I got my Panda hobby M109A7 today and when I seen the the muilt piece metal tracks with metal pins and indi center guides my joy was flushed down the toilet what are my options because I refuse and I mean I refuse to deal with those metal tracks
One option Im looking into the T161 tracks from Kenetic's M3A3
does anyone have them that they dont need want or need I can trade the metal track from the M109A7 for them
Any help will be greatly appreciated

Cant say if they are any good or not, or if they fit the Panda kit and vehicle you have, but AFV Club does a set in styrene

Why don`t you contact Lucky Model/Kinetic and ask for selling their Bradley track sprue? It`s Sprue H. Take into consideration that the M109A7 hull might be longer and you may need 4 sprues.

Well unlike friul tracks, the Panda metal ones are not easy to drill or work with at all
