there is not a huge amount of snow here every year but enough to want studs. is 96 enough? what patterns do you have best luck with?

96 is a good amount

2 studs per pitch. space them out so they make a nice V or ^ shape look on woodys or any other stud site. they have printable templates.

as for drilling

I have always ran 96 studs the only sled i ran more on 192 i think had so many tear outs it wasnt funny. Many guys will say its gotta go in a v pattern or double backers or this or that. I listened for years then found the pattern Ill swear by forever it is as goes..

I run 96 Woody's Gold diggers(1.325") with aluminum tall nuts in a 1" Camoplast track. I run 2 per bar, with 12 scratch lines. Bites very well. I paired it up with 9" woody's dually carbides.

There's a general rule that says 1 stud/HP. Your sled is right around 100hp, so 96 would be perfect. I think the 'V' pattern is one of the more common ones...

as long as you alternate and dont lop side it with to many one one side, you want a even patten look at you sled first and lay it out before drilling, i just put 9? in my 2in track oh go down middle no out side picks!!!!

ya the outside would seem to flex and not do much good. especially only with 96.

I have about 130 HP, at 96 bite more than adequately for me! I guess it also depends on the stud condition, type and size...
