Default Got set up for carpet, and completely confused!

I'm confused about the types of foam tires for carpet. Now I know a little bit about shore ratings for tyres (helped set up 1:1 cars for tracks) but the color codes for foamies? and the different manufactures? so confused.

Which manufacturer has what?

some manufacturers use shore ratings, others colour code. You should be able to find the actual shore ratings on manufactures website or a quick search on google.

for example


Pink 30
Dpink 35
Purple 40
Dpurple 45
Double pink orange 35/50
Purple/Orange 40/50

Stick with one brand you like and can get. Don't forget different brands have different offsets.
