But what kind of traction compound use?
Hudy, MR33 or LRP one?
Use what everyone else there is using. Mixing traction compounds on carpet can be really bad.

Yes, right, in order not to damage the carpet!

Unfortunately nowadays we heard mostly there's controlled tires without provided traction compound but of course mostly on outdoor race.

The only country in Asia which had both controlled and provided or even banned of any compound has only in Japan's indoors.

Mostly race in the rest of Asia has got only controlled or even "all open".

Which is very different than America and Europe.

That's why I am here to asking for archieving some datas.

It's not just about protecting the carpet. Different tracks have different grip levels. You'll get a better answer of what works from the people that race on the same surface as you.

What's the point in recommending Sorex tyres when they have been out of production for about 10 years?

This is one of the reasons why "open" tyre rules are a nightmare. I used to race in a series that was open tyre. To be at the sharp end, you needed have access to "old stock" Sorex 28s. Which I didn't.

Open tyre is fine for club meetings where you are just running for fun. If you are competing, there needs to be a control tyre. In fact, many series have gone to a control additive as well. It's still the best drivers that win, but at least it's a level playing field, with no trick tyre combinations being used to get an advantage.

To answer the original question, run what is recommended at the track. Or just copy the fast guys. If they won't tell you what tyres they're using, it's probably not the kind of track that you want to be involved with.

Not only pre-glued combo ones, I had also asking for self- combinations too.
About that preglued combo you have mentioned is already discontinued.
