AKA I-Beam 1/8 Buggy Tires and EVO Red Inserts

The I-Beam Tire:

The I-Beam features a dynamic tread pattern that will perform on just about any off-road track. The large center lugs are well suited for strong acceleration, and the position of the "I-Beam" outer portion of the tread alternates to deliver the ideal balance of acceleration and cornering performance.

The I-Beam is designed for traditional tracks with a little bit of loose dirt. The larger lugs allow the tire to dig deep for maximum traction when it is needed the most. Innovations:

Notes from the team:

Running I-Beams all the way around will provide a very neutral and easy to drive car with tons of forward bite on any loamy track. For drivers who prefer a more aggressive setup that yields more steering, try the "City Beam" combo (City Blocks in the front and I-Beams in the rear).



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

Used on /span> 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.
