i have always made them tight but not tight so they sink in to the track just tight so they wont come off i dont see anyharm if the went in the the track a litle though if you go to far it will damage the track and they will rip out easier
Flush with the track has worked for me on over 7 sleds. I made the mistake of using red loctite once and will never, ever do that again :cussing:
You can't remove them if you ever need too. We studded a buddies sled and he insisted on using loctite with those bad Sabers of a couple years ago, you know, the ones that wore down to nothing. We couldn't get them out because of the loctite and had to use a torch to heat them up. The nylon in the lock nuts is suffcient, I have never had a stud come loose using lock nuts with no loctite.
