Some enginerds have built a low cost version of an existing skateboard/snowmobile hybrid. It’s basically a skateboard with two tank treads replacing the truck assembly. Even though they might have even used drills to power it, it’s still a step above this, but lowering the cost also lowers the perofmance, as the Sno Deck seems to have a top speed of 2 MPH. It’s no Scarpar, that’s for sure. The best part of the video is when the Beastie Boys cut into the super lame OPM Heaven is a halfpipe song. (Q: Sugar Ray wannabes, how lame is that? A: Very!) Then the action kicks into… well, low gear. These guys can barely stand up on damn thing! Also, look for their semi-embarassed “Engineering”battle cry. Catch the vid after the jump.
This is the original, high performance, bone breaking, concussion causing version, called the Scarpar. This thing has some power, and can go upwards of 35mph.
More snowmoblie hybrids
Just in case you are keeping track, you can actually buy a snowboard with a snowmobile device attached to the back, and from more than one company! They have names like the Powerplank and the uhm, PowerBoard from Jimmy D’z, who must be a distant relative of Jimmy Z.
