Default AKA TYRE AVAILABILITY

I've noticed on Amain and a couple of other sites that AKA tyres are in really short supply, and have been for a while. Anybody know of any reason why?

Demand for the current World Champion tire brand is crazy right now. They are making them as fast as they can.

Why do you ask?

give tower hobbies a try most of my aka's come from there and they have some very good discounts, but yes it looks like they are the tyre to have for 2011.
cheers
hey Judge I would of thought that rc boats would be the best option up your way at the moment, we are not far off? lol

Nitro Challenge, Motorama, and being the current World Champion = high demand. High demand = shortage in supply. Economics 101.

Motorama AND Nitro Challenge undoubtedly having an effect... they are working their butts off down there and all those back orders will be filled for sure.

I've never had to glue AKA tires as I am lazy and always buy AKA premounts. Well no premounts available so I have 10 sets of tires I have to glue this weekend for the Challenge.

BTW, Are the new EVO with insert and red foams the ticket now?
