Tank tracks. Sources? Theory?

Hello all.

 

I am looking at tank tracks at the moment, and I want to ask two types of questions.

Firstly - theory

I am looking for a rescource which explains stuff like the theory behind tank tracks. What does good and bad design like? For model robots, does it make sense to use bogie systems etc. I'm guessing there is a lot of stuff on the net, but no idea what to put into google to get the results back that I am looking for. 

Can anyone throw up any useful links?

Second - Sources.
