For the guys who have the newer challenger track machines, do you experiance drive wheel slip inside the tracks? Or does the larger drive wheel remedy this? We have a 65c that has a good undercarriage and proper spring tension, yet at times/certin situations experiance some slip on turns. We washed the windshield off with a garden hose one day, and when we left the farm it went straight across the road at the end of the driveway. Aggh.

LANWICKUM....Yeah when we went to steer the machine onto the road at the end of our driveway, the machine wouldn't turn due to the slippage of the drive wheel in the track. really surprises ya' when you are not expecting it. This model has only spring tension, we checked the measurement of the tensioning rod aginst the spec in our service manual.
Leighbrook.. that makes sense, we didnt notice it really in field operation when conditions were less than ideal!
