King Tiger Track Direction Question 05 Aug 2017 12:31 #1

Hey y'a!!!!

Just looking to try and figure out the correct direction on the KT Tracks! In the attached pic (this is at the front, or drive sprocket), the "teeth" on the track are pointed UP. Is this correct, or should they be pointed down?

I'm pretty certain that is reversed, the triangles should point down.

When in doubt find a photo.

I have seen photos of actual vehicles with tracks running in opposite directions, so what to worry? :idonno

Those aren't the same tracks as you have. Make the arrows point up as they come over the drive.

And I think you have them on the wrong side. :soldier

I agree, they are on the wrong side, the 'open' hole is always on the inside-side of the tank. But do they point up? I see some build threads like this one at Hyperscale

and they are pointing down

How do you know they were right.

Either way they work. You think Hans and Fritz installed them and said, "Scheiße, they are on backwards...everything off!"

Put them on, promise not to call you out on them. :soldier
What's the instructions say?

Here, look at this. same tracks
