No after market systems that I know of and the factory system has air springs. If you drive like that fellow in the white Cayenne I think your trip will be rather short, I'm surprised he didn't flip that thing on it's roof. Best bring along your crash helmet.

Wowser! turbo power required to muscle around 5000 lbs like that...

Did you notice that most/all the times where there was risk of flipping he was on the gas? I wonder if that is how this works...I could not do it but this was fun to watch! :)

Hi Q8 Helper

Ok for soft sand you need tyres that you can let down to about 18psi to get some traction.

I use 18" wheels on my turbo currently running Maragioni Maxo's.

As for lift, I have air, so no problem there. You don;t need so much lift for sand if you can keep the momentum up.

It's when you get stuck you need lift.

Also do a google search for Maxtrax. They are great in sand.

Check my other posts for more sand driving tips.

I also only just watched that video. Man, that is a prime example of how NOT to drive in sand dunes, you NEVER EVER drive across a dune, only up and down (you'll roll as the soft sand downhill gives way, (believe me I've seen it happen) and you NEVER EVER go flying over the top of a sand dune like that, unless you have checked the other side, you can get wind cut outs that make sheer drops that will flip your car for sure and smash the front in, again I've seen that happen, NOT PRETTY especially when you're miles away from Medical attention....
