If you’re an off-roading enthusiast you’ve probably already seen those kits that let you replace your truck’s wheels with a set of four tank treads for tackling any terrain. The Track N Go is the same idea, except that you don’t need a garage, a lift, or any kind of mechanical know-how to install them. You just drive your vehicle onto the treads, lock them in place, and away you go.
Using a treadmill-like approach, the Track N Go treads are even powered by your vehicle’s tires, so you don’t need to make any Frankensteinish modifications to your ride to use them. Once you drive up onto them and remove the loading ramps, you can point your vehicle in whatever direction you want to go, and drive.
Together, the four treads have a much larger footprint than your vehicle’s tires, which means you’re less likely to sink in mud and snow — and it’s impossible to get a flat tire when rolling on tank treads. The Track N Go’s $US25,000 price tag is a bit of an issue if you’re only planning to use them on the occasional weekend adventure. But, when you realise you’re no longer reliant on congested traffic-filled roads, how could you not justify a set? [Track N Go via DudeIWantThat]
