Default 2wd and 4wd buggy on Carpet

Do you have some experience in racing 2wd and 4wd on Carpet Tracks? Can you give me some general advice (tires, shocks...).

Thank you in advance.

I don't myself but alot of European racers in th UK and other countries race on carpet. Oople.com is the perfect place to ask, not saying RCTech isn't though .

We did 19T buggy indoors when I was in connecticut. I ran road rages. Didn't really change my setup too much from what was my outdoor one as I liked how things still felt over the big bmx black jumps we were using.

Others were (at least the truck guys) slamming there vehicles down and running them that way. I didn't like how my buggy felt coming off of jumps.

You could contact some guys who race at RC Madness indoors as I think they ran stadium trucks inside over jumps and get similar setup advice.

Does your track allow buggies indoor? I know some get concerned that the shock towers can tear up the carpet, that's why they tend to run truck indoor since the body covers them.

I had a XXT that I got from an indoor racer, it had a sway bar and stiffer springs, but was otherwise similar to offroad setup.
