I use Unichains belts, an equivalent of Intralox. Next to the things Joe and 
Will stated I'd like to add that these tracks are the lightest available: 
0,27 lb/ft.
The advantage of slip between tracks and ground is that there is no need for 
a belt drive end stage, like with the TTS. Unless something gets caught 
between the tracks, my fuses have never blown and I have taken some steep 
climbs with (I'd like to add) good traction.

During the last Tank Expo it did throw track three times, probably caused by 
the lack of a tensioning system. Since then, I added a spring loaded 
tensioner. Check the picture. You can also see the wear on the tracks after 
2 years of occasional driving on pavement. Not too bad for plastic.
