Awana Wheels

Awana Wheels

Lathed Wheels

These wheels have the following modifications:

  • Made by Awana®
  • The tread is lathed to remove all bumps and other imperfections and to make the wheel round within 0.001 inch and
  • The inside edge of the wheel rim is tapered. Reduces friction when the wheel rubs against the center guide rail.

Graphite Coated Awana Wheels

Lathed Wheels - Graphite Coated

These wheels are the same as the Awana Lathed Wheels but graphite has been bonded to the friction areas of the wheel as shown on the left.:

Ultra Lite Wheel

Ultra Lite Wheel

This is the ultimate racing wheel .  Every critical area of this wheel has been treated and machined so all dimensions are perfect and ready to race. In addition to all of the modifications of our lathed wheels, the hub is reamed straight and the inside of this wheel is totally re-worked with special tooling for the most possible weight removal but still retaining durability. This wheel is machined within a .0005” tolerance.

Polished Axles

These axles have the following modifications:

Awana Grooved Axles

Polished Grooved Axles

Same as our polished axles but we add a groove for less contact between axle and wheel (the groove also holds graphite during the race).

Axle Guide

This tool makes inserting the axles in your awana car a whole
lot easier. It makes sure that the axles are horizontal
and that the wheel-to-body gap is correct.
