Yeah, on carpet, a set of TakeOff CS-27's will last a LOOOONG time before you notice any real wear. If it tells you anything, at the last Novak US TC Champs(on carpet), CS-27's were the handout tire for rubber tired classes, & the one set that you got with your paid entry would last the ENTIRE event, I only needed one extra pair for myself that weekend(which was practice on Wednesday, all day Thursday, qualifying on Friday & Saturday & the mains on Sunday), & only then because I wanted to try applying some CA to a bit of the fronts' contact patch to reduce grip & take away some steering(had GOBS of grip all weekend). I didn't even wear off the little seams on them that you see when they're brand new......
