Default Tamiya Slick Tires

Anybody knows the difference in characteristics of the Tamiya slick tires? Like whats the difference with the Type A, B, B3, C, etc.? In other brands like Sorex (i.e. 28, 32, 36, 40) its temp-based. So how is it for Tamiya? TIA

A = Softest (cool weather) tire
B = med / hard (warm / hot weather) tire - Discontinued about 4-5 years ago
B2 = Replaced the B, was absolute rubbish (also discontinued)
B3 = replaced the Type B2 and similar to the B
C = Carpet track tire

Thanks so much Panda for the fast response. One last question, how different are the plain Tamiya racing slicks or the 60D tires?

B3 is too hard for carpet, go with type C or type A for carpet.

I have a M05, but tire would be the same for the M03. Ive heard the S-Grips work there. Has anyone run these indoors?

ok same as m03 so basicly slicks on back and radials on front to keep the shinny side up.
with the m03 i was full compound on rear and only about 1/3 inner of front would that be about the same on carpet for m05?
