    Cool bashing on the beaches of Baja

    so hey guys i am headed to the beaches of Baja to visit the rents and check out the Baja 250. i will be bringing my E-Maxx 3908 and wanna run it at the beach i been thinking about getting some Proline Sand Paws and a shroud cover from Dusty Motors. thinking about getting some lipos too as i have been running the stock 3000 mah Nimh's. but my main question is for those who have run Sand tires on soft/med sand at the beach. should i just stick with paws on the back or all the way around? as opposed to a sand rail like setup with paws on the back and pie cutters up front? thanks for any help or insight. i will definitely upload some pics around mid March when i get back.

    Just my thoughts from a guy who has never ran his E Maxx on a sandy beach.

    Paddle tires on the front would seem to led towards throwing unwanted sand into the chassis area especially when turning. I think I'd lean towards the rail type pizza cutter on the front.

    Again, I have no experience to back up this statement, it's just my opinion.

    When it comes to intricate moving parts, salt water is not your friend. Bring a can of WD-40 with you!

    I ran mine on a very powdery beach the other day, paddles on all 4 works GREAT! gets you any where, but your turning is not that good, Have a look at my video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHAd3...B33dmA&index=1
