Sometimes, even tracked vehicles need extra grip.  This year the prairies we don't have a lot of snow but it's still cold, which means the lakes (and sometimes the rivers) freeze up perfectly smooth.  Conditions like these are ideal for skating, but not so much for snow machines. One solution is to stud your tracks!  Snowdog tracks are designed for studs, making it easy to add them.  Each paddle has a series of available stud positions, and each paddle has an alternating pattern.   For our first attempt at studding tracks, we're using Kold Kutter brand studs, 5/8" in length.
