Default factory tracks

For the guys who are cutting down tracks to fit their hawks do you notice a difference when the lugs are all the same height vs the stoack track that is curved an higher in the middle. I guess it wont notice so much in the soft snow but how about the hard pack does it want to stay up straight when cornering?

It's kind of hard to compare an aftermarket track to the stock track , especially the newer Hawk track that has fiber added to it .

The Hawk track is like a dirt bike tire that bites into the corners where as most snowmobile tracks have to softer compound and flex no matter if they are curved or not . More like a flat tire rolling under in a turn .

I really miss the Hawk track since they don't make one in a 153 . With a softer track it is a lot harder to maintain high speed carves or turns without washing out . I don't think I've even high sided with the current track , the stock one has thrown me for a loop once or twice .

That maks sence. I was thinkin of pullin out the 121 and tryin to find a 136. But maybe i need to look 4 a snow hawk track. I do mostly trail riding and am thinkin of upgrading the stock rear suspension as well. It feels like a pogo stick. No recoil if that maks sence.

I would go with the Timbersled 137 convex track. Much lighter and hooks up great in all conditions
