if your a trail rider then deffinitly stud it. You can change it yourself, if you have a socket set, a set of wrenches, a set of circlip pliers, and a little mechanical skill you can do it no problem, pulling a track is not a big deal at all, dont be intimidated.
