All the straight sections are hard PVC. The curves are a more flexible pipe. I've spent hours on it marshalling and racing as have hundreds of others. It's a combination of both

You can't buy it at Home Depot. They only sell the cheap thin wall Black drain pipe.

Color non-perforated pipe (like the Pit uses) has to be special ordered from a drainage supply company like ADS.

Thank you, thats what I have said 3 times in this thread, he is not asking about the black pipe, everybody know that can be obtained no problem, he was asking about the white or colored pipe
It can also be ordered from any of teh links I posted

Default pipe

There can be other piping options found at a plumbing supply warehouse or irrigation supply in your area. HD supply might be an option. You can also check out thebluebook.com which is the yellow pages for contractors.

If you are looking for a hard pipe at a lower cost check out SDR 35 sewer pipe. It's also a hard pipe similar to Schedule 40 pvd but the wall thickness is less and tends to be a little for giving.

As for flexible pipe you want corrugated single wall drainage pipe. Here is a link of a company that makes it in white http://www.spipipe.com/swp.htm.

Let me know if this helps or you need more info

I even emailed Joey Christiansen and that is what he called it...."Leech Line".

The Pit may used different types of pipe, but when I was there in the fall it was Flexible.

Email Joey, he will help you.....

that stuff looks good. I wonder how strong it is. If you want to know what the stuff is just go to the Nitro Pit thread in the race section and ask Todd Jonas aka Carkingaz and he will tell you.
