For CS-22 on indoor carpet, it is unneccessary to use tire warmers or else you will overheat the tire while you are running (2min+) and then your car will be very difficult to drive.

Just drop the car on the carpet and you are ready to go.

Only use tire warmer when you use CS-27.

Tyre warmers for sure.... unless you want to cut a couple of warm up laps before a race. tyre warmers make a huge difference...

I would either leave the tyre warmers on the car for the entire race duration at a low temp like 30 deg... or I'd hit them about 1 or 2 mins before a race at 40-50 deg... then race.

keeping the warmers on for the entire meet is ideal as it keeps the tyres stable, having them warm up and cool down too much is what really wears them out fast...

It does work well and give more consistant grip over the run. As the temperature indoors tend to be around 21 degrees the tyres work better at around 30 degrees.
