For those looking for better handling from their Slash, AKA have announced the release of their 1:8 wheel adapters for the Traxxas Slash truck that allow you to mount regular buggy wheels to your truck. Made from 7075 aluminum and hard anodized, they are supplied with all the necessary fasteners to mount them and include AKA “SureGrip” 17mm nuts to keep the wheels securely on the hubs. The wheel nuts are made from 7075 aluminium and also feature hard anodizing plus a knurled rear face to grab the plastic of the wheel and stay put. The adapters install in just minutes and require zero modifications to the truck and the stock width and steering radius are kept in tact. Adapters will ship starting the week of August 10th.
