The advantage of using tracked drive is that it is highly rugged and can traverse uneven surfaces with ease .

The weight gets evenly distributed throughout the track surface .. i case of a bot with 4 wheels .. The weight is distributed at 4 points ..

look at the posts in the link .. you will gain a better understanding
