Default Rubber on Carpet?

I'm thinking of racing rubber tires on carpet. Whta should I expect? Is it close to a normal/carpet set up, or?

Setup for Rubber tire on carpet is closer to rubber tire asphalt than it is a foam tire carpet setup. One-ways are normal for rubber tire carpet. Maybe go up 1 spring rate front and rear and less rear toe.
