the D8 winning the worlds, yeah that was impressive but what was the most impressive was the amount of cars they had in the main. It was like their whole team they sent there. lol.

you have to have 1st a good driver, then car, then tires.
Hara probably would have won on AKAs or Proline though...

I think your right .... AKA might be made here, sorry my bad

The SX8 is made in asia.... as all the cars. Not much choice there

I weighed a soft premounted city block the other night if I remember right it was 4.3 OZ.

Edit; i just looked at a package and the tires are made in USA, inserts made in taiwan.... just to clarify. Not sure where the wheels are made

just balanced some tires last night. prolines needed over a 1/4 per wheel to get them right(not mine, i run good tires). aka's took almost nothing, as a matter of fact, some were perfect out of the package. have you seen a truggy with un-balanced PL's? It looks like the a-arms are going to rip off at any moment. PL maybe king right now (only bcause they have more drivers), but they wont be for long. I switched from PL to Panther tires a long time ago because PL foams are the worst in the industry. Once the aka's came out, it was game over.
if you try aka tires, you will NEVER go back to anything else. they are almost like cheating.

Default Jconcepts

I friend of mine talked me into trying a set of jconcepts yellow hitmen tires recently and I was very impressed. They are very consistant and long lasting.
