Default 26 or 28mm foams..?

Ok ...im gonna pick up some foams for the indoor season. I've used Jaco 24 & 28mm, but it's been like 2yrs since i ran carpet. Now noticed there are 26 & 28mm. I noticed TRC are 26mm. What should be better? Any other brands that stand out?

Jaco 28mm foams are awsome. Purple-orange/purple or dbl.pink-orange/dbl-pink. Trc is in the process of switching to 28mm foams, 26mm is the old stock.

i like to run 26mm front and 28mm back like the nitro guys do, more rear traction but lets the car turn in faster and better with the 26mm fronts on, or i like to run 28mm fronts and 30mm rear..basicly what ever i can get my hands on here...purple/plaid,cyan/magenta componds work well up at my track..not sure if this helps any but just thought i put my .02cents in

I always use Ellegi 26 mm for my electric touring cars.
