The problem is they suck at virtually everything except snow and sand..... and are extreemly expensive... nor are they DOT approved.

But they are very cool. You can order them in any bolt pattern you like so fitting them to a Subaru wouldn't be difficult at all.

I love that thing....

The tracks on the Subaru are much smaller than the Mattracks versions. The smallest track setup they have is for a vehicle with 10,500 GVW. It probably much too heavy for the EA81 shown in the video.

it depends on what type of track you have whether or not they suck in everything but snow and sand.and they would have to be the atv version.much smaller than real version.a guy that i occasionally work with had some on his diesel last year for a deep woods job he was doing.very cool and well built.insane amount of articulation possibility out of them.

cheers to those guys for adapting them to their roo.i have so wanted to do that for years now.since some of the last posts about these.i regularly see atv's up near preist lake with these.same folks i think each time.but never talked to them about them.they sure do book through just about everything i see them go through.mud included.and trust me.rednecks like their mud.:lol: :headbang:

I want them too!but I dont think the bank would let me take out a 6K loan on tracks for a subaru...would be neat.It would also give me a reason to stay with subies for a while...
anyone have any more info about the hatch?

Tracks would be neat to try.....but it's amazing what a Subaru will do when chained up on all four. The only problem then is ground clearance.

Nice. :)

That just looks like it would be too much fun in the mountains.

I bet with drilled hubs and a lift one could also adapt some of the tracks for a 6 lug truck pretty easy as well.
If only there were more $$ on hand.......
