A tracked vehicle produces a pressure no more than 3 psi on the ground by increasing the number of contact points on the inner surface of the track. The stiffness of the track is also selected to minimize bowing between the idler wheels or rollers. The track is therefore kept substantially straight between the rollers so increase the efficiency associated with transferring power to track. The drive sprocket is positioned above the ground so as to eliminate complexity in the design and yet effectively transmit power to the tracks. Positioning the drive sp...


1. A drive system for driving a vehicle over a surface comprising:a flat track having an inner surface and an outer surface; driving lugs attached to the inner surface of the flat track; a driver for driving against the driving lugs, the driver positioned above the surface over which the vehicle is driven; a first end axle; a second end axle; wheels attached to the first axle and the second axle; the driver, the first end axle and the second end axle fixed with respect to the flat track such that the flat track is held in substantially constant tension;a...
