Losi Digit, King Pin G2 and BK bar tires

New from Losi is their Digit pattern for 1/8th buggy which is now available in Losi’s exclusive red compound. The new multi-level pin design is a two stage square pin design that is supported by a large base pin and provides excellent wear. The tire is highly versatile as it works on multiple track conditions from loose and loamy conditions to hard pack blue groove tracks. Losi molded inserts are provided and known for their perfect balance and are very lightweight. The new Losi King Pin G2 is now also available in Losi’s exclusive red compound which works excellent on medium to high grip tracks and provides excellent wear. The new small square pin design provides immense traction on hard packed tracks, while the new center bar design provides increased forward traction. No pin is located between the center bar designs which allows for great forward drive, making out-of-the corner jumps much easier. Losi’s BK Bar proved to have incredible forward traction while maintaining great side bite with tremendous longevity and is now available for the 1/10th Off-road Truck class in pink, red, and silver compounds. The tire can be used on the front and rear of truck for optimum traction on hard packed surfaces. It is also available as a 1/10th 4wd front tire in red and pink compounds and has proven to smooth out steering going into the turn while offering improved forward traction on corner exit on hard packed surfaces.
