Default 1/8 Scale Foams differences?

There are so many foams out there now for 1/8 scale. What is the difference in stiffness between them? I know the AKA mediums are really stiff.

I too am curious. I've got some of the Pro-Line V2's on the way, and I have some AKAs. The AKAs are definitely very firm, but they soften up over time and actually become much nicer. I still have the foams from the first set of AKAs that I purchased.

Kind of confusing with all the new Inserts coming out! Here is how I see it:

The Black V2 Evo PL Inserts are th newer version of the Blue V2 PL Inserts, The Black ones are a bit softer, Better on Rough Tracks.

The Blue V2 PL Inserts are more like the AKA Inserts, A bit Firmer than the Blue V2 Evo Inserts, Better on Smoother, Hard Packed Tracks.

The AKA Inserts are nice and firm, But over time they do break in and get to be a bit softer. Once you run them through a set of tires, They are pretty broke in and ready to be used in a new set of tires.

The JC Profiled Blue Inserts are similar to AKA Inserts, But softer. After 3-4 Runs, They begin to break in, And get softer. I have been trying these, Adn really like them!
