Friction Drive vs Positive Cog Drive:
Positive Cog Drive: creates stress points on only the engaging & disengaging track lugs - causing failure & 'bouncy' operation.
Friction Drive: allows track to dissipate stress to over 50% of the wheel surface area - also, with no drive bars, track lugs stay damage free; increasing track life.
