So reading this site today, I've been seeing ads for Mattracks. I was curious so went to look.

Mattracks | Truck & SUV Tracks

200-tracks.jpg


There are a variety of sizes and configurations for all sorts of vehicles. Now I'm guessing these are not road legal. And while it isn't horribly difficult to convert from tires to these tracks, it's not something I would want to do all the time.

Imagine the fun of riding through the wilderness with these on a CT. Perhaps I just need to get 2 CT's. One with tracks that can be towed on a trailer behind the CT that I drive to the wilderness. Then I would also have double the battery capacity. Though, the 500+ mile range is most certainly going to get much shorter if it is towing a trailer with another CT on the back.

Or perhaps I can just buy a large plot of wilderness somewhere fun to keep my tracked CT at when I'm out running around in the wheeled CT.

OK. Someone needs to get some serious income coming in to cover all these toy options.

That has got to be worse than driving around in low inflated super swampers for rolling resistance/drag on the motors.

Yes, rolling resistance would be horrible.

As for the dude using tracks on his M3, there are so many things wrong with his setup. For instance the tracks don’t fit in the wheel wells so he had extenders made that push the tracks about 1 ft or more out past the fenders. That can’t be good. Not to mention driving in snow with the low clearance the M3 has.

Don’t you have anything bettr to do than dump unrelated PR articles with little to no connection to CT owners?

Really, waste another newsgroup bits, eyeballs and fluster them with your dumps.

I remember looking at these a few years ago. (Looking as in "those are cool to look at", not looking to buy...)

Tires stay on the vehicle. They claim they can be installed in 15 minutes.

These look WAAAAY more practical for a CT than the Mattracks. And it would be relatively easy to carry them in the bed for deployment on site instead of having to do full wheel replacement. Thanks for the reference!!

I like the MATTRACKS mucho better. They have been around awhile and are proven. Not sure about TRACKNGO
