Adaptive Snowmobile Track

172 Views, 3 Replies

I'm trying to model a track for a snowmobile suspension. It needs to be able to adapt to movement in the suspension. Does anyone have any suggestions how I might do this?

Thanks, Mike

Hello Mike, I work for a company that builds "BIG"
snowmobiles (Sno-Cat's to be exact) and we use an endless rubber track too. I
have tried many different methods but none really can mimic the dynamics of a
track.

I was messing around with the track idea, and Its
pretty cool.

I posted my example in CF under Adaptive
Track.
