Maryland Blizzard of 2010! --> Mattracks!

We have been getting pounded with snow recently, which lead me and my brother onto a wild search for a Snowmobile, and somehow we came across this! .. http*://ww*w.mattracks.*com .. Here is a direct link to a video: http*://ww*w.youtube.*com/watch?v=zwzUJJUy9Gk .. Anybody heard of this before? How about on a Smart!?!? Ps: i'm too new so I cant post actual links.. please remove the '*' signs to reveal the actual URLs.. Sorry!

You need a 4x4 vehicle for them to work correctly, as it states on their website. I have never seen them being used.

OK. Why the tracks on the front? Wouldn't skis be better?

Skis are great for downhill (gravity assist), and work well on snowmobiles where there's an abundance of power. But skis require pushing, while driven tracks pull.
Hard to brake going down a 100% slope as well.
This vehicle is designed for mud, sand, snow and gravel...Skis, would be worthless beyond snow, but a lot easier to install!!!

Top speed would be in the 40mph range, depending on the temperature.
