Default What is the common weight rule for Foam tire TCs on Carpet?

I really would like to know what the genreally accepted weight rule is for TC with Foams on carpet would be.

Roar lists 1525 grams which seems heavy.

What does the Indoor Champs in Cleveland and the Snowbirds use?

What do your local tracks use?

Last year we used 1400 grams, but some complained it was too light compared to other tracks.

Any help?
