Default MTR Foams in LPR Tires???

Why is it that Pro-line had put MTR foams in LPR Tires when they are obviously too thick. Too thick as in they make the lpr's have a rounded carcass and I would like a flat carcass with my holeshots and crimefighters and bow ties.
Does anyone know what better foams to put in these tires?

This is what I use, and they work great!
Flatter carcass, and much lighter.

Thanks. They were the exact ones I was looking at. Will AKA Truggy foams contour to the Pro-Line LPR's well? Them AKA foams look like the bomb.

Yes the AKA foams will fit , but aren't available as of yet by themselves. Should be a few more weeks before we see them, as well as the Gridirons for truggy.
