    They handle fine in the sand. You'll get the same acceleration with paddles in the sand as you would with badlands on dirt IMO. If you run regular tires on sand you will have allot of wheel spin and no grip.

    EDIT: P.S. you CAN get away with running only two(2) paddles in the rear BTW. have a look:

    I find that badlands work well on sand.

    I'm Jealous! lol where I live the closest sand happens to be the beach. The dry loamy thick deep stuff up way away from the shore is the type that I'm talking about. I guess badlands would work on the harder compacted sand (like the kind in the YouTube vid above).
