Never slid one that much, but got a bit of sideways movement a few times.

Aah, fond memories of power sliding Scimitars in Norway, despite the studded tracks.
I remember being in a long chain of sliding vehicles, whilst waiting at a ferry dock, and each gentle crunch sent the one at the front nearer the water :D Funnily enough the crew had legged it, but it stopped before it took a watery dip.

Was good studding tracks at Tidworth and find most had fell out by the time the striker came off the boat in Norway 8O

We studded ours in Tidworth then drove the wagons to Marchwood :? :?

Trail of discarded studs down the M27 etc...........

You studded your own? How vey vey working class.
In the seventies, ones tracks were delivered 'Prêt-à-Porter'. :wink:

TBH, I don't remember stud loss being a problem, but then I was probably pissed. :)

I remember we ended up with enough studs to do one track only, or have 2 per link on each, then someone found if you threw them at people it hurt :lol: So we had one wagon with no studs, and a few of us with bruises :D

Even more so when propelled via Black Widow catapult!! :wink:

We had to stud normal track a few times. 5 studs per pad, drill the holes then push in the stud gun and fire away. What a crap job. :cry:
