Introducing the 4MC 
The prototype shown here represents the first of six development stages. Be part of the 4MC's story and become a Kickstarter funder to make the 4MC (development stage six) ready for low cost mass production, click here for details. The 4MC is the original work of engineer and company director Nick Shotter.   He has specifically designed the 4MC to get its rider through traffic safely yet efficiently. 

His interest in safety originated from being injured in a road accident when working as a London motorcycle courier.  The 4MC has evolved through Nick’s rigorous design process which began in 1989.  In 2000 the 4MC won a DTI Smart Award for a Feasibility Study. 
Journalists began testing the proof-of-concept prototype in 2009. 

The 4MC’s unique designs are covered by very robust patents.

The prototype shown here in the videos was built to prove the fundamental principle of the 4MC and represents the first of six development stages.  The prototype is very sure footed and is terrific fun to ride. The 4MC's development has now reached stage six and Kickstarter crowd funding is required to make the 4MC ready for low cost mass production.

Skid Pan Pursuit Trial
The 4MC’s grip is compared with RWD and FWD cars where the 4MC quickly catches each car in a pursuit trial. The cars were driven by the skid pan’s driving instructor. The 4MC’s filtering and slippery surface swerving abilities are also demonstrated.
