    I'm sure some of you have seen something like this before but I thought that it was cool. 4 wheel steering selectable to go with or againts the front wheels. Diesel and few miles! It's claimed to be geared so low that it'll only do 30mph, I wonder what gears are in it?

    Looks fun to beat around in.

    Yeah those aircraft tugs are pretty cool, they can pull like nothing I've ever driven before. They're slow though, I mean, you can drive them fast but the motor gets spun up really high.

    Its all about the planetary hubs that it's got, ZF diffs are pretty tough
