I actually used to run an astroturf oval during halftime of Arena Football games. It took us a few times to find something to hook up since at first we were running carpet oval pan cars. We eventually settled on TC3's with HPI rally tires. Lot's of fun.

IMO red clay is the only way togo.. its Super fast it will laydown good traction. and should stay together easier... but regular dirt with proper additives will work great...

Whatever is most difficult to drive. If it's not a challenge, it's not any fun.

Cleans your car as you drive....... Car will come off the track cleaner then when you started.........J/K


The soap/water mixture is supposed to help prevent the track from getting rutted up. In a way it glues the dirt together. I think cheap laundry detergent that comes in a 5 gallon pail is whats used the most
