I thought of making a outdoor track out of that Grass stuff they use at Putt Putt places. Can anyone tell me whats this is called and how much it costs.

astroturf

at my locak home depot, it's $0.39 a square foot.

I made a track, well, I am still making it...I am trying to find some ozite carpet to use for the track surface, and I already have the astroturf cut for the track road edges. I don't think it would be a very good surface to drive on. All the mini-golf places have this stuff, but it is really worn down so it's not fuzzy like it is when it's new.

Yeah, I just thought it might be to thick. I plan on using wood now.(Once I get enough)

you could also try what i did and use wood putty over the wood. it is very gripy, as long as it is smooth.:p

people use it to fill cracks in wood, or nail holes. it comes in a plastic bucket, and can be found in your local hardware store for a few bucks:p

Now for the updates. The tack is finished:D it's much better then I thought it would be. I used old garden hoses for the sides(They bend for corners;) ) I have two jumps(a bridge hehe) /""""|"""\
I even have pit lanes!!! and 5.5 turns. I'll try and show it on Zanthrax's track maker.
