Default Corally color vs. "US"

Can anyone tell me which colors of Corally's scheme match (are closest to) Purple Fronts and Grey Rears that I use on my Carpet Knife?

Corally 1/12th wheels from least grippy to grippiest:
Green
Silver
Silverstar
Gold
Goldstar

that's the chart on the back of the wheels.. then I have some Corally "pinks" which I have no idea what they are and/or where they fit in...

Any ideas?

Kinda funny how the industry can not seem to use plain ole durometer ratings instead of their own personal scheme. Did you give up the CK in favor of the Corally? Kinda curious as I just picked up a CK and looking at the box about to begin a build of it tonight.

SILVER fronts and GOLD rears are the normal choice for the UK tracks. These are used when the AE guys are using Purple and Grey.

Thanks for the info guys.

Fasttrak: I have 3 Corallys, a couple of 12L's and the CK.

Since getting back into it, I've only ran two weekends now. Last week I ran the CK in modified and the Corally in stock. This coming Sunday I'll run the Corally in mod and the CK in stock and see how lap times/the feel compares.

I definitely like the way you can work on the Corally with just your hands though!

back in 1992 I had a Corally and a 12L and I greatly preferred the way the Corally handled transitions.. but many of my friends liked the 12L better.

Choice is the spice of life

Cheers!
Geek.

There is a shore hardness chart somewhere on the Corally UK site. although i can't remember where it is!! In the Uk some drivers running AE use Corally Silver/Gold tyres.

I believe that by popular demand Corally has mounted up , purples, pinks, and so on. call superior hobbies and ask for Mike he knows his 1/12 scale stuff and can help you out with the car.
