Lightbulb Running 1/8 scale buggy in sand ?

Has anyone got any experience running off road buggies in the sand. I have an ofna mbx ultra that I have just bought paddle tires for and would like to run on the beach since I live five miles from there. Is there anything wrong with doing this. Please let me know if anyone has done this already and if it caused any problems. Thanks,

No experience with that but it will most likely junk your bearings then can get into your engine or the front engine bearing, sand might build up on your shocks and scratch the shock shafts. So not really too great of an idea to do unless you don't care about that stuff or mind replacing them.
