if u need more grip,use soft inserts.u will get the most grip tis way,but do take note tat this is at the expense of ur tyres' ;ife span.

here's a rule 2 remember :
soft inserts = best grip,but worst life span for tyres
hard inserts = poorest grip,but will prolong the life span of ur tyres...

wat 2 use will depends on ur car's setup also...

Default HPI 24mm inserts

TRL;

HPI 24mm molded inserts offer 5 different firmness compounds with a little less air gap than the Yokomo inserts.
Just another tuning option availible to you.

Hi,

Here in France if you run modified racing you are allowed with Take-Off Corally Type A and B tires only.

The take-off corally type A is very similar to the 22's series and we found the best results when running on carpet with the Orion JB Foam Blue (med) ; they are very light inserts made of two parts, there is a small ring that you need to glue on the middle of wheel then you take the other part and put it in your tire.
They also exist in soft and hard as well.

Take care to weigh your car when using Orion JBFoam inserts, with the Yokomo MR4TC Special I had to put 35g more to reach 1504 g...

I run also with Yokomo 037 F inserts and found that it works also.

Hope it helps
