Paying in the sand box with my 2015 RRS supercharged

Took my beast out to play in the sand dunes of Atlantis near Cape Town, truly amazing what this vehicle can do. Sniggers about my low profile tyres from other hardcore 4 x 4 enthusiasts soon turn to cheers as the V8 blasted the dunes, see the link below:

I also want to do Atlantis Dunes in my 2015 Supercharged.

Someone should tell the hardcore enthusiasts that chunky tyres are the worst tyres for sand. Road tyres are great because they don't dig in. Add a Terrain Response system tuned to sand driving and you have the result you showed. 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed

That's one hell of a bunker. I hoped you went back and raked it over when you finished. Very Happy "I am never content until I have constructed a model of the subject I am studying. If I succeed in making one, I understand; otherwise I do not" - Lord Kelvin

Slash, to what pressures did you drop the tyres? 1 bar? --

1.2 bar had no issues and really gave it horns. Must note when I got back on tar I thought I had done serious damage to my car because when I hit 100km an hour my steering wheel shuddered horrifically. Once all sand was removed from wheel wells and I blasted with a high pressure hose all was 100%.

lekker man!

I can't wait for an outing to Atlantis Dunes, the sand must be nice and hard after all that rain? --
