Anvilus Machine Works is pleased to announce that
technical reps from Tyng Labs and Anvilus survived their
intrepid foray into Tri-Pact HQ today 2/8.

The dread T-34 and stealth Hetzer demonstrated their
blazing speed over the snow covered Tri-Pact proving
grounds.  Only one Tri-Pact vehicle (a Russian-made
1/8 scale amphibious USMC LAV ???) ventured into
the frozen wasteland.

On a technical note, the Anvilus sprocket-drive plastic
conveyor track system and the Tyng friction-drive flexible
belt track system both performed well on asphalt and in
snow, and did not throw track.  All grass was covered by
snow in balmy MD.  Will Montgomery also spun the new
steel conveyor track on the test stand.  Frank and Steve
recorded photos, video and technical specifications.

Frank, thanks again for hosting.
Joe
