AKA City Block 1/8 Buggy Tires and EVO Red Inserts
The City Block Tire:
The City Block tire is designed for hard to medium-packed surfaces. The two-stage tread features square mini-pins on top of rectangular blocks. The square mini pins are designed for superior grip on a hard-packed, high-traction racing surface. The rectangular blocks underneath the mini pins provide greater tread depth, which is also makes this versatile tire ideal for those times when you drift into the loose dirt.

The City Block is a very unique and versatile type tire. This tire works in a large variety of conditions from loose to high traction. Because of this unique design, the City Block is the work horse tire of the AKA line and works well in the majority of track conditions.

Notes from the team:
The City Blocks on the front and rear will really lock the car in. Some team drivers will run the City Blocks in the front and the I Beams in the rear. This will free up the rear of the car and allow you to get thru the corners quicker.



The AKA 1:8 Buggy Grooved and Shaped Insert Soft
:

Used on Cody King's Kyosho Inferno MP9TKi2 to bring home the big win!!!

The AKA 1:8 Buggy Grooved and Shaped Soft foam Insert is designed to improve handling on tracks with sharp edges and large jump falls. Helps absorb impacts from large vertical bumps but keeps the tires sidewall and profile shape even under hard cornering This gives you more constant handling performance in bumpy and rough sections on any track.

The winning combo in this year's IFMAR Fuel 1:8th scale world championship along with AKA's Impact tires and EVO wheels!

Features:

  • Grooved outer surface fits AKA tires perfectly
  • Cuts in the inner section allow more bump absorption
  • Keeps Tire's shape under high lateral G-Loads
  • World championship winning design wins the 2010 IFMAR worlds

In more detail:

Gil Losi Jr and Mark Pavidis didnt 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.
