Hello!

I'm from a belgian club and we would like to get a brand new RCP track for our new local. The kyosho-dealer says at the boss of the shop that a RCP track will be easily degraded if people walk on it or don't care of it. And so, the boss isn't very keen on buying one...

Here's my questions:

1)How to clean RCP, I saw that a good vacuum can do this and in case of more "serious" traces a mop can help if not too much "watered". Can you confirm? Or give trick for us who are noobs in RCP?

2)This track will be in a public room of a shop. And so, not only our club will be able to go and ride on it. We know that our members will be caring for not to walk on the track, but we can't be sure everyone can respect that.
(Even if a red pannel says "Don't walk on the track")
And so, what about the dust/dirt that this type of actions can leave on the track? Can we wash it easily, or will the track be considerably degraded by this?

Thanks very much to whom may answer!

The track will not degrade from walking on it. It holds up quite well to foot traffic. The only thing that can happen by walking on the track is you may have foot prints appear if the area surrounding the track is dusty. To remove the dust prints you can use a damp rag or mop to clean the tiles. Regular vaccuming can also help to keep the track clean.

We have clubs who use RCP for their racing events and daily activities. They are still using the same original track and it has been a few years.

Wow!

That's a pretty fast answer! :D
Thank you very much for answering so quickly.

I'm personnally very interested in a RCP track. For the durability of the grip and the fact that on a RCP track, impacting the walls will not result in a break of the body.

We'll see what the boss wil say...

I've found that the squeegee attachment normally used for wet cleanup on my shop vac works great for vacuuming RCP track. The rubber squeegee allows just enough space for the nozzle not to stick to the track all the time.
