I am following along with the Abrams Tank tutorial that was posted in the forum. When I go to create the tracks for the tank, I am getting tracks created Criss Cross or something. I used a static wheel in place for height as I am matching up an existing tank track. Not sure what I am doing wrong after following along with the tutorial and rigged the tank from an old but good tutorial. Any suggestions?
I figured out my problem. I had the drive wheel aligned backwards. Have a new problem. When I create the tracks everything is perfect. I can drive my rigged tank on a smooth surface. But when the tank goes over a hilly terrain the tracks fall off the wheels. I found some treads but don't quite understand how to fix this problem. Any suggestions?

The problem that the track jumps of is usually because the tracks goes under the terrain. If you make sure that you have more room between the boogies and the terrain it usually helps. Be aware that this may happen if you go in to a to step mesh also so that the upper front wheel(s) penetrate the ground. By all means you should prevent the track from being forced through the terrain.
