The AKA 1:10 Gridiron SC Slash 2WD Rear or Kyosho Ultima 2WD Pre-Mounted tire in
Clay Compound is a team favorite and is normally used in hard packed conditions. This tire combines the forward bite to launch you out of the corners hard yet still provides a stable feel while cornering. Works well on tracks that have little or no dust with a packed racing line indoors or outdoors. Longer lugs in the center provide longer tire wear and more forward bite.
The Clay compound is made specifically to work on high bite
blue grooved tracks or indoor clay tracks. Better wear and overall grip
constancy help improve lap times!
Combined with the AKA closed cell
soft Red inserts and a much stronger outer sidewall than conventional tires, you will get a much flatter and larger contact patch on the ground. No more need for cranking in tons of camber to keep the tire patch flat on the ground. This results in more constant, improved handling as well as even tire wear.
All of AKA SC tires feature a unique inner carcass ribbing that supports the outer sidewall to the wheel and also captures the foam. This gives the tire a consistent feel across the width of the tire. Other tire manufactures leave gaps in these areas therefore the tire is not supported all the way across the width of the tire. Our tires work best on the flatter style wheels vs. the cone type wheels that leave the tire unsupported.
