It's not a track, it's an "expansion" pack that contains 8 straight 50cm tiles, rails, and pins. Basically you can make 4 straight tile lengths. The photo below shows 4 off-road tiles joined together under the RCs and 4 on-road mini-tiles.

TNB, what are the traction differences between the off-road and the regular tiles? From the pictures it looks like, other than the grooves for a cobblestone look, they are still pretty smooth.

I maybe selling my wide L soon to "downsize" to a 96-mini tile due to space and am considering the off-road expansion tiles for it since I now really love the Overlands as well as the other K cars.

The off-road expansion tiles are very slick compared to the on-road tiles. If you look at one of the very first RCP Track layouts I used in the warehouse, I set up a checkerboard pattern. The MR-02s would flip very easily in that section unless they went straight through that section although the tiles didn't appear to bother the F1s as much. I did like using the off-road mini-tiles with the Mini-Tile 96 so that I could widen some of the turns to remind me of the kitty litter used in the real F1 races--in other words, instead of bouncing off of the rails, there was a little more room to play with though you could still spin out. ;)

Thank you very much! I think I found the right album for that Layout 9 has a checkerboard pattern in it.
