Problem of threads like this is that people always call the brand they're racing with ...
And to hook up with that tradition: The Asso TC5 is a good car on carpet. Just take a look at Juho winning the LRP TCM

Don't know if it's for real, because I didn't experience it myselve, but I heard that the MI3 is very hard to get a good setup with. I know a guy who was sponsored to go driving with a Mi3, and gave it back, he rather bought his own car than drive with that one... Don't know how true this is, but we don't want you to buy a car you maybe won't like. Don't know how experienced you are with tuning a car.

Default MI3

MI3
actually has enough adjustability make it a force on carpet rubber tire or foam.

for foams...the carpet decks are awesome...virtually zero flex.

Hi Yokemad, what club you running at?

As people have already said on here, if you ask 100 people you will get 100 different answers.
At my club (Southend) we run a high grip carpet every Tuesday night. We have members still running XXX-S and setting good times against some running cyclones, MI2's, MI3 (one off), Yok's, PHI's and Xray's.

I think based on my own experiences over the last 9-10 months that the best option is the T2'007 US if you are only interested in racing on the carpet. I run a EU because I do alot of out-door racing and some rubber on carpet.
When the foams go on the car I fit a diff to the front, 30lb springs to the front and 28lb to the rear, fit all the top-deck screws and the fancy ali posts which join the top-deck to the chassic and thats it. 9 times out of 10 no one is faster on foams.

What ever you chose, have fun and enjoy grip!

Thanks, Richard.
