its not RCP but it gets the job done. its currently 20x12/16, but we are about to redo it and add another 8 feet in length. itll be set up similar at this end but will have 'gates' and offer multiple layouts.

its styrofoam. its a foam board thats used for insulating houses. we had an addition put onto our office and there were a few sheets laying around. i taped them together and put a car on 'em.

the cars drift great on here, but the old guys that work with me dont like drifting. weve put a plasti-coat spray down on it to give it a little more grip. you can set your car up for what you want now. i would consider it similar to the slick side of the RCP tracks ive seen.

my miniZ is set up for racing because i cant hang with the boys drifting when they are racing. ive got a couple xmods set up for drifting, and one of the other guys my age does too. im hoping ill get a Z for christmas, so i can set one up for strictly drift. i atleast hope i get some gift certificates so i can hook mine up good enough to drift fast ;)


byebye, hopefully that covered the track Q, and thanks for them compliment on the car.

We ended up replacing the tape that holds the walls down with red, white, and blue duct tape. It really made it stand out from the grey that holds the bottom pieces together.

We also ended up getting a piece of carpet and making a much better racing surface. The carpet is far superior to this foam material, and is much mre enjoyable to drive on. We can actually run 2wds on the new track :D

Check out the pics of it in my current thread "hrdrvrs stuff" (link below).
