Default Foams!!

What type of track calls for what type of foams? Should your tire compound match your foam, Im a lil confused on this. And are the Proline blue v2 molded foams harder or softer than the ones that come in v3 tires.

Might be wrong on this, but I look at foams the same as air pressure. If the track is rough, you want a softer foam (less pressure). If smooth, you want firmer foam (more pressure). Im sure someone with more knowledge will chime in.

That seems to make a lot of sense. Performance street tires are hard because the street are smooth and offroader like there tires softer for more traction on unlevel surfaces.
