Watching sand cars doing wheelstands across the sand dunes is something you can’t really grasp until you’ve seen it. With well over 1,000 horsepower in many of these beasts, they scoop massive amounts of sand with just the blip of the throttle, and can carry the wheels across the sand at over 100 mph with ease. This is fun and excitement for sure. They also like to fly. Like an eagle. Seriously, they are almost better at being off the ground than on it, and we fully support their high flying antics.
With suspension travel measured in feet, 4 digit horsepower numbers, and a power to weight ratio you just can’t imagine, these things will get your attention in a hurry. They have cool features like GPS, turning brakes, radios for all passengers, tons of LED lights, and all the attitude you could ever hope for. These are legitimate hot rods that eat up sand and hit speeds you wouldn’t believe in just seconds. Just watching them test these Funcos on the relatively flat ground at the entrance to Glamis is a riot and makes me wish I was the guy driving one instead of watching it on video.
Watch this one, you’ll dig it.
