I was thinking about long tracking my short track to get better off trail speed and traction. what track do you guys think is best? Thanks for your advice in advance.

Seeing as you live in Sask. your best bet would be 1.25/136. There are no mountains around here and seeing the snow conditions we have had here in the last few years, I haven't seen any snow deep enough that a 1.25 couldn't pull you through. It should also give you great hook up on the hard pack.

go with the long track you will get better hookup on and off trail.  I have a 02 MC 500 w/ 1" predator track and I beat a 98 ZR 500 on a lake race!!

I put a 136" x 1 1/2" Camoplast (1999 Polaris RMK 700) track on my ZRT600 to make it a MtnCat. The 136 1.5 is lighter than, and has way more traction than, the factory 121 .875. I intend on putting on a Camoplast 136 x 1 3/16 Challenger for next year.

1.5 for me.  Deeper lugs=more grabbing penetration therefore faster track!

Screamer, you are thinking "quicker".  For "faster" you want less weight, so the smaller/shorter the faster.  I agree the deeper lug will generaly be quicker since you hook up harder, but on top end(if all is equal)the shorter track/smaller lug will creep by a deep lug....
