Truth in Advertising
or how pictures might confuse


After one too many comments about how SuperTrack was "...like a Hot Wheels track.", we decided to prove it wasn't. So we took these pictures and included them in our page comparing the various track materials.

Shortly thereafter, one of our competitors thought durability was a good idea and added the following pictures to their site showing a huge earth mover rolling over their aluminum track. (Pictures used without permission.) They also added the dubious statement that no other track could meet this test.

 

Has to be better, right? Well, you decide.

The inflation pressure of a motor home tire is in the range of 80 to 100 pounds per square inch since it normally runs on pavement. You'll note that the motorhome exerts so much pressure that it momentarily distorts the SuperTrack shape but causes no permanent damage. In contrast, the inflation pressure of an earth mover tire is the in the range of 8 to 10 pounds per square inch since it normally runs on mud or loose earth. That's TEN times less! You'll note in the closeup that the earth mover exerts so little pressure on the aluminum track that it sits on top of the guide rails.

Feel free to run over SuperTrack with your RV. In case you were wondering, it's not a Hot Wheels track.
