I agree with the ones saying to keep it .....Just stud it with all Double backer's like (Mack-ster) did you wont have any issues and it will be a lot cheaper and you'll get the same results why waste all the extra coin....? JMHO

From a fellow NH rider, go with the Storm 150 and 96 Mack Mega studs. Great setup, no issues. Really hooks up well. I ride both NH and VT, works well everywhere! 3400mi and still looks good with no tear outs.9d58ff3080c31b6376bc1281255ac87d.jpge4d8edb9c80ae87fa0e26601cb112e65.jpg

Does anyone have experience with using the screw in type studs on a 1.7(ish) track?  For example a Talon C45 with a 1.77" lug, then adding the screw in stud.  I am not sure if the track lugs bend too much on hard pack, resulting in the stud on the tip never making contact or if they are a good combo. I do enjoy a backwoods or field blast when appropriate, so I tend to favor slightly longer lug tracks (1.5" - 2").

I'd put a 1.75 Hurricane track on your Gade, & not even look back, oh yeah you wouldn't even have to worry about studs with the Hurricane track, just wouldn't need them, that track hooks up incredibly well, minus any studs!!  :righton :righton :ridedoo:

I can't believe more people aren't telling you to just stick with this sled. I've had that track on a 2016 Renegade, a 2018 Assault and a 2020 Assault. Total milage on all 3 is probably around 12,000 miles. No tears, all still looked like new. Traction on icy corners was fine.  Traction in packed snow was better than the 1.25 ice rippers I had previously, and in deep off/trail riding, I never got stuck.

There seems to be a difference between the track on the Assault & G4, Skidoo spec'd a different height due to the tunnel design. The G4'S are not doing well with the IC due to ice build up testing lugs? Not sure, I rode a friend's Assault with the IC & liked it, I'm just concerned with the lug's tearing.

That would be the difference between 2 ply and single ply. Polaris always uses 2 ply for durability no matter the price difference. If a certain track is only offered from camso in single ply, they go the extra mile and get them custom made for production models and parts inventory.

You can order the 2 ply from them. Just go onto the sled they come stock with, go to parts fische and order that track part number.

Cobra heats , is soft so durability in sub par conditions is not good and is an absolute speed killer . Get rid of it .

in my experience with 5000 miles on a 1.6 cobra i would have to 100% agree. mine did not take dry frozen groomed trails good at all. track got too hot and started chucking lugs in those conditions, on the other hand i sold that same track with 8-9 missing lugs to a buddy who put anther 1000ish miles on it last season and he had no complaints  ;)

We had a problem with torn lugs on a 1.6 IC on my 18 850, and I was careful. I had always read about the lug issues and swore it was all from the ice build up. Every time we took a break, I banged on the tunnel with a mallet and knocked the ice out, still after 3 seasons and about 3500 miles, I had 3 torn lugs. We replaced it last year with the 175 Hurricane. Wow, what an awesome track. I would recommend this to anyone wanting an aggressive non-studded track.
