All done! I used Koolseal rubberized roof paint to finish off the styrofoam surface, installed truck cap tape along the sides for a bumper and capped the sides with foam pipe insulation. Were off to the races!

Viperdude,

Well done, that track is an artwork..

What I'd give to be able to run my CLK and F1 round that lovely oval..

Keep up the faith..

Nice work viperdude! Any chance of video footage of Mini-Zs doing some laps?

That is a great setup! Where did you get a big piece of styrofoam like that?

The track was made from many pieces of 1/2 inch styrofoam that was glued together with silicone sealant. It was very inexpensive even though it is 30 feet long.I plan to make a road track on the backstrech if we get bored of the oval.
Where can i get foam tires for my f1?

viperdude,

Where'd you get that styrofoam for the track? And how much did it cost you. I've been wanting to build a small track in my basement, (11 ft. X 12 ft.) and was wondering where to get the stuff and how much it costs. Also how big are the blocks you used?

That's one awesome track though! I wish I had that much room for one! Good work on it, I love the pic.

viperdude, GPM makes mounted foams for the F1, email the Shop if you'd like some. Thanks!

wow, thats impressive. No pit? lol, I was playing with that one guys (cant remember his username) track making program, lotta turn, even put a pit in because i had extra space ;)
sure would be fun. My room sure is huge, I should make up some cardboard and ducktape sideboards and put a track on the ground for when my Mini-Z comes in.
