Pink is a clay compound and is good for hard packed indoor tracks.

Not exactly--it gets kind of confusing on which is actually softer. They use totally different types of rubber. Pink is generally an indoor clay compound. It seems to have a stiffer carcass than red, while being pretty sticky--I have heard there is more oil in the rubber?

Where a red works pink really won't work at all unless the moisture and temp. changes. At our track we only really run reds in late summer when the track is dry, hot and cracked. Pinks work awesome in the colder seasons when the track holds more moisture.

Red is softer than pink and silver.

Pink has real rubber in it. That's why it works so different.

Normally... if pink works, then red is junk and vice versa.
