AKA adopts two popular tread patterns for off-road’s biggest racing classes

May 09, 2014 No Comments by

AKA has been at the forefront of off-road tire technology since the brand debuted with a full line for 1/8-scale nitro buggies, but when the market shifted back toward 1/10-scale electric racing so did the focus of the California-based company. Their latest products translate two of their most widely used tire patterns from the big buggy class into smaller formats, to be used on short course trucks and the rear of 1/10-scale 2WD and 4WD buggies.

Anything from hard packed high grip, to loose and loamy tracks, the Impact is sure to keep your truck firmly planted in the dirt. Available in AKA’s race proven Super Soft, and Soft compounds.

The Gridiron has always been a go-to tire on race days for 1:8 and SC trucks. The 1:10 Gridiron takes the same design cues as its bigger brothers and packs it into a dust-cutting, small pin performer. On dusty hard packed tracks where you would struggle with traction, the Gridiron will be a top performer! Available in AKA’s race proven Super Soft, and Soft compounds.

About the author

Associate Editor Since receiving my first hobby-grade RC car as a holiday present from my father nearly 20 years ago, I've been fortunate enough to meet more people and experience more opportunities through the adventures I've had in the RC industry than I would've ever imagined. I've done it all - from working at a hobby shop, to being a factory sponsored racer, to working for some of the biggest brands in the industry. I've enjoyed each and every one of the dozens of kits I've built, hundreds of events I've attended, and thousands of laps that I've logged at race tracks around the world, and my passion is to share those experiences with other hobbyists so that they may find fulfillment in their own RC careers.
