Nice track.

Is the layout adaptable? Modular dividers?

The layput ie easily changable by removing the grass-like areas (double sided tape) and cutting new ones. The entire 16x8 area is surfaced. The entire thing also splits into 8x8 sections and other 8x8 sections can be added.

how do you like the track surface?

Can you still drift with out having to try to hard?

You can drift the rear end as much or as little as you want. Pretty realistic surface. Even looks like real asphalt!! :)
