Seen for the first time at the 2015 Dirt Nitro Challenge, AKA have officially released their new 1/8th Chain Link and Rasp thread patterns. The Chain Link is a unique tread pattern that works very well on low dust, grooved up tracks. The large low profile lugs keep wear at a minimum while adding consistency throughout your run. The open tread pattern gives the dust large voids to move to so the tread pattern can grip the clean surface and glide through ruts with ease. The Rasp is a small pin tread pattern which is ideal for hard packed tracks with a dusty surface. The lower profile tread allows your car to get in and out of corners effortlessly with an emphasis on forward bite. The Rasp makes a great qualifying tire to get you that TQ! Both are available in the championship winning super soft, soft, and medium compounds and as with all AKA tires, they are designed and proudly made in the USA.

Following the announcement of the Prime 1/10th buggy slick tyres Pro-Line now also introduce the Prime T 2.2″ stadium truck and the Prime SC 2.2″/3.0″ short course tyres. They target directly at racers currently running full “slick” tyres, saving them from having to grind treaded tyres down while delivering improved performance. The Prime features unique grooves that add traction and stability when the track is freshly watered or when there is a slight layer of thin dust that would cause a traditional slick to spin. The raised treaded portion of the Prime has a distinctive rough surface texture similar to a ground slick tyre and makes it have the maximum performance right out of the package. Both the Prime T and Prime SC come with blue closed cell inserts and they are available in M4 Super Soft or MC Clay compound.
