100% traction would be the most efficient driving surface. You shouldnt have any problems racing on carpet. You need less power to accelerate the same with the traction it provides. you dont get a freewheeling motor, which is bad on the esc.

What would burn out your esc faster?
Placing your truck on carpet and holding it in one spot, and hitting the throttle.
Placing your truck on dirt and holding it in one spot, and hitting the throttle.
The dirt acts almost like a slipper clutch for your motor, which reduces that initial burst of power you are sending through your esc.
