well i was mainly just wondering if snow would be at all comparable to sand
if it was i would just get one now
and then i could use it in sand and when the snow comes
but a good looking woman sounds good too!
Thanks anyway

Snow and sand are very opposite. No sport quads do very well in the snow and the Pred isnt any different. Gearing may make a small difference in traction but not near as much as tires.

interesting, i had always thought sand and snow would be similar to run in, ive seen pics of quads with paddles and snowmobile skis on front for tires, must have been a lot of work for nothing. guess ill stick to inside or bodywork on the 57 instead

They have simularities, and differences! The key of both is to stay on top..and its alot easier in sand! Snow once you get down and inch or two, your doomed! Tire choice is VERY important!

I run 13/38 gearing for the winter for two reasons. For one, i run a 22" tire so i want to keep my gearing close to stock, and second, the bike needs lower gearing, so the 38 gives it just that extra low end. The biggest thing is tire choice!

Has anyone ever tried to adapt matttracks to the rear and skis to the front? I would love to do that and register my pred as a snomobile to be able to ride the trails in the winter
