I usually run almost identical setups from high bite carpet to our asphalt. Usually have to dial more traction in for the carpet. That should give an idea about the bite levels. I have seen many non Coliseum regulars traction roll all over the place.

Hanulec,
1/12th scale tire wear at the C is extremely low. the grip level is so high and the surface is so smooth that tire were is almost nil. we've been running pink rrs and magenta fts with good success. And we run them really small just like you would do at a major carpet race. don't know what tires the shop stocks. FYI, the challenge at the C is usually having too much grip especially too much front grip. So you might want to keep that in mind with your tire selection and starting chassis setup.
