AKA Gridiron II 1/8 Buggy Tires no Inserts

The Gridiron II Tire:
The Gridiron II has been redesigned using the World Championship carcass borrowed from the Impact tire. Waffle ribbing has been added to help control tire expansion and the side pins are angled for better performance on rougher tracks. The tire is 5% lighter than the original, improving acceleration and all-around performance.
The AKA Gridiron Tire II is best suited to hard-packed and clay surfaces. The low tread depth means excellent traction in the racing line, which translates into faster lap times. It has a low-profile tread with small, staggered square spikes arranged symmetrically across and around the tire to provide a superior balance of forward and side bite. Long, staggered center lugs add a little extra forward bite, and greatly increase tread life by reducing wear.
The Gridiron II tire was designed for tracks that are hard packed and or tracks with little dust. This tire design is a great outdoor or indoor alternative. The square outer pins and bar center pins allow for great traction and long tire life compared to other small pin tires.


Notes from the team:

The Gridiron II tire is a team favorite and is used on the front and the rear of the car in hard packed conditions. This tire combines the forward bite to launch you out of the corners yet still provides a stable feel while cornering.

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.
