Default Tire question?

Got my RC8T kit and need some tires. I do mostly bashing type running on a homeade track with friends. I am undecided on the best tire choice. Thinking about bow ties, area is hard pack underneath with lots of loose dirt on top. What compound is best? M2, M3, or XTR?

yeah I know what surface your talking about. M3 holeshots work awsome but wear out quick

Yeah I am looking for long lasting tire that has good grip. I also bash at various spots so need an all around tire. I was running the badlands stretched onto LPR's on my e-revo. Good grip in most places but was a bit shifty on my main bash spot. Any other ideas, I am not brand specific so any brand that will fit the LPR rim I am open to.
