    Don't think so. Due to the rules the 2WD have no disadvantage in hard terrain. I would even say that they are better suited for hard terrain because they have a lot longer travel, much bigger wheels, tyre pressure regulation, bigger ground clearance and a lot less weight.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CR4QLuwdxLM unlike WRC, Dakar is not just the competitors but you have 4-5 times more normal vehicles who also have to travel through the dirt. Imagine this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2VFRFI-LGs happening five times today.

    Prokop has quite a decently made series of Dakar videos on his youtube channel. It seems the conditions are indeed quite crazy there, with difficult terrain, weather and time constraints on the checkpoints and such. The newest video doesn't seem to have subtitles yet, the rest does though.
