Ok, in this clip we're going to talk about driving on a hard asphalt surface. Basically, it would be nice if we could always park in the snow and never have to drive our snowmobiles on asphalt, but it's not always the case, so sometimes you're going to have to drive across an asphalt surface like this. It's not too hard on the rubber track, but you definitely don't want to full throttle and spin the track, because that'll tear the track up. And the reason we can -- this has metal skis, metal and aluminum skis on it. Some have plastic, and they'll have a plastic runner underneath. And that actually is removable, and that'll wear down on the concrete before the ski wears out. So you really, you're not doing any damage to the skis; you're damaging the rub bar underneath the ski, which is designed for this purpose. And this one has a metal rub bar, and it's totally replaceable, so you can drive quite a ways on the pavement before it'll wear out.
