The best all-terrain robot I've ever scene

This was mentioned in a post awhile back (http://letsmakerobots.com/node/27879), but I thought it was awesome enough to post the video here. 

 

All Terrain Vehicle

I want to build a robot that can go just about any where, this includes on flat surfaces, hilly surfaces, and stairs. I don't know how big or heavy this thing will be, but I do plan to drive it with either 2 or 4 black and decker drill motors.

 

Any suggestions are apreciated. 

Tank tread vs 6 wheel drive vs WTF!, which is better?

I notice that most people on this site like robots with treads. I used to be a fan of treads too but after seeing videos like the ones below I think there are better designs out there. Even 4x4 does pretty well when you look at rock crawlers like the ones in the 4th video

What is your opinion? What is the best or the coolest design you've seen for an all terrain robot?

Have you seen a design that is just "too wierd"?

Can move on any type of surface.
