Battery charger and extra wheels can hold a towel down pretty good

Now if there are tornado force winds I'd worried about more than loosing small screws

I have the Upgrade RC rubber mat and put that on top of my Mugen pit mat (sorta like a carpet) that covers the entire table. The new gray Mugen pit mat is huge.

+1 on the mugen mat. I have that one in Blue. The cool part is its soft like a bathroom floor rug and has a rubber sort of coating on the bottom so it doesnt slide around like a regular towel.

I don't use a mat. I DO, however, use a magnetic tray to hold screws and parts.

My towel is a worn out pink color. But why would you worry about a towel flying away when your car is on it all day except for those 40 minutes your actually racing?

I don't use a mat, but I've been contemplating the purchase of one. I just don't understand why they are so expensive. The profit margins on these things must be 1000%.
