On our clay track we use the softest compound tire available and grind them to slicks. In our case we like Hot Bodies pink compound or Pro Line M4. I use JConcepts or AKA medium closed cell inserts in the rear tires. For the front, I take a rear open cell foam, trim the corners just a bit, and shove them in the front

We have a rather high bite, indoor, clay track that we run on. I use Electrons (as do most of the faster guys) in Purple compound with the blue inserts that come with it. Liquid Wrench on them for the 2 or 3 packs and they break in nice and fast. After that, the tires just get better and better until they are completely slick.

I am still getting used to hearing tires that squeal.... lol
