In defense of the Kats, its not like ther the only ones making a tread system. The problem of it not conforming will happen with anyone who has more than 4 fixed wheels. Why, if you have 6 wheels the middle wheels will pick the front ones up as you go over the ramp. So its not like the Kats are facing this problem alone. If you consider a low CG and treads in general should anyone get in there way they may just drive on top of them.
Instead of a half track I’d of considered 2 per side like some of those arctic vihicles, but then again is it worth all the additional weight and work?
