Dan, you should at least try to go 2 per bar, which is 96 studs however your could get by with 1 per, which would be 48 on a 121" track. You could try going on the Woody's traction products page and they have some pattern examples on there to look at. (at least they used to)!

I was hoping to only use like 50 to 60 studs and skipping a window I made a personal pattern ans am wondering if it would just add a traction 3-2-0-2-3-0-3-2-0-2-3-0-3-2-0 and so on I think I have enough for the whole belt if I did my math right. has ne one else made a homemade pattern?

Try this one, it's for a 48 stud pattern. 2 per bar, skipping every other window. I hope the link works if not I could e-mail it to you. I think this would be the best way for you to go to keep everything balanced. Make sure that the first two studs in the first row are closest together then on the next row space them out a little bit and the same for the third row. Then start over again, this will give your more "scratch lines" and the most traction possible for the studs your installing. Hope I explained that good enough, if not hollar back and I'll try steer you in the right direction! Good luck! grin

Iam not looking for huge gains just some added traction in hard pack snow. If I wanted huge gains I would have bought longer ones and put more in. I got these studs from an old track so no lose for me! So. Im LMAO cuz you cuz wasted a reply.

haha! im like that too just gotta see it for myself!! how long are the lugs on your track? i would go about 3/8 inch longer than the lug if your doing trail/hard snow riding otherwise if your just using it on Washington wink for fishing id go longer....

its a trail sled to so gotta keep them short, we dont use it very much on the ice just a few of them nice days that I dont feel like drivin the truck all over the lake. it has a 1.25" track and I am thinkin that the studs that are 1.325 will fit the bill just fine. 3/8" longer than lug the stud they would have to be 1.75" studs more like dagger to me and they arent cheap!

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.

      Edit: Sounds like the 2nd moves to a 1st in the ducks clear the 2nd round of the playoffs. Not sure I would have paid that price.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
