I admit I have no experiance in the sand, but I want to learn more. Anyone want to give me some basic pointers? I know mud, how much different is sand?

Re: Sand?

Mud you have a chance of digging down to the bottom and catching solid traction... Sand, you'll just bury yourself to the frame rails. There are different strategies for mud, sand is all about floatation and speed.

Re: Sand?

Some of it just depends on the sand tires you pick(I prefer Sand Sharks.)Just take it easy at first and get used to what your tires do in the sand.
