MX and MC will last longer than M3 because they are harder compounds. For carpet, I would start with MC. If that does not give you the traction you are looking for, then I would try M3 next.

I hope this helps,

I just looked at Proline compound chart. And according to it, I would assume the hard compound would be MC. Maybe I am reading it wrong though.

Here is the Compound Chart.

MX and MC are similar in hardness. Just different rubber for different conditions (MX designed for outdoor, hot, blue groove conditions).

The suburbs are not available in M2 so that is, unfortunately, not an option.

the MC tire is great has a lost of grip and is an awsome tire, but in 2 weeks you will be buying another set because they will be close to slicks.

i run on and indoor clay track with Hotbodies beams on my losi 4X4 SCT and they have almost 2 months on them and still have alot of life and have just as good traction
