Default Difference between Ride inserts

Can anyone tell me what is the difference between these Ride inserts:

MS24-C20
MS24-C30
MS24-C40

I am assuming "MS" stands for medium-soft, so would that mean the 20,30,40 refer to the thickness of the inserts?

Also, how do they compare to Hara or Sorex inserts??

Hi... I also want to know the effect of softer vs harder insert.

Why some inserts are too thin creating too much air gap to tires ? Should I fill in the gap with foams ?

I think that 20,30 and 40 is the tickness of the insert!
and the difference between harder and softer inserts is: how softer the insert the more grip you have in the front how harder the insert the less grip you have in front, so a soft insert works good on a Low grip track and a harder insert works best on high grip track!
The best insert for carpet track is JB Blue Thin, and for asphalt track is Xenon Yellow or Xenon Orange!

What insert do you suggest for this track condition :

little bit bumpy track with quite rough asphalt surface.
the grip level is quite poor.
quite technical track.
