Wheres this guys government funding????

Ok just found this on autoblog today....AND IT IS FREAKING AWESOME. Whole new meaning to being trail rated and rock climbing...the thing has the ability to basically hump 7ft boulders if it wanted too. Way cool, but wondering where his military funding is and why they don't have transports like this already. Hell, NASA's gotta put this guy to work on some lunar and mars rovers.

That machine is insane! Having said that, I don't really understand rock-climbings appeal.

I dont know why they are posting this as "new" on autoblog, that guy has been using that vehical for rock climbing at least 5 years that I know of.

Reguardless its still some pretty cool shit.

Youre exactly right. I have a Jeep Wrangler rock crawler with a 5.7 Vortec in it, but I have to say it has nothing on this thing. When you get into it (crawling) its hard to stop. If I put all the money into my Focus that i've put into my Jeep i'd probably be in the top 10 fastest on the site.

Yes but the jeep is def worth it b/c theres tons of fast cars out there, not many that can climb rocks. Btw speaking of Jeep...rumor is that a new engine is coming for the 2011 model year.....possibly a small 2-3liter diesel. Should find out next week at NAIAS. If it does come and a wrangler finally gets good gas mileage...I may be in the market. As I'm sure a ton of other people will be too.
