I use Calcium Chloride on my practice track. I have heard people say it'll rust everything. I always wonder if the people saying this stuff have any experience with it? To be honest I haven't really noticed it being a problem. I'm pretty conservative in my use of it though. Maybe this is why I haven't noticed any problems with corrosion? The small amount I use though I do think it makes a big difference in keeping moisture in the track. I started just by doing a small section to see if it made a difference at all and I was very happy with the results. I only put it on maybe twice a year. It seems to have a residual effect for a little while. It works great for dirt and clay to help it hold moisture. I get by on less than a bag a year.

I wonder what the active ingredient in trackmoist is?

Rc club house in Warren, MI uses a black dirt and clay mixture. Granted most of it is clay, but it has incredible grip and is super tacky. When it is humid out, you can hear your feet stick to the track as your walking across it. It is cheaper to do a mix versus just clay. why? because the people you get the dirt from doesnt have to be as picky with it. just like on the farm i work on, one dairy farm is picky and doesnt want bales with rotten areas in them so it costs more because it costs us more man power and fuel to pick through it all.

Did you notice increased tire wear or hardening of the track? Or did it really just keep dust down.

sugar does not attract bugs.

i dumped 200 lbs. on my track last year which is less then 10' from my house and have zero bug issues.
