Compounds

Silver (S);The most common and reliable Team Losi compound works well under varying conditions and is exceptional on blue-groove and soft surfaces.

Red (R); The Team Losi soft compound that picks up where Silver stops, this soft/sticky formula works well on dry, hard, slick surfaces.

Pink (P); The newest Team Losi soft compound that offers traction similar to Red with handling characteristics similar to Silver.

The correct order is red, pink, silver, gold, ht. Gold and HT are not in production any longer.

no, pink is the softest, red is medium and silver the hardest.

Why in God's name you would mention gold and HT when they haven't been made in over 5 years?

Pink are not softer than red, red is Losi's softest compound avaiable to the public. At on time Losi did make a white compound that was even softer but they were too soft. Pink is a synthetic rubber which makes it ideal for indoor clay tracks because it gives the traction similar to red but the handling charactoristics of silver. Just like Nick stated, the softest to hardest is Red softest, Pink Medium, and silver hardest. Gold and HT are no longer used but Nick also plased them in the correct order as well.

T. Thomas, Tony2 and Nick111 are correct. The red compound is the softest and silver is the hardest.

Team Losi Red is comparable to Pro-Line M3
Team Losi Silver is comparable to Pro-Line M2
Team Losi Pinks are inbetween reds and silvers but aren't commonly used.

Pink's "stiffness" is irrelevant. All you need to know,

Red's = Soft tires, almost always used in the rear, also commonly in front.

Silver's = Hard tires, almost never used in the rear, sometime for fronts depending on the track (mostly blue groove)

Pink's = used for clay tracks, front and rear, on true clay, you will most often run these.

Lightbulb Losi Tire controversy

Hello everyone,
I emailed Travis Amezcua, and asked him what the dealio is and lets see what a Team Losi driver has to say... I am positive it is Pink, Red, Silver... From soft to hard... But I could be wrong... I know Pink has the highest "sticky" rating...
