    I'm curious how studs on a ctl help with hilly terrain. I have an hoa I would like to bid on next year. It would be perfect for my asv. My only concern are a couple of hilly drives. The rest is flat.

    I run studs on my RC 50 and it works fine.. I got the studs from Bair and have no problems in the hills.. You do have to watch out for how you plan your turns otherwise on new blacktop you may scratch the surface a bit...Try a 3 pont turn instead of a skid turn...then we take the studs out in the spring without any damage to the track....we run 120 studs per trac up here...ussmileyflag
