    i dont think you really need sand paws for trailing on sand. just something with some decent lugs would do. these are just stock losi rock claws.
    it dont get much sandier than this. lol good times

    LOL you got bogged down pretty hard... I think I will need sand paws to distribute the weight and keep the truck above the sand instead of sinking like yours appeared to do ..

    I intend on trailing alot of dunes and a few 100% sand trails in an area behind a beach.. I have a feeling that with the weight of the SCX10... Sandpaws are gonna be needed.
