Default Asphalt tire choice

So I bought a TC used on the forums and got some tires with it that worked GREAT on the asphalt track I run at, but didn't know what they were except they were on much more wheels. They lasted 2 race/practice days.

The track is really smooth and gets treated with grape soda before we race. The fast guys say the best tire is Sorex 32RY, but I reaching out to see if there are any other choices out there for rubbers that might work. I tried Jaco Blues over the weekend and they didn't have near as much grip as the others.

So I guess my question is what is your favorite medium grip asphalt rubber tire of choice?

Solaris Med's or Hard depending on the track temp, should work great.
