Default TC5R on Carpet

According to the AE site, the TC5R can be used for both indoor-high grip carpet and outdoor low grip asphault.

That being said, I am looking to get into some TC racing (indoor stock carpet) just to keep me into racing thru the winter (Outdoor is just about over in MN)

The TC6 is a ways out yet, and the only TC5s left are the R versions.

Can one run the TC5R on carpet (succesfully)?

My buddy won first place last week with an Associated TC5R up against a some high end Tamiya touring cars at a local carpet track. I would say it is definately possible... although overall driving skills/experience/consistancy/setup will probably make more of a difference than the car itself with these high-end touring cars.

Well my concern is would the extra flex be too much of a crutch to overcome
