treads rock!

There are many many reasons treads are not a good idea . . . but driving-into-a-house capability is one of the good ones :D

Ripsaw is a beast! I cant believe that little guy is capable of such power. VERY impressive :) I want to make one... It looks like so much fun to drive :)

And for the wheeled vehicles. They must get some very interesting fuel economy :P Pretty impressive :)

Ripsaw has been tested for the US militairy for about a year (maybe even two, i can't remember) and it has never thrown a track.
I saw this in a video about it somewhere on the internet.
