My research is for a mountain application, however might apply to other riding styles as well. In looking to replace my (worn-torn-lugs) track I noticed my year of 2003 is 2.5 pitch for drives/track, while later years went to 3 pitch. Looking at the Camoplast and other venders/distributors, such as Tracks USA, most of them now are in 3" pitch. 2.5 is a limted supply and variety. I wonder why.

I don't have any ratching problem with my (rather loose) track. I have read about ratching with the later years; just wondering of the fact the longer pitch might have that tendency. (less grip/surface area on each lug the driver touches, etc.)

If I convert to 3 pitch, I assuming later drivers on my shaft, then shop for the right track? to bad, since I've already mounted new stock drivers on my new crommoly shaft-ready for install.

Cat were the first to go 3 now they are all following. Talked to the dealer here as to why. He claims it was for weight saving purposes. Apparently its good for 3 lbs on a 162 inch track.
