Extreme AMPHIBIOUS Russian offroad vehicle: Aton-Impulse VIKING-2992
4x4xAMPHIBIOUS, VIKING combines the best of extreme off-road with internal floatation and water-jet powered amphibious capability.
The ATON IMPULSE VIKING-2992 is a unique special purpose vehicle, ideal for heavy industry, exploration, arctic use, flood-relief, NGOs, rescue and emergency services. VIKING is the only amphibious off-road vehicle in the world to have passed through certification to meet UN/ECE regulations for unrestricted ON-ROAD USE.
VIKING's world-leading amphibious capabilities are based around its purpose-designed flotation construction, centrally mounted engine and powerful water-jet propulsion enable it to ford open water at speeds of up to 15 km/h. The vehicle's wheels may be optionally engaged while in amphibious mode, providing unique ability to cope with shallow water and to transit the challenging littoral zone, where other vehicles commonly become stuck in soft mud.
Off-road, VIKING is overwhelmingly superior to comparable amphibians, with cross-country ability akin to tracked vehicles. High maneuverability, turn-over resistance and endurance provide safety and comfort in remote or hazardous areas.
With a curb weight of only 1.46 tonnes, riding on giant 1300x600x533 tires, VIKING's exceptionally low ground pressure enables it to "float" on soft snow surfaces and avoids damage to sensitive environments. VIKING has independent pneumatic front and rear wheel suspension with adjustable clearance and a tire air-pressure adjustment system operable from the cab while driving the vehicle.
VIKING's is designed for security and endurance rather than high speed, which in any case is hazardous on rough terrain. Top speed on-road is 50 mph at 16.8 mpg; off-road at 11.8 mpg, currently limited by the tires (cost $700 each) speed rating. ATON IMPULSE is bringing out new, higher-speed rated, custom tires, as well as bullet proof tires. More powerful engine models will be fitted in future models.
The VIKING-2992 will for the first time be available for international purchase in late 2012.

Mustang Juniors 1965-67 powered promotionals
Built in 1965, 66 & 67 these were used for dealership promotions to bring customers into their showrooms, normally being dragged by their kids! As the kid took test drives the parents were easy picking for the salesmen. Often they were given away in drawings that would give the salesmen contact names and addresses to call on later. They were made in electric and gas powered versions and would be considered a Go Kart by today's standards but would actually be better described as a powered promotional. This video just covers the Mustangs but they made many others from 1955-67 including Mercurys, Plymouths, Thunderbirds. I even have the factory molds for the 65-66 Mustang and 1957, 58-60 T-Birds. I hope you enjoy this at it is my first attempt at making a video. Go to http://www.jrcentral.com for more information on powered promotional cars. And if you are looking for parts to restore one or build one from scratch a list of available parts can be found at http://www.jrcentral.com/resources.html

Tires vs. Mattracks
This is a short comparison demonstrating the difference between tires and tracks. 44" tires with Dana 60's and lockers would not get you through the snow like the Mattracks. Yes, they are more expensive, and not for everyone, but if you need to get through snow, mud, sand or any other soft material they cannot be beat.
