IMHO, you asked for too much money (and put up too little money). Like OED said.

Neat idea, hope you can still manage to bring at least some smaller version of it anyways (start a fund raising website and pump it)

just a data point - my 2006 BioTrak had aluminum track treads, and did not seem to suffer from corrosion issues. I washed it off when I got home after it spent a week+ on the Playa.
