Pre- Mounted AKA Impact EVO 1:8 Truggy Tire
The AKA Impact EVO 1:8 Competition Truggy Tires are a new design to add to your winning tire collection for the track. Designed for use in harsh conditions that would quickly eat up most other tires and fits nicely into the AKA lineup. Designed to last longer and still provide great performance. The IMPACT tire has a dense small square lug pattern with offset lug rows in the center of the tire to deliver maximum forward traction and good wear characteristics. The two outer rows of lugs are parallel to create a circumferential groove at the edge of the tire to give the tire very predicable side bite. This allows the car to rotate in the center of the turn while still feeling very stable and predictable. The IMPACT is built on AKA's latest EVO carcass design.

Mounted on AKA EVO Truggy wheels that have been re-designed to be used as a total solution based on the combination of the new tire bead, new EVO shaped insert and design of the new tires.

The EVO 1:8 Shaped  and Grooved Red (soft) Truggy Insert:
Based on our World Championship design of the 1:8 Buggy red inserts; the EVO Truggy closed cell red insert have been track tested and designed for the EVO Truggy tires. AKA beefed up the design of the EVO Truggy insert to offer unmatched tire support while improving handling through the bumps. The EVO closed cell insert foam is the same quality foam that our customers have come to rely on from AKA. The inserts are water resistant and can handle the abuse that these large truggy tires dish out.


AKA Innovations:


Tread Performance: Each tire tread is computer designed and track tested by AKA engineers and team drivers to ensure the best performance before each tire goes into production.

Balance: Like AKA inserts and wheels, tire balance is critical to superior performance and it's a priority in AKA tires. Mold components are manufactured to the highest tolerances to ensure the best possible alignment of all the mold components. This results in a tire with more uniform thickness for the best possible balance.

Lifespan: The long life of the AKA tires is due to the collective decades of rubber compound development that AKA brings to the table. In fact, AKA engineers have been responsible for developing some of the most successful tires in off-road racing for a generation. Each compound is tested in labs then rigorously track tested to ensure the highest quality.

Mold Accuracy: AKA tire molds are made in the U.S.A. using the most advance mold-making techniques and processes available. The cost is higher to produce such a precision mold, but its part of an uncompromising desire to deliver the highest quality product available.

Compounds: AKA offers 3 different long-lasting tire compounds, each of which is color-coded by a small mark on the sidewall of each tire.
These compounds provide superior grip for across the entire spectrum of track conditions. For specific compound information, see our tire application chart to determine which tire is best suited to your track conditions.

Re-sealable bag: AKA was the first to introduce this simple and effective packaging to the r/c car market. Each bag can hold two sets of tires and more importantly can be used over and over. The bag also helps keep them organized and out of the elements which keep the rubber at its best possible condition.


Notes from the team:
Gil Losi Jr and Mark Pavidis didn't want to use a softer material or hollow out the inner circumference of the insert so they have incorporated lateral grooves to the internal diameter of AKA's closed cell inserts. The lateral grooves allow the insert to flex vertically to absorb the large impacts while still maintaining lateral stability and overall durability AKA inserts are known for. The result is a more predictable handling car in the harshest track conditions. A stiff wheel combined with a laterally stable, vertically compliant insert equals faster lap times as Cody King proved when he used these inserts along with the new Evo wheel to take home the win at the 2010 IFMAR world championships.
