Default Slash Baja Bug

I took my 2wd Slash to the beach a couple days ago. The sand paddles provided enough grip but it could still spin out and drift a little when I wanted. Definitely a fun setup, can't wait to go back.

Woops! I meant to post this in the "electric off-road" forum.

The wheels are 2wd Stampede/Rustler rear 2.2" nylons.

The rear tires are Panther sand paddles, not sure of they're made anymore.

The fronts are ancient Losi ribbed tires, probably from a "JRXT" or something!

Very nice! My orange Bug body is about shot. The next one I get will be painted green. I like the 2.2" wheels for this setup.

I have the most fun with my slash 4x4 Baja bug. I normally run paddles on the rear and smoothies on the front but just left my dirt tires on during my last pismo visit.
