The REBAR is designed for indoor tracks and hard packed, blue grooved outdoor tracks. The REBAR features double side rails on the edges of the tire provide extra sidewall support. This increases side bite and keeps your buggy planted in the turns. The wide staggered center lugs give the REBAR great forward traction to hook up the power and launch your buggy off the corner and over the jumps.

Tread Performance - Each tire tread is computer designed and track tested by AKA engineers Gil Losi, Mark Pavidis and team drivers to ensure the best performance before each tire goes into production.

Lifespan: The long life of the AKA tires is due to the collective decades of rubber compound development Gil Losi brings to the table. In fact, Mark and Gil 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.

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.

AKA is the pioneer in closed cell inserts. This 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 with a less accurate feeling 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 inner diameter. 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 without giving up durability.

Les carros sont superbes (Même si c'est pour présenter les pneus) :scared:

Les inserts ressemblent assez aux Core, sinon les pneus c'est à tester mais vu ce qu'on utilise sur nos pistes ... ça ressemble plutôt aux Suburbs qu'ils utilisent aux States !

Les cores RC il faut achetter plusieur car elle n'ont jamais tout à fait la même dureter (je les ait achetter dès leur sortie, peut-être est-ce mieux maintenant) j'avais aussi des problème d'équilibrage assez important avec les mousses core RC.

Par contre je reste persuader que sur certaine piste en france ca fonctionne bien. Perso j'ai vraiement envie d'essayer leur mousse. De toute façon j'essayerais aussi les pneus.

Salut Ben,

Tu as raison, je viens d'en recevoir 3 paires :

1 paire équilibrée,

2 autres pas équilibrées, mais comme tu dit en les mixant ça va bien.

The new AKA HEXlite 1:10 buggy wheels were designed with two things in mind, weight and durability. Both were achieved through superior engineering and use of AKA’s proprietary high-impact nylon. This combination makes them one of the lightest hex wheels on the market. Revolutionary to the 1:10 market is the optional wheel stiffener insert. It has been designed to help keep dirt from building up inside the wheel, making it go out of balance, and stiffens the already stiff wheel. HEXlite wheels spin true and balanced thanks to the quality craftsmanship of being made in the U.S.A.

New tires from AKA with the "Deja vu" & "Gridiron II".

- Déja vu: The Deja Vu is a "bar" tire that excels on both indoor clay and outdoor hard packed tracks. The taller tread pattern cuts through dust with ease and provides a longer wearing tire for those abrasive tracks. Available with red inserts or pre-mounted pairs on Cyclone wheels in our race proven Clay, Super Soft, and Soft compounds.

- Gridiron II: similar to its older brother, but refined with a large number of smaller pins. The smaller pins work well at getting grip on hard packed tracks with a layer of dust that sits on top. The Gridiron II also makes a great front tire choice to smooth out steering on 2wd SC trucks. Available with red inserts or pre-mounted pairs on Cyclone wheels in our race proven Super Soft, and Soft compounds.

As always, designed and proudly made in the USA.
