During the 2012 season out at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes near Mears, Michigan we visited SEVERAL times (like over 40) and shot a bunch of video while we were there.

For a while we were just going to keep all that footage on the "back burner" and not do anything with it, but we decided to change our minds and came up with some stuff you might enjoy.

This particular movie is a compilation of one aspect of the Silver Lake Sand Dunes that is a ton of fun to either participate in or just plain spectate. There's two different spots at the dunes for "sand drag races" that people will congregate at. And you will see anything from completely stock equipment to the class of highly modified, extremely high horsepowered equipment.

Little tip for those that have never been to the dunes. Three primary suggestions that are VERY important to know before going out to the dunes with a street or offroad vehicle:

1. Proper tire deflation. Most street legal tires can go as low as about 10 psi and aftermarket heavy duty offroad tires even lower like around 6-7 psi.

2. Proper gear selection. Use 4 LOW for hill climbs and 4 HIGH for everything else. Also, unless you have a ton of horsepower, don't "pussyfoot" up the hill, Gun it till you know for sure you are going to make it to the peak.

3. For those that have a vehicle with an "overdrive defeat" button, definitely use that. Some vehicles call it a "tow button."

Lastly, help keep everyone else safe by constantly scanning from left to right and your mirrors as some people just don't do that.
