Foams or rubber?

With my Pro2, rubber on carpet, GM M1 is great. Schumacher Dragon is also great.

I like rubber on carpet, driving rubber tires on carpet will make you a better driver when you switch to foam tires. Plus your setup skills will
be honed to perfection after pulling your hair out for the perfict rubber tire set-up.
