Just curious, when at sand lake oregon last month I thought I saw some huge paddle tires but they were spinning so fast it was hard to read the tire size on them <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

31s and 33s would just be too much of a loss of ground clearance for my cruiser <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

Bigger Diggers come in 32" & 36" sizes. BUT, that's not a true picture of how big they really are. The 36" version are about 44" if you include the paddles. You can KINDA make out the 36" (16 scoop) Bigger Diggers on the rear of this machine:




That's just one of several options.

I was over at a friends house last night, cutting the small lugs out of a set of brand new 37x13 boggers... They looked kinda like this:</font>

Hey Dave you wont want to go much bigger than the 33s at the end of the paddles cause you aint got the go in the ol 305. Low gears arent gonna help here. That is why Jay has the built motors in his rigs. Im telling you BIG BLOCK. Well if you want to run sand alot then acctually a high winding smallblock that has good power to about 6000 to 6500 is perfect. All that flex isnt helping either. Get rs9s and turn em to tight.By the way Steve might still have his paddles. He had some 16in wide ones that he ran in the sand.What does Jay run on his EB? Doesnt he have a built 351? You guys should get a couple quads if you like the dunes. You can go much farther and fly much higher with those.

Jay runs a 289 in his bronco....but it did 12 second runs in the 1/4 mile when it was in his wifes car. His bronco also has the nitrous sitting there but it isn't hooked up <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">

So...how much difference in performance is there between a bogger, a cut bogger, and a paddle tire?

What car is his wife racing? All I know is the 67 chevelle and I think he or one of the bros bought the white chev on 40s or 44 dick cepeks and a 427 in it. I need to stop by and say hi to my friends. I cant believe all the hot rods those boys have and had and Ive never heard of one going to the track.

Boggers are great. Cut boggers are even greater. And Paddles are the greatest.

The ideal "mud" combo with ALOT of power is paddles rear, cut boggers front. If you have paddles in the front, it makes it nearly impossible to steer.

I don't know if anyone does this anymore but 20 years ago I had a st of paddles from someplace in SoCal they vulcanized them on a set of buffed down 12x15 bias ply cores.

Most of the Formula Offroad cars in Sweden are using Dick Cepek Multipaddle tires and some use Skat-Trak in the rear.
Here's a pic of Hans Mäki car. He's got Skat-Trak in the rear and Dick Cepek Multipaddle up front.

Thanks for the replies:)
I was sort of surprised to see this brought back up but you had some good info that I was looking for.

Wow here is a thread with dust on it. Those are some large diameter paddles. What kind of horsepower does that require? Dave if you guys buy Quads we will too.
