Lightbulb Turning a car with tracks

Just wondering how could a car turn with tracks (if the car was modified the body right). I'm not talking about the separated tracks for each wheel I mean one for each side. Kinda like the Ripsaw.

Tracked vehicles turn by using differential torque delivery to each track to initiate and than arrest a yaw motion of the chassis...and breath.

You send more engine power to the left track, less to the right track.
Left track "gains" on the right track.
Being rigidly connected by the chassis, this gaining rotates the vehicle in the desired direction.
Send more power to right rack to stop the vehicle rotating when you reach the desired angle.
