This is the AKA Racing Slash 1/8 Wheel Adapter Kit, and is intended for use with the Traxxas Slash 1/10 short course truck. Designed by Mark Pavidis, these adapters allow the use of standard 1/8 wheels and tires on the Traxxas Slash truck. The use of standard 1/8 buggy tires and wheels substantially improves the handling of the truck and allows the user to take advantage of wheels and tires they may already have from their 1/8 Buggy. This also allows for a multitude of tires choices so the user can have the best tire for any track conditions that may come their way.
The adapters are made from high grade 7075 aluminum and hard coated for the ultimate in durability and weight savings. These adapters come with all necessary pieces for use and include AKA “SureGrip” 17mm nuts to keep the wheels securely on the hubs. “SureGrip” 17mm wheel nuts are made from 7075 and also feature hard anodizing plus a knurled rear face to grab the plastic of the wheel and stay put.
Use of the adapters requires no modifications to the truck and they can be installed and removed in just minutes. The adapters keep the 1/8 tires within the stock width of the truck and body clearance is no problem. Even the steering radius is kept the same. These will surely be a hit with Slash owners worldwide.

Highly recommend. These things are a great improvement. Only issue I have had was keeping the left rear adapter on the axle, as the direction the axle spins unscrews the adapter nut, but a little threadlock and I have not had that issue again. These adapters plus the Team Associated KMC Assembled Wheels, and Losi 8ight buggy shocks are some of the best improvements I have done to the Slash.
Work great but make sure the gap where the pin goes in is tight or else if they are loose the gap could start to wear.
Very good quality, look great and work as intended.
Do not work with mip xduty axles on slash!!
not the adapters fault.
The mip axles do not have a hole for a pin to go through, they use a grub screw to attach the wheel hex.
these adapters only work with the stock style setup.
Powdered Metal?!? They are turned from billet. I have a couple sets and they have been quite nice. If you have had a problem contact AKA. They make very high quality parts and the customer service is great.
the AKA adapters went on perfectly great upgrade the fit
was top notch the buggy wheels work out better than the
wheel that come with the truck

This is the "The Single Best Upgrade for the Slash" I have bolted on yet! I am really impressed with the tune-ability of my Traxxas Slash now, by being able to mix and match my 1//8 buggy collection of wheel and tire sets. I have some used AKA GRIDIRONS that simply RULE!. The Truck has better suspension, is more consistent on blown out tracks, and the steering is unbelievable! These Guys know their stuff. ! Completely satisfied!
