If you like it tim, im in love with it! I cant wait to see you slap it with a set of adair tracks and see wheather your ainti chiain wind up parts will be needed!
Tim brought an Argo 8x8 Avenger to river run atv park with the Adair tracks on it, and with out any ' track tuners ' on it ,and that machine never had any chain wind up issues the whole week end he was there.
In my opinion, it almost appears like Argo just kind of threw this model together. It's neat that they took some components from the Centaur, but I am surprised that from the design of the upper half of the body, they didn't do anything other than just the front of the firewall. and since there is less weight in the back now and more weight in the front with the larger engine, seems like the center of gravity is thrown way off. I would have expected Argo to have a more complete looking machine and possibly hydraulic drive if it was going to compete with the Mudd-Ox. I will say the front does have a nice look though, but it looks like a combo of a Mudd-Ox around the headlights and the molded grill in the Max II lol. just my .02
Thanks spookum ... :-)

Really looking forward to this and all the other innovations that the designers and manufactures are bringing to this market ...we are living in an exciting time from a technology and development standpoint and there is no doubt a lot of time, money, and ambition being invested by all the companies to deliver superior machines :-)

Hi andylmusic76...good observations and comments....in my opinion, styling have never been much of a consideration of any of the designers or consumers of these unique machine....these machines could easly be built to look like any other model either current or past, and if we were in another market (fourwheelers, side-by-sides, etc) style and apperance would start to be of more importance to the manufactures and we would start to see ever changing bright color schemes, crazy decals, fancy chrome accessories, etc....as i recall those efforts have always produced big no sellers for the companies, and today there is almost only one color that these machines are even built in (with very few exceptions)...not to say that all of these machines are not beautiful in their own way to some of us (i'll be the first to say that even my old MAX II with aluminum wheels, tracks, and a good coat of mud does have a certain amount of sex appeal...lol...do i have a second?)

i think that if you really study the collection of some of the best parts and features that ODG has to offer as well as the loads of new technology that this machine debuts, you will see some really innovative minds at work, but maybe not a lot of focus on style...
hi there do you have any pics of the track tuners,i never seen them before
