Tank tracks are hard I've heard. See if you can buy some tank toy and then just hack it.

As said above, those can be hard to find. However there are many alternatives depending apon your requirements.
Small tank treads can be made pretty easily from the chain of a bicycle, You can buy it in custom lengths from some
hardware stores I think.

Good luck :)
Motors and Electronics at a great price :)
Had to close my ebay store due to ebay shenanigans :(

stay away from the tamiya tank tracks, they strech and the gears strip easily.
