    Skid Steer on steroids! Not so great on off-camber, I suspect.

    That think is awesome! Took me while to realize it has no steering, it just brakes certain wheels to turn. Looks pretty easy to drive too.

    I'd like to see what kind of snow that thing can make it through.

    Edit: Answered my own question. Go to about 9:00 in on the below video. This seems to be some kind of promotional video. Sounds like it has built in tire inflation, and it even floats and can travel 6 KPH over water. You can even go fishing!

    I bet they haven't even got tubeless figured out. I'm not buying one.

    Why is it that the Russians get all the cool toys?

    Seeing as we're being Russian and motorised, here's the ultimate fatmotorbike.

    How come the Russians get all the best toys?



    BTW that bike answers my question of how wide a tyre needs to be. It may also answer a certain wheelbase question...
