As far as whether or not to stud, read this thread:http://www.snowmobilefanatics.com/snofan/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4709

if you want to stud it for a safety issue thats one good reason, i would not get more than 96 in it. two alternating down the middle.

I'd go with a .9 or 1" track with 96 studs in either the trail or aggressive pattern up the center belt. Will make a HUGE difference in that sled.

I bought a Kimpex track that had the stud holes from the manufacturer. It was only a few bucks more and well worth it if you decide later on that you want to stud it.

Studs are big bucks.

If you likesliding the ass end out of a turn then don't stud. This is just my opinion but I like studs not matter what.

If you just stud the center belt, you'll still get some slide out on the corners. Hardly any if you stud the outer belts, but not quite as much if you don't stud at all.

IMO If you get a new track you should ride it for a couple hundred miles before studding. I have seen people stud new tracks and then tear out a few the first time out.

If i were you i would save the money and just buy a 3/4 or a 7/8 bed. If you buy a 1 inch then you will have to buy 1inch or more studs plus backers just to get the right penetration. If youy use t-nut studs then you will have to buy even longer ones. When studs get so long they tend to "lay down". A good setup for your machine is a 3/4 inch track with 96 to 120 .875 studs with .230 backers. And yes use the 96 stud "v" pattern. Good luck!!!
