The only thing that conglomaration would be good for is digging snow tunnels.


How could one compare that to a SnowHawk. Rob would be laughing at that if he saw it :p

FZ700,

was that thing called the "SnoMoto" and came from Idaho?

I can't believe I didn't see that thign at Hay Days, but I was pretty busy for the entire weekend this year.

It's a neat concept, but it won't work in deep snow. The track has to be below the driver and there has to be some sort of a buffer at the leading edge of the track, like our apporach angles on our sleds and on the Hawk.

....in addition to all of that, there's always somewhat of a "this doesn't make sense" vibe when I see kits like these. If they will not perform well in deep snow, why do you need them? I used to stud my CR250 and run it on hardpack all the time! Many of my snowmobile buddies couldn't come close to me on twisty trails and I'm sure my studded CR would smoke that contraption too!

Just a thought.

-Rob

It looks like a track assembly from one of those 4 wheeler kits. My dealer had a pamphlet for thoose kits and i thought it said the kit weighed a total of 600pounds so a 1/4 of that at 150 is alot of weight.

Can't imagine you could lean into a corner with that flat track on the back... it even stands up on its own without a kickstand.

I looks to me like it wouldn't work well, And if it did only in a few inches of snow. It also looks GAY.

I think the track set-up came from Matt tracks. It was put together just for fun. There was also a sled with four wheeler tires front/back. That was cool looking, it used a chain drive. I will try to find that picture! Summer is too long, and winter is too short!!!!!!
