I have been testing the EXP30 on carpet for about a month now. The testing was done side by side between EXP30, Jaco Blue (32), and SJR 28. Well we all know about Jaco Blue on carpet.

The SJR28 are awesome for the first 3 minutes to get hot laps in, but then they pick up too much rubber off the carpet and begin to snap traction roll.

The EXP30 has the same grip like the SJR28 from the start and remain the same traction throughout the 6 minutes. After the run, the tires are noticeably cleaner and no rubber buildup. This is the consistency that every rubber on carpet racer is looking for.

Testing was done with both Jack-the-gripper and Stickyfingers.

Camber is critical for these tires.
Jaco Blue (32) F -2.5, R -3.5
SJR28 F-2.0, R-2.0
EXP30 F -2.0, R -2.0
I will continue testing next weekend. The 36" of snow killed this weekend.

I also plan to take a few sets to Fastcats and test up there in a couple weeks.
