Default sorex equivalent to jb blue

Hi guys im ordering some sorex 28rs from hobbyking as im buying some batteries anyway but they only sell sorex inserts and not the normal jb blues id normally use.

What sorex insert would be similar to a jb? They have a b c soft medium firm

I run on smooth carpet with medium-high grip

I usually order the "firm a" for my stock car.

For Mod, I've found that in some conditions the medium foam is better... But generally firm a is the way to go.

I am no help to answer the question specifically, but there is a section on the bottom of page 6 in the Petit R/C Handbook that discusses Sorex Inserts. Unfortunately, JB inserts are not mentioned.

The excerpt is attached:

Sorex Medium B and Medium C were extremely popular with 1500g weight limits but often softer inserts work better now.

I would start with medium C and go softer if you need more grip.
