Number of studs has nothing to do with ripping out.

This year I tried the Woody's performance pattern. I am not really sure if it is any better than the traditional V pattern yet. All I know is that my Polaris 600 Edge X is a blast!

The no. of studs DOES mater! If you do not have enough they will pull threw.
only 40%of your studs are on on the ground at any given time. not having enough will cause excesive stress on the track and weeken the area the stud sticks threw. It may sound like bull but that is the truth.

Comes back to something I was wondering if others have thought about. How many people are storing their sled on one of those tiny dollys to make it easier to move around when not in use? Ever consider that the weight on the back of the sled is all concentrated on that dollie? Or, more to my point, the weight of the back of the sled is resting on maybe the 3 or 4 studs that are resting on the dollie? My bet is, that if someone were to rip a stud out of their track, that would be a major contributing factor. Just a thought
