Funny thing, everybody's says baddly about Take-off, and sometimes I have a bad time with them ...

Kyosho has 6 different tires, wich type are you using? The G's or the regular ones? And with what insert?

I have liked Take-offs for outdoor. Never had luck with them indoor, then again I never owned a premount set.

Yes there are a lot of different kyosho tires I'm not sure how many there are for racing but there are dozens of them. I have never used the indoor tires but the ones I use are very good.

They are the 92014's

The insert varies depending on the track and the conditions.
I have about 30 or so different inserts but these are what I useually use sorex MB, MC and the kyosho foam insert depends on the day and the track.

I would really like to try a soft insert in the same profiles of the MB and MC does any one know if sorex make a Soft B and Soft C

From what i know and what i see, i don think sorex does make Soft B nor Soft C.
Usually i will run Medium B for practice/bashing and Medium C for race.
I think the difference between B n C inserts are the thickness. C would have more airgap hence is thinner compared to B. I did tried Speed Mind soft (yellow) inserts but the airgap is almost the same with B or A.

Default pit tires

I know most people dont use pits cause they are hard to find but they just released them again.i have almost 100 runs on a set. and they just wore through to the belt on the fronts.we are only allowed to use tq orange.. tires only seem to get faster as they wear down. I scuff them on a truer or they glaze over .. tire stays dull till its gone. the best combo seems to be 27/24 for stock and 30/27 for mod. no air gap seems to help the tires .most of the wheel gets bent before the tires performance falls off.

Gotta say that the pits always worked very very well they had a great tolerance to different condition and provided more grip then take off once they had done a fair few runs

well you can check the temp rating of the 28's which I think is about 30deg C of the track if the track is higher then they will go off
