Default Foam Selection?

As the title would suggest, I am keen to understand what is considered to be the best foams to be used in 1/10th ep in-doors?
Also, in the past I have had good results from the TRC range but I can't remember what hardness was used.

Thanks in advance.
Richard Clarke.

Nowadays we are running Double Pink or Magenta all the way around. Make sure to use the latest 53mm diameter wheels from Jaco, BSR or Parma.

You run the same hardness front and rear?
I used to use a soft foam on the back and a harder foam on front.

We used to run foams with a ring of orange on the outer edge but the main compounds were the same front and rear.

All of the current setups are for same compound all around and the cars are just as easy to drive (or easier) than before.

Look into the Jaco Prism or Parma Pro 53 foam tires. Like Adrian said, depending on setup and track conditions, magenta or double pink all the way around. You don't need the double pink/orange fronts.
