I like them. Some say they're too hard. YMMV.

We talking 2wdor 4wd inserts? Std or closed cell?
I like the 2wd std inserts, especially for outdoor use. I have used the CC inserts in SC, and they were good..

I use the closed cell 2WD front inserts for an indoor high traction clay. I have rears as well but have not used them. I'm currently using the rear Proline's. I have the AKA's on the way to try outdoors.

Rear Proline closed cell ? I have never liked the Proline std foams-(packing peanuts IMO)

Very nice, I am biased to the Trinity Bomb's in firm for indoor-std for outdoor. The tracks around me are all med bite with dust, so the firm stuff doesn't work that well, unless the traction comes up and we blow the track off..What are your tracks like?

It's pure clay. Traction all day long. Our outdoor is awesome as well. It's grooves up quickly but has a fine powered that gets blown off between rounds. I use And-1 foams in blue JC Barcodes V2 with JC Groovys in front.

The JConcepts 2wd fronts fell awesome!!!... the rears are kinda stiff, but have been workin fine for me. I just got the AKA rear foams in the mail today, so I'll give them a try soon.
