Its just easier to get new foams..... But, you could probably run the foams until you cant run them anymore. You have to keep adjusting your ride height and such.

On high bite carpet tracks, smaller is better for a lot of reasons...I run mine real low in STOCK (2.12-2.18) in mod you'll want a bit more meat....

Most carpet racers true to 2.28-2.35 to start....

Hope this helps!!!
