    I posted this awhile back, and didn't get much response, but i have to buy a new set of tracks for my S300 w/vts track setup on it. Prowler has what they call the EXT line: http://www.prowlertracks.com/rubber-tracks-prowler.htm#compact and i am seriousely considering trying them.

    Called McLaren to get price on nextgen tdf's (as we have them on our mt55 and t250 already) and they won't have any available from 90 days. Apparantely they have to wait for the mayflower to come over from china!

    I have to get new tracks within the next 2-3 weeks, as one of my tracks on my vts broke a steel belt late last fall, and i haven't dealt with it yet. But spring is upon us soon, and i need this thing moving. Any input??

    I had asked about the Prowler's and it sounded like some guys loved them and worked good and others hated them and didn't work good but I was told to wait for something else. My one track is really bad so I need to find replacements too.

    What link do you need? I know of some 58 link tracks and am waiting to hear of some other tracks.

    I run 60 link tracks. Let me know if you hear of something else!

    Went ahead and got the Prowler EXT, as McLaren was backordered and wouldn't be available for a couple months. We will see how they hold up, they look good, but looks can be decieving. Delivered on wednesday afternoon, installed today. Will be pushing dirt very soon, excited to see how they do. Stay tuned...

    How did the tracks turn out? We need some for our MT52 and have been looking at the Prowler. We have never changed them...is it very difficult?
    Any info would be greatly appreciated!
