Default Team Sorex Tire Insert Guide

Hi all
I am looking for information on the different Sorex tire inserts, like a guide on what inserts you should use when, that sort of thing.

Any info would be great.

Regards
Gary

Is that chart unchanced?
Is Sorex your recommendation on inserts?
I have been reading a bit on inserts so i have an idea about where to go. ( a bit harder inserts) Im just thinking im going to settle for one brand of inserts. And for that i would like clear info and lots of options. Color codes are nice too to make order in the pit box.
Also what does A, B and C stands for? clearing/gap to tire?

I tend to pick up a little bit of debree from the track due to me often not running tire compount so often. Depends on whom car im driving and tire. But is there any insert tuning that can help on the "issue?"

Correct A, B, C is the air gap.

I think the chart is from the passed when the cars were 1500g.

I now use inserts that are slightly softer than sorex medium most of the time where as I would have used medium B or firm B with a 1500g car in the same conditions.

Good luck.

A = least air gap
C = most air gap

Thanks.
So everyone is just saying go with Sorex. I have noted them not having color coded inserts.

And is there a online shop you recommend? there is not a lot to choose from at rcmart. Most variation is Sweep. Anyone got a similar chart for them?

Sorex inserts do have different colours but they are quite close.

Medium is a lighter grey, if you put medium and firm beside each other as you will see the difference.
