I have seen trax in person. We discussed using them on my Hatch back in the day. I saw the spy footage of this and it didn't do justice to the real "toy"

Where it appeared to be "troubled" is actually a steering technique. Considering the horsepower being placed through them I thought they performed quite well.

I noticed/stated that to my co-workers that I was showing this to last night. I really wish we could have come up with the money when these first came out. We talked about putting them on my Hatch.

Aaaaaaand, did you notice the perfect camber? :brow:
I have done so much research on these things its not even funny.
Website, they have adapters that fit a 4x137 #10 lug, so we could drill them
out to fit onto our old Subes lug pattern, we just need the ATV version, which
is capable of holding up to 3500 lbs.
If you want to know more you gotta contact a rep, and these tracks run
anywhere from $4k to $7k. :eek:
