This is a pack of two AKA Racing Catapult 1/8 Buggy Tires. The 1/8 Catapult is
engineered to offer a balance of life and traction on dusty abrasive tracks.
The larger lugs minimize wear, while the “C” shaped treads dig through the
dust to find grip.
Red Insert (Soft):
The red insert is designed to soak up the big bumps with its fluted I.D.
while still holding its shape in the turns to increase corner speed and
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.
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.
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 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.
