It looks pretty fast to me. Have you checked out the free track maker program? There is a link to it on one of the threads and it also allows you to save the track deisgn in .jpg. I can't remember the exact name of it since I am on the wrong computer right now, but it allows the user to design an RCP Track set up as well as a few other types.

Here is the link to Zanthrax.nl and the TrackMaker software program.

I just tried the first link and it worked fine, but when I clicked on the link to download TrackMaker it didn't work either. You may want to do a search of the threads and see if there was an alternate link.

As far as suggesting something to make your track out of I don't have any suggestions since I own an RCP Mini-Tile. I have ran the Z's on Ozite though and didn't care for it.

Good luck.

i have a modest rcp track and i've raced on painted plywood. both offer really different type of control/handling. i have to admit, the painted plywood was fun to slide on the turns but the safety and traction of an rcp track can't be beat.

take a look at latency's track. he has a very nice basement track and has now built a equally nice foam track over the wood one.
