Default Stadium truck at the beach!!

What do you guy think my electric XXXT would do with a 13t and paddles in the sand at the beach would do???
What if i drove in the harder sand down close to the water??

What about a 17t what would that do???

yeah, it probably wouldn't be a good thing to do.

Personally, If I wanted to do this, I wouldn't use Paddles. I would get some monster style V-grooved tires ( like stampede style tires ), flip them so the V is going the wrong way and then it should pack the sand under the wheel so it rides on top the sand instead of digging into it.

I did this with my T4 when there was snow on the ground using Imex G-Dawgs ( or J-Dawgs? ) and it worked great. With the extra ride height that should keep your truck fairly clean as long as you don't go hog wild.

Is it possible to do this, yes, recommended, NO. Fun ...

By the way, I wouldn't go down by the water. You never know what happens with the waves. If I was doing this, I would do it well enough away so that a wave couldn't catch my vehicle.
