Foam is a rubber and they are the best hands down. But if you are talking about the none foam slip and slide tires then I would go with the sorex 28 they work very well for stock racing..

Sorex 28R's all around w/ red HPI inserts mounted on Yokomo Dish rims. That's what you should run. Ya Jesse i agree foam is the best, but you gotta be able to setup a car and drive it.

I've had some good results with Tamiya tires with the Tamiya molded inserts... but if you beleive the backroom whispers the 24mm Tamiya tires are made by Sorex anyway... but I ain't gonna be quoted on that

I'm using Schumacher white: Good grip (on our track) and pretty good lasting.

If the track allows them, Schumacher yellow minipins are by far the best tyre to use. Wear rates not too good though.

Nexus- depending on how much mechanical traction the carpet is producing, you will probably find that Sorex 24/20's are the best. You might be able to go up to 28/24s. I would use the Echo yellow insert or HPI red for stock racing. If you don't understand what 24/20 means- that's 24's in the front and 20's in the rear. Wouldn't you agree Mo?

I think mimipins and other tyres popular in the UK only work really well on Primafelt carpet, but you're right yellow mini-pins rule on some typed of carpet. Nearly all the US tracks use Ozite.

We run 24/20s with HPI red inserts, 24/24s with HPI red inserts and 24/24s with HPI red inserts in the front with HPI yellow inserts in the rear. Those are the three combos that get used here the most.

Jason it sound's like what I run in the winter time here in Japan for Tire and Inserts Mostly 24/24 or 28/24 with the Echo inserts....but then again this is on Asphalt
