These machines look so good on tracks. Of course it almost never snows here, so you don't see them other than in pictures.

I wish I could get some for the buggy, but the wife says I can only use one set at a time...




Where at in Central Idaho? McCall area?

When the knock on the door said "Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms" I naturally thought it was a delivery......

Yes McCall....will be here full time when I retire!

First ride went really well other than the need for some surgery. Lower bar on the nerf bar met up with the track as the suspension compressed. It then met up with my angle grinder when I got home. Trimmed the lower fender flare too....gee now I have room for bigger tires when the tracks come off for summer too....! As far as the ride.....amazing. It will not go anywhere fast(25 is about top speed) but it will go anywhere. Trail, powder, off trail....no problem!

That looks like a blast! Did you have to take a lot of plastic off the fenders?

I cut the lower nerf bar about 3 1/2” and the fender about the same at the bottom and then tapered it to the edge of the top nerf bar. Worked really good as far as I can tell. Long ride this weekend will prove right or wrong!

Always wanted to try tracks here in Colorado but so far V-Bar Ice Chains do the trick most of the winter. We don't have 4' on the ground where I live, but there are some 2' drifts here and there that will swallow up up a Commander or Renegade which is what my wife and I ride. Did you notice much power loss with the tracks given the added weight and gearing reduction...?

Didn’t really get to go all out last weekend due to the nerf rub. Weight does not seem to be an issue....gearing....I am guessing “comfortable” top speed will be 25-30 MPH.

Taking it back out this weekend to really get a good test of the Camso's. Last weekend it seemed like it will go about anywhere with the tracks. Picked up my new trailer this week---never had an aluminum trailer before-- talk about easy to move!
