    Track N Go wheel-driven vehicle tracks - GIF, video, patent

    Wheel-driven vehicle track system. Around $25,000. Gimmick or gold? No idea. Looks great in a GIF, but my first concern would be it getting stuck. At least with a snowmobile, you can dig/wrestle it around to get it unstuck.

    Looks like there's some patent history here, most notably US patent #8776931:

    Wonder how long the steering components will last when using these attachments for anything but straight line use.

    Steering, yes and what about the thin side walls on modern tires. At that price at least bolt them on as thy have proven to be resonably successful.
    When looking at all toys at least look to keep the parts count down.
