Yes, the grey/black/Orange tracks are "In Stock". Also available are the spare parts kits. All in stock and shipping.

RCP edited the original message today to get rid of the buggy track reference. So I assume whatever they were working on has been canceled.

Ah, that was cool.
Much easier to see a dark car on the grey tracks.

A friend got his in the other day. I think he ordered 3 wide L's and 2 wide inside turns so far. 3 L's weren't as much track as he thought and so he's ordering 1 more. He didn't realize how much of the old track he had. If anyones in central or southern ohio and wants to come run just let me know.
Just like in the compare pictures the guy did above it is much lighter then even those pictures show. You don't realize it until you put them side by side. Dark cars show up better on this track. It's really weird though bringing your car off and it's covered in grey dust instead of black.

Angry Traction issue

Is anyone having traction issues with the special edition track? We just started racing on it for the first time today trying to do an HFAY race and the cars are slipping and sliding everywhere. Other then that, it's harder to notice the bump out rails.

You still have to drive "some" rounds on it before you get grip.
And if the rest of our track is used a lot, there will be a big difference.

Give it a couple of evenings and then see what happens.

Of course, I asume you have cleaned it before you used it.

I have to disagree nobrainer, I've owned 6 wide L's 4 brand new out the box and they have a TON of traction to the point that my car would roll over in turns. This track had absolutely no traction at all. It's a struggle to keep your car going in a straight line much less getting through a turn. Is there anyway to bring the traction up?

I only got the 30cm track and expansion. Tested on 2 different 30cm tracks and it have behaved the same. So it was only my experience.
But since the Wide L's are different when it comes to traction, I can't give you any help.
Sorry

The material texture is identical. I have to wonder if there may be a manufacturing residue still on the tile?

We ran into the same problem. I bought 2 wide L's a year ago and they had all kinds of traction right out of the box. All I had to do was vacuum it and it was good to go. This grey track doesn't have near the traction of the black track. We've ran 3 race days on it, and it is starting to get better, but it is no where near what the black tracks traction is, new or old.

It did seem to be a little better thought he last time we ran, you just had to be easy on the trigger, and that's using 70t motors. Something is different with the grey track compared to the old stuff. They may say it's the same material, but something is different. The traction is no where near what the black is out of the box.
