I particularly like a blurb about a toy near the end of the article.

Interesting concept. I can see a lot of potential uses for it...

Especially those occasions when southern Cal turns from desert to lake within a matter of hours.

Wonder what its suspension would say to rockcrawling???

Yeah, I was eying the clearance; we can have some hellacious muck ruts up here, even for an ATV.

Body Damage is Cool
Interesting but I'd say it looks more at home in water than on the road. 30 mph on water <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/evil.gif" alt="" /> Driving it 80mph on the hwy <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/zombie.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />

Yes, it's interesting, but can you imagine taking that skyscraper into a corner at 80mph? Can you say "On your side in a jiffy"????

And I imagine it's a little difficult to get turned around on a narrow trail at 30' long.

I wonder if the water jets would work in snow? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

I'd rather have a hovercraft plus one of those nifty little Rokon 2wd trail cycles on the balloon tires. No worries about shallow littoral work or soft sand beaches trapping skinny tires.

I wouldn't know if water jets would work on snow (doubtful), but I can tell you airboats do AWESOME. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

With twin diesels, I have a hard time believing that thing'll make it to the street in most states.

Badazz none the less...
