    Damn...Thats Cool /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Bet that thing would be fun in a muddy hill climb. Wonder if he can steer it with just the tracks /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    If he made some sort of a flotation device around it, and added paddles to the tracks, he could have a pretty fun waterski /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    of ice fisherman to there fish houses, and to pull the
    houses on and off, some of the cracks in the ice get pretty wide where a normal truck couldnt cross,

    So what drives the tracks? Is it a differential or hydraulic motors? How does it steer? Does it have steering brakes?
