The AKA Wishbone in Clay compound pre-mounted on yellow EVO wheels is great for indoor clay tracks in lower temperatures and moist surfaces, with super hi bite such as CRCRC. The Wishbone is designed with stiffer carcass sidewalls and has 3 radial ribs on the inside of the tire to keep it more stable with the softer AKA compounds. Low profile pin design for less pin flex Staggered center "WISHBONE" bars to increase forward drive and side bite


AKA brings its technology indoors! 

As indoor 1/8 scale racing is becoming more and more popular it only makes sense for AKA to enter into the 1/8 indoor tire market. After months of testing with drivers from all over the country, we feel we have something to bring to the table for these specific indoor track conditions that racers see. The tire features dense center “WISHBONE” lug design that helps give the tire both great forward and side bite. Mark Pavidis says “Being a racer myself the AKA “WISHBONE” looks to be the tire to meet racers expectations for those tricky indoor track conditions.”


Design Features:
New Carcass Design with stiffer sidewalls and 3 radial ribs on the inside of the tire to keep the tire more stable with the softer AKA compounds. Low profile pin design for less pin flex Staggered center “WISHBONE” bars to increase forward drive and side bite.

Innovations:

Clay compound:
Made specifically to work on high bite blue grooved tracks or indoor clay tracks. Better wear and overall grip constancy help improve lap times!

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 5 different long-lasting tire compounds.
  • Clay
  • Super Soft
  • Soft
  • Medium
  • Hard
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.

The AKA 1:8 Buggy Grooved and Shaped Insert Soft
: - Included in Pre-Mounts

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.

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.

 

The AKA 1/8th Evo Competition Buggy Wheels:

Note: These Wheels DO NOT INCLUDE the AKA34003 Stiffening insert or dish! You Must Purchase separate.

The AKA 1:8 Evo Competition Buggy Wheels in Yellow improves handling by furthering Mark Pavidis and Gil Losi's design ideas that has revolutionized off road tires forever using stiffer foams and tire sidewalls.

Removing the unpredictability of older wheel designs that flex and deform this new wheel is designed to be much stiffer and hold its shape under grueling conditions. This helps the suspension on the car work the way it was designed to and give you much more consistent performing setups.
The winning combo in this year's IFMAR Fuel 1:8th scale world championship along with AKA's Impact tires!

Features:

  • Stronger and stiffer design
  • Lighter than the previous wheels
  • Handels the G-Forces produced by modern buggy chassis without de-forming
  • World championship winning design wins the 2010 IFMAR worlds
  • Smooth inner surface helps prevent dirt buid up inside the wheel
  • Use with or without stiffener for more setup choices
In more detail:
Now that AKA's closed cell foams have become a part of everyone's product line it became apparent to us that all the current wheels are too soft compared to the now stiffer inserts and the ever increasing G forces of modern 1:8 buggy chassis. The goal was to achieve a stiffer wheel without sacrificing weight or durability. Mark and Gil were able to reach this goal by first changing the face of the wheel from convex to concave. This design change helps the EVO wheel deal with the ever increasing G-loads of a modern 1:8 buggy without distortion of the face of the wheel. Next they were able to kill two birds with one stone by developing an optional internal dish which serves two purposes. The first and most important purpose is to further stiffen the wheel and especially help the inner most bead of the wheel hold it's shape. The second purpose of this dish is to block dirt from being trapped within the inner ribbing of the wheel and throwing the wheel out of balance. These design innovations allowed the wheel to be stiffer without going to stiffer and therefore more brittle plastic or increasing wall thickness which gives up clearance and adds weight at the outer edge of the wheel. The advantage of the stiffer EVO wheel shows up immediately on rough tracks, high bite tracks, tracks with large jumps and tracks with high speed sections.
