    The Traxxas Maxx tires are pretty good in the sand. Deep grooves help a lot. Not sure what model Stampede you have though...because if it's the brushed 4x4 you probably already have them!

    The vxl will get hot if you run paddles in soft sand, make sure to watch the temps and gear accordingly. The 2.8 sand paws by proline are what most people run. I was going to get them this winter but we didn't see enough snow....so I can't comment on them, except they are about $40/pair mounted.

    Though I personally have not tried my sling shots on the slash 4x4, I think they will do great.

    The sand paws will probably be awsome too, as for maxxx chevrons, they will just be to big, f you can get tyres that have simmilar threads it will be great, I love my maxx chevrosn on mud, grass and wet conditions on my revo.

    Why would the Maxx Chevrons be too big on a Stampede? They are 2.8's just like the stock tires. Only slightly taller (like 1/8 inch).

    I guess depending on the wheels you use, mine are 3.8 geodes, and have 2.8 Mashers on F11 to compare them with, just aligned them on my 2wd pede when I had them and they were just to0 big. I have a slash 4x4 and for this truck too they are humangus.....so now I got them on the revo

    They make the Maxx Chevron tires for the Stampede too, you're thinking of something else. Here's mine:

    They are simply the Traxxas Maxx tires that come on the brushed version of the Stampede 4x4. They come glued already:

    As for my driveline, I've got Tekno axles front and back on stock gearing and 3S and I can run the heck out of it without any heat issues. I haven't broken anything yet. A little fun from last night:

    Now I see, they are sold on actual 2.8 wheels, I have 3.8 wheels that are huge in comparison.

    What do you know, get to know new things ....I did not think the chevrons came on 2.8 as well.

    What kind of sand? Hard packed, loose and soft? shallow or deep? The looser and deeper the sand the bigger you want the grooves like sand paddles. Trust me we are surrounded by sand.
