On the Tamiya 801X we need to reim the inside of the AKA wheel to prevent rubbing against the arm. Does anyone know how the new EVO wheels with inner disc fit the 801X?

I've never had an AKA wheel crack, EVO or otherwise. But I also don't run in anything below 40F at the lowest. Any lower and I'm too cold to hold a transmitter for any length of time!

I'm sure they are working hard to keep up with demand. It's also the week after the Nitro Challenge so consider this as well.

Amain has stuff-premounts that come with red foams/evo wheels (dialed setup) and they have the red foams by themselves as well.

Hey guys, does anybody know a good online store in EU where I could buy the new AKA premounts? Shipping from USA is not an option anymore, since from January we are charged with VAT for all outside EU orders over 10 Euros

Losi guys: I just mounted up 2 sets of tires on the evo rims and also fitted the stiffeners to them. I am noticing that they are rubbing pretty bad on the front rims at full steering lock. They are rubbing on the arm. I am running the stock carriers without the steering throw mod. Just wondering if anyone else noticed this and what they did. Right now I think my best option is to run them without the stiffeners. Are they just like regular wheels then? At least not any weaker than regular wheels right...

Scott,

The evo rim by it self is stiffer then the reg wheel, most people wont run the stiffeners anyway because most of us dont run on perfectly smooth tracks. The stiffeners will be mainly used over on European tracks

I use the inclined spindles and have machined them to achieve greater steering lock. When you do this, you need to also cut the back of the arm so that it doesn't rub. Truhe ran AKA EVO/Insert/Red/Impacts at the worlds without an issue.
