That is a hard question to answer, I think. Honestly, I would also like to hear opinions/suggestions. Maybe one day I will get to drive on-road on a astro track!

I run on that once a month. Grip is low, ours is very worn so its like the length of carpet. Most people get by with foams, I've had more luck with rubber, which seems to feel more consistent. I've only run one rubber compound so far, that was Sweep exp 30's. I've got a set of Sweep QTS 28s to try this weekend, I'll let you know how they go. Mostly its 42sh fronts and 37sh rears for foams. In terms of setup I mostly run the same as out door parking lot setup. Soft spings, ~40wt oil, roll bar front and rear (for indoor only, rear only for outdoor). Biggest difference is about 2* rear toe for outdoor and 3* for astro turf.

I've since abandoned rubber, just can't quite get it to work. I race 1/10 17.5 boosted TC, but I have recorded a video of the clubs 1/12 final. Heres a link.
