Look great !!
But I wouldn't like the crap the tape on my floor, use gaffertape instead of duct/ducktape. That leave less residue.
The gardenhose thing is nice, I think i will use that.
I thinking of adding rings of velcro every 5 inch or so and stick that to some loose roll of carpet which gives good grid to the car and the velcro and doesn't hold lint to get sucked in the car.
This goal it to make it:
* Easily modified
* Easy the move when it get's in the way.
I have a roll of velcro for shortening patchcables an instrumentcables which can be cut in pieces. Gardenhose is easily bought, the carpet will be very hard to find I guess...
hey, that's pretty cool.... I'd probably do that if i had more room in my house, but heh.... i live in a small house.... anyways, does your mini-z grip good on that surface? My mini z spins out on hardwood floor... lol....
The grip is very poor; we have to pretend we are racing in the rain!
I like the idea of a roll-up track, as would my long suffering lady, just need to find something I can roll-up, make a track on and drive on. In Thailand. Which means I have to be able to see it in a shop as I sure as hell couldn't explain what I wanted in Thai; difficult enough in English! Especially when my Thai is limited to phrases such as "this food is good; please give me some more" and "you have a beautiful face, I think I love you"
... I never thought of that possibility. Would also explain why the car exploded in a shower of sparks when it crossed over the cable. This is known as the "electric fence approach" to race track construction.
i find that rope is the best for track walls.. Make sure that you go to the flea market and get a good deal. i got 100 feet of 1 inch diameter rope for only 5 bucks, that leaves the other dollar for duct tape that's how my track is.
don't run behind cows... they have good brakes
