Black - 40S: Special tire for insane traction carpet tracks. Does not get gummy like Purple. If you dont have insane traction you car will push with these.
Purple - 40S: Rarely used, the foam this compound is made from gets more gummy late in a race making it unpredictable. The more you run this compund the gummier and stickier it gets. This makes it pick up crap from the track making it even more inconsistant.
Lilac - 37S: Great front tire for stock carpet or if dbl. pink is too much steering.
Double Pink - 35S: This is the stnadard front tire for carpetin all classes. Its is used front and rear for 19T and Mod carpet and front and rear in all classes on asphalt.
Grey - 35S: This is a low natural rubber compound. IT is just as hard as dbl. pink but it had FAR LESS traction. It is used to free up rhe rear of stock powered carpet cars for more efficiency and cornerspeed. This is the old standard rear carpet tire, most stock carpet racers use the softer yellow compound now for more forward grip.
Magenta - 32S: Its softer than dbl pink so if you need more steering than dbl. pink use these up front. If you need more rear traction than dbl. pink use these in the rear.
Pink - 30S: This tire is used in mod 1/12th on carpet and asphalt if the traction is low. If the tractioin is high it will lock in the rear of the car and make it push.
Yellow - 30S: This is a low natural rubber compound. It is the standard rear tire for Stock racing. It is used to free up the rear of stock powered carpet cars for more efficiency and cornerspeed.
White - 25S: This is a low natural rubber compound. It was the standard rear tire for 1/10th on road carpet racing. Its a little softer than yellow.
