I have used proline sand paws and they seem to work just fine.

Remember, if you use them to loosen your slipper clutch or you may do damage to the diff.

If you are racing on a track I would reccommend step pins. Paddles are great for bashing around and just having fun sending huge roosts of sand but on a track they are not quite the best choice. Step pins still have great forward traction but not so much the front wheels are always off the ground. Making sure the slipper is loose enough to protect the diff is just the same as any other tire choice. It is just a little bit more sensitive since paddles can grab hard!

if you are on a track you may want to look at a differnt tire, they tear things up pretty good.

I live near The Wisconsin river and used them on a gt for bashing on the sand bars. They grab great but I ended up installing a steel diff gear and loosening the slipper.
