Take-Off CS-22's or 27's and Sorex 24's and 28's (depending on the grip level)

I just use the pre-glued tyres. Just takes out all the hassle of glueing tyres and testing different inserts. The pre-glued tyres are good

NOSRAM 24r OR 27R preglued are good as well. I used to use take of CS22s but found they were inconsistant from one set to another when buying.

Try the LRP VTEC 27R tyre (LRP VTEC 27R = Nosram 27R) with JB Blue thin inserts or the new VTEC White Soft (65086) inserts for max grip or the VTEC Green medium (65088) for a bit longer tyre life... you may find this faster than the preglued VTEC 27R which has the VTEC Blue Medium/Thin (65084) inserts...

I use sorex 24r front and rear and for inserts i use hpi red in the front and hpi yellow in the rear. works well on low, med traction and if its high traction i use sorex 28r front and back with same insert combo. it works weel for me.

the new muchmore 32 tyres are better than sorex and vtech on carpet, they are much more stable in low and high grip situations as the side wall doesnt flex alot

thanks jimmy maddison

they are a nightmare, you got to try to get as much heat in the first lap as possible, into the tyre, then not overheat the tyre, so you go from no grip, tyre warms up, it grips, then it gets warmer, and gets greasy, so slides, cools off, grips... grrrrr, we just ditched these at out local club.

listen to me for this one
Either v-tech`s or Nosram 24 r`s or 28rs
these are good dispite what others say
i go to a evening indoor carpet club on thursday`s & the top guy`s have used them all out there sorex`s ,muchmore (sorex) ones ,CS`s Rp`s
even some un named brand from china
they all use v-techs or nosrams now
we do have a major winter series coming along with LRP sponsership with the v-tech as a controll tyre
but these guy`s have been using these way before that was organised

Preglued v-tech or nosram`s
get a good 5-7 meeting out of them (on pace) but a good 10-15 meets just have a good time @ the club
