AKA Soft Buggy Insert

New from AKA:

AKA is proud to reveal the “last bullet in the clip” for our assault on the 2010 IFMAR World Championships in Pattaya, Thailand. To compliment the release of the EVO wheel and the IMPACT tire, the new soft red insert was designed to decrease the lateral deflection of the tire while at the same time increasing the vertical impact absorption therefore providing better handling in the bumps. Using softer foam or hollowing out the inner circumference like other companies do still leaves the car feeling squirmy and less accurate through the bumps. Not to mention the loss of durability. Gil Losi and Mark Pavidis knew this compromise was not the solution. The solution they found was the addition of lateral grooves to the I.D. of AKA’s best in class 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. No compromises. 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. Just ask Cody King. Cody used these inserts along with the new EVO wheel to take home the win at the Sidewinder race two weeks ago!
