Anyone know which compound of VP Pro tires are best for indoor clay? Normally run gold barcodes or ions (MC I think).

Think VP Pro come in Soft and Super Soft and Xtra Super Soft.

HB tyre compounds:
Pink compound is extra-soft for maximum traction at the cost of tread life.
Red compound is soft for racing or low-traction surfaces.
White compound is medium, great for practice and all-around use.
Blue compound is firm for high-bite tracks.

I realize the all the different companies are doing their own thing and all the rubber types they use are different from one brand to another, but I wish they could all get together and use the same color codes for their compounds. I don't care if super softs are blue, green, red, pink, purple, camo, chrome or what. Just make em all the same! It would make life a little easier for club guys that don't use one brand of tire all the time.

M4 is softer than MC. I run on a mix clay/dirt and the M4 give much much better traction but definitely dont last as long as MCs. The surface is very hard packed and everyone runs slicks with stiff foams and M4
