Great for where I live. The sucky part would be having to run through a mudhole. These don't look like they would shed too well.

hopefully they have a sidecap on the production model? snow or rocks getting in there would throw off the balance. Maybe they just need a downward sloping cavity so things get pushed out when it rotates.

--edit- yeah, or just a combat vehicle.

But if you turned a corner quickly, wouldn't all of the mud fly out?
