3. Triple-X Traction owner, Toby Lavender, used a trick optical center-punch tool to mark precisely where each of the seven holes had to be drilled. This tool simplified the job a lot. First, Toby located it over the template. Next, he adjusted it until he could see that the optical pilot was centered over the hole location. Then, he replaced the optical pilot with the punch insert; a quick tap with a hammer made the indent exactly where the directions called for it. We looked around online and found these tools for about $45.
