So going to be re-studding my sled this week. I am trying to make my sled the baddest true trail sled around these parts. With that said, I am prepared to give up some trail manners in favor of 500’ drag performance in order to do this.
I am considering going 6 studs per bar - 4 in the center and 1 in each outer. This would total 324 studs in total.
I’m using 1.8” Woody’s Triggers on my 1.5” Intense track. It just sounds like a lot and I’m trying to wrap my head around it. Just wondering if anyone else has run that on the trail and how it went. As a side note, I already have sore heat exchangers on order lol!

Yup sounds a little excessive and expensive. However you don’t know until you try. A lot of guys do suggest you can have to many and it being like the bed of nails theory.

But that’s my plan. Run angled 2 sets of angled backers in the center of each row, then a single standard backer on each side of the outers.

Have you seen those backers that look like chisels? They are wide body and the stud goes through them so theoretically the stud will take the beating from trail riding but the chisel can help in the snow drags. I can't find a link but they looked bad ass.

How often you race? I have been crazy enough to install the chisels the night before and remove them the day after. Or just have two tracks, one trail, one race lol. Swap them out when needed.

I run 240 1.86 Triggers in a storm 150 track in a 6 4 6 4 configuration with two sets of double backers in the middle every row. Personally I've always liked 4 per bar with 2 in the middle and 2 on the outside each row (all singles). I bought the sled with the current studding configuration and it works very well - I wouldn't want anymore than what's in it though. That's a lot of rotating mass - when it comes time to replace the track I will likely go with 4 per bar(all singles). The goal would be to keep as many studs close to the rails as you can while maintaining as many scratch lines as possible with angled backers of course. Anything closer to the center of the track furthest from the rails I will try running standard backers for braking.

here is my trail sled. I run half chisels, half triggers. If you want the chisels to last, just put in one size shorter than the triggers. They won’t have much weight on them on concrete and asphalt that way. But you get the benefit in snow of the flat surface. Mine are all the same length… but to be honest I have not trail ridden with this set-up yet. But it hooks pretty good

Trying to avoid the chisels, as many circuits around here disallow them in trail classes… and I agree.

Why don't you just go 4 per bar at the 1.8 length? wouldn't that be an upgrade over what you have currently?
I currently have 4 per bar with the 1.6” triggers
