Check the HPI website for set-up sheets. I think there is a carpet set-up there.

There is a carpet setup on the HPI Eurpoe sight. Basicly, what you need to remember is the Pro 3 likes to be setup a little softer than most other cars. If you dont have a top deck though, you dont realy need to bother with setup too much, because the car flexes so much that the chassis twists instead of the suspension compressing, so it will be hard to feel the changes you make.

Default Carpet set-ups

I didn't see a carpet set-up on the HPI site either. One thing is, I'm almost positve that you will need one of the upper deck kits to remove some of the chassis flex if your going to race on carpet. The car will flex too much and be slow in the corners without one.

SuperRooster, go there and use this setup. It works for both rubber tires and foam tires, it's a good setup.
