Don't discount 4 years of rolling in a creepy empty cargo van...

Don't forget the pedosmile and mikes hard lemonade... Currently I don't have my license or a car due to the special hell that is the "adaptive" licensing procedure in the state of VA. I'm waiting till I turn 19 to get my license as it drastically simplifies things. But anyway, I'm on the lookout for a Jeep Wrangler YJ (1991-1995) with an automatic to serve as my daily driver through college. Once I'm out, I thought about getting a second YJ to be able to thrash as a trail rig; but I'd rather put that cash towards a SMB. A cripple in a van is just sad; a cripple in a SMB, now that's just badass.

That's the Segvator SegTrax prototype. The folks at Segvator took a standard Segway X2, the offroad segway model, and mated it to a pair of mattracks ATV tracks. The pictures on their website show the tracks before they were lightened and narrowed, as seen in my earlier photo. The only drawback is that the added weight of the tracks reduce the top speed of the unit from 12.5 MPH down to about 6-8 MPH, and the range per charge from 16 miles down to about 8. But the beauty of them lies in the fact that you can traverse over loose surfaces that would ordinarily bog down wheels.

For reference, here's a standard Segway X2:

He has a pair of studded tires on separate rims, five minutes to swap rims. He has a mower too.

Thanks, I have some friends on the west coast, so if/when I get out that way I'll definitely swing through your neck of the woods. I saw you on ABC nightly news not too long ago, that is one cool rig you got there.
