Only other question is do rubber require any prep? For instance, heat or traction compound?
Jack is often the choice for carpet, mostly because it does'nt have the strong smell that paragon does. And that can be an advantage in an enclosed space.

This is exactly what killed rubber racing last time. Guys started playing with different inserts, and rim stiffness and tire compounds and soon you had ten different tire setups in your pit box... big money. Instead of working on setups guys just swapped tires... didnt help them learn much.

Thats when foam took over in WI.... the theory was "all you need are Plaids and Purples" to run foam. Sounded good... they lasted a long time and with one compound it was cheap... in theory that is... didnt quite work out that way

Anyway to avoid the same problems most tracks pick one or two Premounts so you cant swap inserts etc. Cheaper in the long run.

Personally I like Jaco Blues for carpet... didnt much care for the Greens when we ran them.

well i dont know about carpet. but on ashphalt sweeps understeer and have no grip unless the grip is there but they have a long wear range, last forever. havent tried the new low profile. absolutes are great cant get them anywhere anymore in australia anyway! sorex is a very stable tire, dont know about jaco greens but presume should be good from what ive heard. also there is a lot of new tires, look at price. ones i have seen be very quick and good price are top no mark, 32s should be good for you and dont change much after first run, stay very grippy. ive seen one racer who whenever bolts on xenons has unseen steering so they could be another choice. but i would say get a set of all and try between racers make a decision together and just run that one!!!
