Anybody have experiance using studs and double backers designed for 2 ply track on a 1 ply track.  Looking for people that have done  this.  I want to use all angle double backer in my new single ply track and I don't believe they make angle backers for 1 ply tracks.

 

Thanks for any info.

Heads on studs designed for a 2 ply track are smaller, as well, some have a shoulder that the backer bottoms out on and it would not allow for proper compression even when torqued.

I am run the smaller head studs (stingers) in my last three 800 ETEC.  the one has over 7000 miles the other 3000,    with no problems.  That being said if your a guy who has to grab a  hand full in every corner you might.    I run a 4x2 patter all doubles  nothing on the outside belts with good luck so far and  last few yrs have not been great for  snow cover on the trails for riding  in Mn, Wis

I would only recommend using single ply studs and backers other wise you are asking for trouble. I have a season on my double backer single ply track studs (1500 miles) and they work well. Why angle backers, are you going to drag race the sled?

I have done it... as the big head and backer studs tend to slow a sled down.    As long as you use double backers, you should be fine.  Not sure as the track gets to be 5 to 8 years old.. might have some issue then if your using extremely long studs..   but for 3 to 4 years it will be fine.

Regular Stud boy's don't have a step on them, more of a taper. I installed one in the 1ply track on my Cat turbo, and it seems to be fine. Has a 1" head, but even if it was larger I would only use double backers in a 1 ply. I'm cutting down the Cobra track to 1.25 and putting 141 doubles in it. You might not want to ride behind me. Like djm says, there is less drag with the smaller heads. 96 1.375 Studboy's with 1/2 aluminum nuts and aluminum backers weighs about 6.5 lbs.

Wow great info guys.  Thanks a lot.  The angle backs give a little edge on the drag races and I like to hook up as much as possible.  Also considering ill be pushing over 200 hp.  If I can get 2 years out of the track and studs I'm good with that.

 

thanks again

I've talked to Terry at Fast Trac about running their regular Top Gun IIs in a single ply track, with their XL round backers and they've done it on several sleds with no issues.

I've been using traditional style hornet studs with standard double backers since 04, many miles on sleds with single ply tracks since they came out with no issues.
