Track N Go tire treads

 

For those that live in areas plagued by long winters, icy roads, and the ever-accumulating snow fall, you know how obnoxious driving can get. Chains are great, but putting them on is a hassle. There's also the option of studded tires, but as soon as you hit deep snow, well, you’re outta luck. So what other options are there? You could just wait out the snow, but that could take awhile. Or you could buy a pair of Track N Go treads.

The designers of the Track N Go system are AD Boivin. They’re better known for marketing power-sport products for snowmobiles and motocross bikes, and now they're bringing that expertise over to automobiles. Track N Go is basically a treadmill system for your 4x4 pickup truck. You simply drive onto them, lock them, and get on your merry way. To us it looks like it’s a universal application, as it’s used by a Ford and GMC in the video below.

Though we’re not sure when the Track N Go system will be available for purchase, it’s something worth watching for. Pricing is still up in the air as well.

Nissan DeltaWing racer test at Sebring (video!)

Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: Design, Transportation, Videos

The world of racing may be getting a facelift, if Nissan gets its way. Nissan has developed the DeltaWing and set its sights on Le Mans. It'll will be entering the DeltaWing into the 24-hour race, not as a traditional racer, but as a demonstrator. Nissan will be showing off what racing could look like in the future.

The beauty in this futuristic design is that its half the weight of a traditional Le Mans racer and has half the aerodynamic drag as traditional racers as well. Though it’s a funky design, we like seeing companies thinking outside the box and innovating on traditional schematics.

Alongside the Le Mans debut, Nissan will be releasing a barrage of YouTube videos showing off different aspects of the racer. Here is the first of many tests the DeltaWing will be put through. Enjoy the “Wind Tunnel” clip after the jump.
