I doubt it since those things weigh 1600 extra lbs. That is a lot of weight down low to keep it on its wheels, er tracks.

Those tracks actually LOWER the center of gravity of the car cuz they weigh so much.

Here's the specs on the tracks:
http://www.mattracks.com/w105M1-A1_Spec_2009.pdf

Not positive on which model they are since they make a bunch that look very similar, but just to give you an idea. Anyone know what the cost of these things are? I want them .

I've never priced the car/truck ones, but they will run about $3500 for an ATV. Manitoba Hydro has a few sets on their linemen's trucks, iirc, they were about $12k.
