Wanted to share my experience at dunes.... Ran stock setup my first time at Dumond dunes, needed 4wd to get around anywhere I wanted to go. Made it up the big hills mostly and over transitions fairly easy. 2nd trip to Dumont I change the rears out for paddles, ItP sand stars 10 paddles, the car ran so much better it wasn't even close. Some guys are comparing stock tires in 4wd to paddles and there is no comparison. You NEED to be in 2wd, reason being is the car goes over razor backs with ease, as opposed to 4wd where it tries to pull you and transitions feel way worse, not to mention 4wd drift going up steep hills. Having said that, I sold the crappy ITP paddles (work well but could be better) for skat trak 8 paddle 26.5x12x12 and front ribs. Ordered vision rims 12x8 all around with a 2+6 offset, compared to the 5+2 stock it will be much wider and more stable in the sand.
