Default Pink Tapers vs. Panther Switch

What Panther compound would you recomend for a track that is a "pink taper" track?

The Panther clay compound is supposed to be the equivalent of the Losi pink compound.

I have heard that it was Losi's "old" pink compound.

So I guess everyone runs the clay.

Thanks

The Panther Clay is much harder than the Losi Pink. There really is no equivalent to Losi Pinks. I would think that if you can't get Pink Tapers, then Pink Xs (2 or 3), would probably be the next best.

The 2.0 has a slightly different tread pattern. I think the 2.0 is supposed to give more side bite.

2.0's have a rib on both edges of the tire (taper pins have one rib), switch's do not have any ribs.

2.0 looks like a pretty legit tread pattern for hard-packed tracks! I might try a pair and see what I think.
