Cheb-urator is derived from name cheburashka and the terminator ( Arnie movie )
Cheburashka is a Russian cartoon animal with massive ears, the car bares a resemblance to this and it slays other 4x4 s off road, hence the terminator part!.

Logjam & others

I found your threads on karakats very interesting, I didnt know they were heard of outside Russia.
I have been researching off road amphibious vehicles, karakats etc for several years.
I am designing my own amphibious ATV and will start developing it soon.
I have sourced tires & wheels that may be of interest to you, they are 1250mm x 600mm x 22 inch and the rims are aluminium- see attachment-
I visited Arctictrans in Chekhov last year where they produce the karakat lopasnaya and sell the tires you mention.
Let me know if I can be of any help with tech or rusky translations etc.

lol - yeah - post up. Earth mover tubes, eh? I've been thinking, one thing that might help save trails is buggies that leave no tracks - that the old DC3 tires on buggies were better than we knew - that a 4 to 5 foot tall tire with light tread will get thru soft ground without tearing it up, regardless of how much traffic the trail gets. So lets see it!

Yes I am interested in seeing a light or floating 4x4 build.
I've got ideas and parts to try one myself but no time to work on it right now.
Pictures pictures pictures
I'm thinking Honda civic engine and tranny sideways between a pair of
Toyota axles with 18.5 - 16.1 Titan tires.

Theses are prototype rims,, im making all 4 rims different. the wheels were both the same size, i took them down to the water and they floated way to much, with all my weight on one side i could only sink the wheel about 3 inches, so i started letting air out of one .... so the smaller tube u see works much better then the big one, and its a lot softer , (harder to puncture ) so im going to go with 5 foot tall (the smaller one) ... now im looking for some kind of skin to sew to keep them round and flat resistant. any ideas???? thanks bob.

i dont plan on putting a car engine in this ,, this is a slow machine, to much power will rip the tubes and tube skins,, im just going to use a lawnmore engine.. it should do about 20 or 30 mph ..

I just bought an industrial sewing machine so i can sew the skins for these iner tubes.i already made the first one out of an old tarp, just to see if the pattern would work,, i got my pattern figured out now ( after a few atemps) now i need your help in finding something stronger then tarp ,, im thinking vinal like they use to make boat tops,, or leather but thats to much money, or swimming pool liner ,, your ideas would be greatfully helpful . Thanks Bob

there was a guy here in alaska in the late 80's making them out of conveyor belt material. He made a small atv that could cross water and glacier silt mud at will.

your skins look a lot like the "conveyor belt" I used to see - he cut the edges and folded them to make them a tire-shape.

Joke - - your axles seem very thin -

testing for floatation?
