The AKA Ground foam insert, better balanced, better fit and
longer lasting than any other foam today in RC!
These inserts have not only changed the RC tire industry but they have
also changed the of the way we race. For the racer looking for the advantage or
just the average guy looking to get his money's worth, AKA inserts have you
Better Balance: The balance of tire inserts has always been
an issue in R/C racing, but AKA has pioneered a revolutionary manufacturing
technique to produce the most balanced inserts on the market. These special
inserts keep the tires running straight and true, which means your tires are
always in contact with the racing surface for more traction than has even been
possible with conventional inserts.
Tire Support: AKA uses a material and process that has never been used in making
inserts. The special closed-cell foam feels substantially stiffer than typical
foam inserts, and for good reason. Through rigorous testing for over a year, and
drawing from decades of racing experience, it was discovered that the firm foam
and the progressive nature in which the insert compresses, provides the best
support for the tire. So your tires are not riding on the sidewall during hard
cornering, they're riding on the full surface of the tread for unmatched
traction and precise steering response.
Superior Precision: AKA inserts are precision-cut with state of the art
machinery. This ensures the ultimate consistency from insert to insert. There's
no trimming, balancing or stuffing required, simply run the inserts as they are
right out of the package and experience the best and most consistent performance
ever from a tire insert.
Durability: The revolutionary AKA inserts are setting new standards in the
market. Many conventional inserts experience significant degradation before a
single set of tires are worn out, and many of them degrade further when exposed
to water (e.g. when washing your tires). AKA inserts are unaffected by water,
virtually eliminate tearing common with other inserts, and last through multiple
sets of tires. During testing, depending on track abrasiveness and tire
compound, team drivers have used a single set of inserts in more than 20 sets of
tires without any significant degradation.
Notes from the team:
Many of the team drivers will re-use these inserts and save
them when a softer more broken down insert is needed. A softer more broken down
insert is often used when track conditions are very bumpy or when traction is
