Track links Challenger.

Post by Rob » Sat Jan 28, 2017 12:06 pm

I've posted this on the Facebook site, but thought I'd add it here as well.
Currently my Challenger is running 82 links per side, but that number leaves the front idlers hiding back away from the front mudguards.
I'm going to run 84 in an effort to bring the idlers forward into a more scale position after the rebuild of the tracks.
Anyone else done this ? Any thoughts ? Any bad thoughts ?

hi Rob,

Really can't see it being an issue, will just mean you have less adjustability in your idler.

Might I suggest you run with 82 or 83 and see if it wears a bit and allows 84 to be run.

These tracks do seem to wear a bit and relax a little. Course your newlines maybe reduces the wear rate!!!

Cheers
Andy

Sounds like a plan, I just wanted to run the front idler in a scale like position .
