Battle Mountain to McDermott has a few sandy stretches also. For the CO sections and OR sections you'll be fine with the rear Scorpion. TKC-80 might be a compramise. The big 950 would be great for the run into Baker NV
Living in Florida, were stuck riding in sand for almost all off road adventures. Can't get away from it, very few trails offering hard pack. This weekend, I tried running the stock Scorpions on the sand and it wan't fun. The 990 is too heavy and the stock tires were a joke. If we can get away from sand, we will. Thanks.
